I seem to be in the mode of creating masculine cards lately, for the standard birthdays, etc. This week I needed a card for a friend recovering from a serious illness. I'm also into using digitals - quick and easy! Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the motorcycle image, but it fit the sentiment from Create with TLC so well, I decided to use it. I like the way it turned out, don't you?
Note: finished card size is 5" x 7"

BASE CARD and MAT
Start with a piece of dark blue card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5" and fold. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 4" x 6 7/8", and mount on the top part of the card front. Cut/emboss the Fleur De Lis edge from light green card stock. Trim to 7" long, and mount on the card front, covering the edge of the patterned mat.
Print the motorcycle image on white card stock, and trim closely. Use a craft knife to cut out central spaces. Mount on the left card front using foam squares.
Print the sentiment image on white card stock, then cut/emboss using a classic circle die. Cut/emboss light green card stock using the Fleur De Lis pendant shaped die. Glue the die cut on the right card front, and the sentiment on the die cut.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!
