Motorbike male birthday card

Good Morning all, i hope you had a good weekend and all that rain we had missed you. 

So for something completely different today, i had to make a birthday card for a older male family member, in his youth he loved his motorbikes.

First i die cut the bike in red gloss and black gloss cardstock, as the outside line of the tyre is so fine i wanted to back it with card to add stability, so i embossed the die only onto grey pearl cardstock, i then cut around the outside line.  I then glued the black gloss bike onto the grey one, sticking those fine outside tyre line not so easy, so don't look too close! lol I then cut parts off the red gloss bike off and glued on top, slightly offset so the black peeks through and adds more depth. 

For the background i embossed sizzix framelits shape with spellbinders kicking rubber embossing folder, matted on black gloss cardstock.  I then die cut tim holtz corner from white cardstock and mattered again onto black gloss cardstock.  White A5 cardblank.  Sentiment die cut in red and black and cut in half to fit.  

and one for the box using a different corner die in the background. and on this one instead of the black gloss card i used dark green mirror card.
