Happy Monday all - it's the start of another week (already?!) and a new challenge at Karen's Doodles. This week we're challenging you to make a criss-cross card and, in case you've never made one before, here's the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. It's not a difficult card to get the hang of and it's easy to customise to suit any occasion.
So, without further ado, here's my sample for you:
'Born to Ride'
Paper: Black 'leather embossed' paper from (aged) stash!
Other: KDS Motor Company logo, put together on PC.
The moment I rediscovered this piece of paper, I knew it would be for this image. The 'leather' embossing is perfectly reminiscent of an old leather panier bag and with the addition of a few brads it turned perfectly into the base for this card.
I transformed a black and white version of a well-known motorbike badge into the KDS (Karen's DoodleS) badge by adding some wings, and then, for the inside of the card, enlarged it and printed it as a watermark beneath the sentiment.
And I couldn't resist using this sentiment! It's what I used to say to an ageing, motorcycling friend of mine when he regaled me with stories of his speedy tours of North Yorkshire. Mind you, this guy looks too cool and relaxed to speed, don't you think?
