50th Birthday Card

I have a friend who likes me to make special cards for her for her family but she usually has a very clear idea about what she wants on it. This can be both a blessing and a curse. For her dad's 50th she wanted a card with a picture of a motorbike on it, balloons, glitz but very masculine glitz and on the outside she wanted "To a Dad" and on the inside "who makes turning 50 look cool"

The photo of the motorbike I got off the internet which I mounted onto black and then silver metalic card. The patterned paper is by Hot off the Press (I think) which I added silver and black gems to. The balloons and lettering on the front were made using dies by Go Kreate.

For the inside I printed the words on the computer and then added the 50 which I made using my Cricut. I again added little silver gems to the 0 to add the bling. To finish I stamped the image of the bike onto white card then cut round it and added it to the bottom corner.

She was really made up with it and said her dad loved it too! Phew! :0)
