Now that we have passed Father's Day, I can share the card that I made for my father this year. Granted, he is not a biker at all, but I still think any man would think this card is pretty cool!

This is an A2 sized card. The white cardstock base was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same Neenah White cardstock and created my ink blended background. First I blended three Distress Oxide inks Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Fired Brick from top to bottom. Then I used the Tiger Stripes Stencil from Whimsy Stamps and used both Wild Honey and Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink to ink over the stencil to create the stripes (or what I thought looked like flames).
I die cut the block letters "Rad Dad" from both black cards stock and an orangey/red glitter cardstock. I layered to two colors together, slightly offsetting the black cardstock for a shadow look. These block letter dies are from the Bold ABC dies from Whimsy Stamps. I adhered the letters to the card and then heat embossed the motorcycle with gold embossing powder on black cardstock. I fussy cut the motorcycle out and adhered it to the center of the card. I stamped the "Bad to the Bone" sentiment and banner in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I adhered the banner over the motorcycle. Lastly I stamped the small skull and flames at the bottom of the card with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
I ended up liking this first card so I much that I wanted to create a more feminine/girly version!
So I kept the layout the same, I simply swapped out the Distress Oxide ink colors for Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Rich Preserves. I die cut the letter for "Bad A$$" from black cardstock and silver glitter cardstock.
Minus the sassiness of the second card (I had to find three letters that would fit keeping in line with the theme!) I hope you agree these cards are pretty wildl!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
