My brother has loved motorcycles for as long as I can remember and has owned a few here and there! Though I am terrified for the people who ride motorcycles... I acknowledge and understand my brother's passion for The Ride!! He currently has made the switch from the 'crotch rockets' I remember from the past to the more sophisticated ride of a Harley touring bike. He and his wife enjoy long cross country rides together on his new bright red beauty!! When I started working on his card they had just returned from a trip that took them from southern Oklahoma to northern Wisconsin! They had a wonderful time seeing all that beautiful country. Okay so all of that to give you the reason for the elements I chose for his card.
|Well Traveled Birthday - Tri Shutter Card|
For the front and back panels, I searched and searched until I found a digital image of a map of the state of Wisconsin (most of their trip was centered around being in Wisconsin). I made sure that specific cities of significance were visible. I distressed the edges of the map pieces with red SU! Real Red and the center sentiment piece with SU! Old Olive. As for the motorcycle - just when I was about to give up on finding a sticker of a motorcycle that was red, I was walking down the sticker isle for the last time in the last available store in my area when my 2 1/2 year old son said, "look mommy, motorcycle!!" I looked where is little finger was pointing and there it was!!! Not just a motorcycle - but a RED one, yeaaahh!! My little man saved the day!! I would tell you the sticker deets but I have forgotten and already threw away the outer packaging, I'm sorry. I can tell you I got it at HL and it also had a leather jacket, gloves and a helmet. The other dp is from the Paper Studio's glory 2 God paper pack. The ribbon accents are 1" grosgrain.
