This card was made for my big brother Don! He loves motorcycles and even owns one. He was supposed to take me out riding last time I visited, but we ran out of time. So, I made this card for his birthday to remind him for next time...lol. The pre-colored image and the designer paper are both from the Motorcycle Mania set. The sentiment is actually a cut file from Silhouette's online store (born to ride #18678), but instead of cutting it, I turned it into a digital image and printed it. If you bring a cut file into the software, you can remove the cut lines and turn it into a print instead. I also added a gradient color and printed it, along with the pre-colored image, on white card stock. The center of the frame was used to cut the image to fit inside the frame without hanging over. In addition to the designer paper, I printed the solid color orange from the same set. This was then used to cut the top layer of the tribal flame frame (design #3425). I wanted to make sure the oranges matched perfectly. The back portion of the frame was cut using black card stock. Using foam dots, I raised the frame up on the designer paper. I added 5 metal dots on both sides to finish the card.
Of course, after the card was in the mail, I thought of using the helmet that is part of the set as an embellishment, so that's just a little idea for you if you want. I would have added glossy accents to make the helmet shine too. Here is what you get with the set.
