I have a co-worker that asked if I could make a birthday card for her son. Her parents want to get him a mountain bike for his birthday but want him to go pick it out with them so she thought they could give him a card with a mountain bike theme to tell him they are going together to get him a new bike.
Here's the card:
I made the background with distress inks and a sponge. I learned how to make the mountain scene by watching this video: How to Make a Background of Mountains. Pumice stone was used for the mountains and tumbled glass for the sky. I cut out a black frame and the pieces for the bike. I embossed the black bike pieces (except the tire) with a stripe embossing folder. I made the design on the tire with a gold marker. I attached all the bike pieces together, coiled the thin wire around the brads and attached them, and attached the bike to the background.
On the inside, I stamped a simple Happy Birthday.
I am entering these challenges with this card:
