A Triple Play Card for Dad


Here's a card for any dad out there who happens to like motorcycles! I already sent in my father's day cards for OWH, so I just used the sentiment "dad." In doing that, this card can be used year round in a future box.

The strips were snippets of dsp from assorted paper pads, and the background was done with a Darice brick wall ef on early espresso cardstock. I used the Su! motorcycle stamp, adding gold embossed accents and die cut it with a SB labels 25 die. I used a fine-line marker to draw around the inside of the die before cutting. I pulled out a forgotten tin of retired Hodgepodge hardware from SU! and added some heavy metal with brads and a photo turn. The sentiment was done with a Quickutz on gold embossed cardstock and added to a ticket punch.

This card will go into the following challenges:

OWH midweek throwdown -  masculine theme using the color brown
Cardz4Guyz#15 - wheel fun
Snippets Playground #121 - use snippets


Have a happy Friday everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Loving this one Carol! The papers are nice and masculine looking and I love the motorcycle-my oldest son would love this one, he is a soldier too-so I think there are many uses for this one among the soldiers! Hugs

Great card Carol! I just got that stamp and wow you sure did it justice! Err, no I didn't - I just checked and mine is different (Rev up the fun set) - super idea to use gold!
