Stampin' Up! One Wild Ride Masculine Belated Birthday Card

Happy Friday, folks. I dug out a retired stamp set for my card today. It's one I wish hadn't retired as my daughter rides and the man whose birthday this is for rides as well. I will never get rid of the One Wild Ride Stamp Set as I know too many people who ride, especially in our 55+ community. When it was allowed, they would all ride out together for breakfast in the morning. I hope it gets back to normal for them soon. I miss the sound of Harley's going past the house.


I sponged a strip of Whisper White with Pretty Peacock and Granny Apple Green to mimic sky and grass. Then I stamped the motorcycle with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. The sentiment banner, Route 66 and tire tracks are stamped in the same ink. One set of tracks is second generation. Card front donesky, as Mary would say!

For the inside, I stamped right on the card base. This is a no frills card!


The top sentiment is from the new Many Mates Stamp Set and the birthday is from the Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set. The motorcycle image is third generation Basic Gray ink.

Easy peasy, folks!

I'm entering my card at:

1. Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #372



4. As You See It Challenge #227 "A Reel Choice". One of my favorite movies is Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull because the Harley Davidson Softail is featured. Harrison Ford is not hard on the eyes, either!

My daughter and son-in-love owned a Harley Fat Boy and now own an Ultra Limited Touring Harley.  I just loved the sound of the Fat Boy. However, when you are in the midst of over 100 it is a little frightening for me! Here they are surprising us with a visit at our hotel in August 2018...a very pleasant memory, indeed!


Thanks for stopping by today and if you have any questions, let me know in a comment.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Birthday Card

Good Saturday morning, peeps. This is my last Saturday in NC and right now it's 36 degrees. It'll be a shock to go from the 50's...
