Hi there stampers! For today’s card I am sharing the card I made for my husband for our upcoming first year anniversary. I always find masculine cards difficult to make because I love to add glitter, rhinestones, flowers, and all things “girly”. I really struggled coming up with an idea.
I was looking through Pinterest for inspiration when I saw a card made with the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Pedal Pusher. A light bulb went off and I knew this was the stamp set I wanted to use. My husband and I met cycling so for our wedding we had a lot of bike themed decorations so using this stamp set was perfect. We even had a tandem bike like this at our wedding that we got a lot of pictures with.
See isn’t Pedal Pusher the perfect set to use?!?!? So I kept the card pretty simple. I stamped the bike in Archival Basic Black ink and then colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. I cut out the bike using one on of the framelits from the Circles Collection. I embossed my card base made from crumb cake with the embossing folder Happy Heart. I cut a piece of cherry cobbler striped ribbon (now retired) and adhered that to the card. I popped the bike up using dimensionals and then added the sentiment that was heat embossed in white on some cherry cobbler cardstock. A few white enamel dots finished the card.
So for the first anniversary you are supposed to give paper. So I figured a handmade card was perfect and then got him a subscription to Adventure Motorcycle magazine because he loves his motorcycle. I probably won’t be posting much this weekend as we plan to head to the beach to celebrate and I’ll be away from my stamp room.
