ATV Birthday Card

I made this card for my nephew Tyler who is turning 12 today. I stepped out of my box and made the base of the card with colored card stock - not white (shocking). It is a little more challenging to me to come up with male cards since I have 2 little princess'. I used my Gypsy to size and lay everything out (and I am loving the hide contour feature!!!) to make sure it worked. I know I need to work on my picture taking, the ATV is cut from shimmery paper to give it a metallic look. I inked the edges on the front of my card and the patterned layer. I also added a white layer inside to write on which I also inked the edges on.

I am entering this in 2 challenges this week:

Today's Wacky Wednesday challenge on More Than Favors is a Birthday Theme.

On Cricut Cardz Challenge today the theme is Anything Goes.

Card base: Stampin Up! Dusty Durango cardstock
Pattern Layer: Creative Memories Earthy Outdoor
Sign: Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip cardstock / Creative Memories Black number stickers
ATV: Camp Out Cricut Solutions Cartridge / Stampin Up! Basic Black cardstock / Recollections shimmery green cardstock
Stamp: My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions / Stampin Up! Basic Black ink pad
Thanks for taking a peek

Lori this looks great!!! Thanks for joining us at More Than Favors for the Wacky Wednesday Challenge!

Happy Crafting,


I always love looking at everyone's cards. Especially when they point out a Cricut cut I've never noticed. I had no idea this ATV was on that Camp Out cartridge. Wonderful job on a young man's card. They are challenging. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CCC.


The card turned out well. I always find it hard to make cards for boys, especially ones this age.
