Go the extra mile

1/15/21 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Howdy, friends! A very Happy Saturday to you! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a masculine card featuring some of the coolest brads I’ve ever seen paired with black enamel dots! Masculine made easy! ;)

I created a standard A2 size top-folding cardstock from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I lightened a photo of a United States map I had on my laptop, printed it on 60# Hammermill copy paper and trimmed it down to use as the background for my card. I created a highway using a punch for the center lines and adhered it at an angle across the map. I stamped the sentiment in black ink, added three Motorcycle Brads and three Black Enamel Dots, and layered the panel on black cardstock. That’s it… it was THAT easy! ;)

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and adhered a strip of the map and black cardstock down the left side, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more look… what a fun card! If you’re a fellow biker, you know we ride in groups! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
