Vintage Bicycle

Shirley, posting today!   I have made a Vintage masculine card,in a Kraft and black color combo, to  show you today.   It would make a great birthday card for the man in your life.

I started my card with a black card base, then layer Kraft, black and cut a piece of designer paper to go over the layers.

The dies I used to cut my frame and circles were from a die set from my collection. I used the Dots embossing folder to emboss my Kraft circle.  I used the Memory Box Vintage Bicycle die with black card stock  to cut the bicycle. I adhered the bicycle to the Kraft paper with Art Institute Clear Adhesive.

As the finishing touch , I used gold beads to embellish the bicycle and frame. *NOTE - if you do not have gold beads handy, you could use Petite Scalloped Circle Sm - Nestabling - Gold Rhinestone or a Viva Decor Pearl Pen - Gold.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you enjoyed the card.

With this diecut bicycle and the color scheme, I think you have come up with the perfect masculine birthday card - just so long as you don't say something inside about him being as old as this bicycle - FUN CARD!

Your card is so very, very cute - and I really love the bicycle die. The bicycle sort of reminds me of the Big Wheel that Chad had when he was little!
