Gerry's Birthday Card

Here is the birthday card that I made for Gerry last Saturday night. His birthday was on Sunday, the 25th.

I found this stamp at Stampers Corner, a stamp store in Elk Grove a few months ago and have been saving it to use for Gerry's birthday card. He is an avid cyclist so I try to find bicycle images for him.

The card base is kraft (tan), then there's a brown layer, a piece of Basic Grey designer cardstock that has browns, greens and tan stripes. The bicycle was stamped with brown ink on a piece of white cardstock. I paper pierced the left and right corners of the white layer. And that's it, very basic...its the kind of card he likes. I was going to stamp the bike in blue to go along with his new bike which is blue. I didn't like it so decided to go all brown. This is the inside of the card...a layer of white cardstock with a strip of the patterned card stock.
He posted a picture of his card on his Facebook so I guess he liked it. :) I will do a post on my Betty's Ramblings blog to tell you about our birthdays.

Yup, can't do anything elaborate for him...hahahaha!! Actually the card doesn't need anything else, I don't think. The image of the bicycle is striking by itself.

The card is sitting up on my desk. And, it wasn't blank when I got it. Thanks Honey :))
