Mountain Bike Birthday Card

So tomorrow is my husband’s birthday and I have been laid out with the crud for four days. I totally forgot to get the ingredients at the store when I when on Monday since that is when I started to crash. Thankfully I spent a bit of time on Sunday to make his birthday card!!

My husband loves to Mountain Bike so I wanted to design a card around his passion. I had this idea to make it a slider style card and then realized as I was cutting the pieces it may be hard with the bike tires being open. So I added the brown circle to the front tire to help make it move. I cut the trees and mountains using my Cricut.

The quote is perfect for him and is from a retired stamp set. I sponged the background with Bluebird, then spritzed with Close to My Heart’s stamp cleaner. I am excited to give this card to him and hope that I will be back in the land of the living again soon.

Happy Crafting!

Mountain Biker Birthday Card

Today is my husbands birthday!  I love creating unique cards for him and this year is no exception.  He has always loved to ride his mountain bike but when we lived in Louisiana you don’t have a lot of mountains LOL.  When we moved to Washington State he did not really ride which was a bummer.  So when we moved to Colorado three years ago he got back into it in a big way.  So what would be a good card for him? A mountain bike card!!

The mountain bike is from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge and the mountains are from Dinosaur Tracks. I use New England Ivy, Kraft, White Daisy,  Glacier, Black, and Silver Foil which are all Close to My Heart.  The blue green is from my stash.

Happy Crafting!
