Father's Day cards

With Father's Day fast approaching I had a few cards to make that had to be mailed like now!
In my haste to get them finished I forgot to photograph one of them and it's already on it's way, but here's one of them.

My brother is a huge Harley-Davidson biker fan so this card is right up his alley (or road). It was made from some HD scrapbook paper I had been hoarding for a few years.  I cut up the paper so that the belt would be the focal image of the card (the belt was too long so I had to adjust it).  Then heat embossed a sentiment on the seam binding and added a few silver brads. I also made the card size taller to accommodate the belt.

Here's a peek at the inside sentiment.  I first stamped off once and then stamped the motorcycle directly onto the card base.  Typed the wording on the computer onto vellum paper and adhered over the motorcycle image.  I think it
 turned out good.
Did you notice I lined the envelope with more of the denim paper to finish off the look.

Nancy this is too stinkin' cute and just perfect for your brother. It was even better when I got to 'touch' it. Looks like you can unbuckle the belt! Great idea. ...
Now I'm waiting for you to post that pillow! Hugs

You were one of my stops on the Out and About in the Moxie Fab World Tour. I had a peek around your blog, and really enjoyed seeing some beautiful Clean and Simple Cards. Thanks so much for sharing :)

This belt is so stinkin' clever, I just LOVE it!
