Motorcyle - Summer Mini Catalog

Can you believe it's already the beginning of August? Where did the summer go? Before you know it, it will be time for fall foods, pumpkin patches, and Halloween costumes. It also means there is only a month left to order from the summer mini catalog. One of my favorite stamps in that catalog is the motorcycle, because the men in my life love their bikes, and this makes stamp makes it easy to create masculine Father's Day and birthday cards. Another fun thing about this stamp is that it's a single stamp, which means it's very easy on the wallet & doesn't take up much storage.

I stamped the image in Not Quite Navy craft ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it some dimension and shine. Next, I used our Color Sprintzer tool to splash a little Early Espresso ink on there to age it. Then I layered it onto cardstock, some of which was textured with our Square Lattice embossing folder, which gives it a nice masculine texture. I accented it with a few brads and some ribbon & I was good to go.
You could easily make this more classic by going with Basic Black, Whisper White, and Basic Gray; or you could go sportier by adding a splash or Pumpkin Pie or Daffodil Delight, or customize it to match your loved ones' bike. Whatever you do, don't miss out on this versatile single stamp!
