My wonderful husband has a birthday coming up this week. My gift to him is a set of tires for one of his motorbikes, so I wanted a birthday card that reflects that. There is nothing like the open road on the bike in his mind I am sure and I hope he will have a few wonderful days as spring and summer arrive.

I had fun making the tires, I cut them out with my Silhouette then embossed them with some texture then head embossed them for a rubberized look. I used a punch for the envelope and made it a double later to get both yellow and black. The sentiment is heat embossed and layered, I finished with some trendy tape and embellishments on the wheels.

I will admit to cursing and laughing at the same time when nothing stuck to the tires, glue slipped off, foam tape did not work either. I am hoping the glue dots I finally used with hold.
Supplies: White, black and yellow card stock, Impressions Obsession-Sentiment, MFT-DieNamics, Silhouette-wheels, misc embellishment, trendy tape.

  2. Hi Nina,

    Your card is entirely original, unique and imaginative. I think these are the best cards ever, as they really say you thought about the person.

    Very cool! So, he either knows about these tires or does not frequent your blog.
