Passionately Artistic

Since Fathers Day is right around the corner thats our theme for today.

I had to be sneaky to get this card made for my husband. He usually wants to see each card so this one I had to do under cover :) I loved this cool Vintage Norton Motorcycle image I got from Stitchy Bear.

Although this image is not a Harley my husband will love it. His motorcycle is his only transportation and he rides it rain or shine....Sooo he is definately a motorcycle kinda guy. I liked the zipper, it reminded me of a roadway and the piece of metal behind the sentiment was run thru a diamond plate folder. The little stars were also punched out of metal. I had put a red clip on it for a pop of color but just liked the monochromatic look so took it back off. Pretty clean and simple.

What did you "run" the metal pieces through to cut and dry emboss? Did you get a new Cuttlebug to replace yours? Just curious. What kind of metal did you use (soda pop aluminum can, foil, other?) Your clever use of the zipper for the road was fabulous and "he" will absolutely love it because it is filled with a whole lotta' love inside and out!

BFF, Martha
