Rev up some birthday wishes!
Our church card ministry meets once a month to create a variety of cards to use for church members. At our last gathering, we focused on birthdays. It's SO hard to come up with a nice masculine card....motorcycles are very popular for the young boys as well as the "young at heart" boys on our church birthday list so I used this great motorcyle image which was available as a single stamp sometime over the last year. I don't recall if it's been long enough for the card to be officially 'retired" but suspect it has been...too bad! It's a great stamp but it still makes a quick and easy card! We stamped the bike in black StazOn onto a white panel, sponged some black around the edges and layered it on a black base. The Tempting Turquoise panel was stamped in Turquoise with the Sanded background stamp (109294 $17,95 wood mount only, another great masculine image! item ) to give a little interest and the birthday sentiment from "On Your Birthday" (item 111664 for $33.95 in wood mount only) was stamped in the bottom corner Finally, the turquoise panel was layered onto a folded white base to set off the colors as well as making it much easier to write a greeting inside for the birthday boy. Enjoy! Jan
