Afternoon Ride- Corrosive Design Team Card

Another month down and now November is upon us. November’s Corrosive Design team card is brought to you with an image Afternoon Ride provided by Fred, She Said and can be found by clicking here.

Every now and then I need help picking out a color scheme to use. So, for this card I asked my husband what color I should use. He picked green. Creating this card brought back a few of my childhood memories. As a child I grew up riding dirt bikes. We couldn’t afford fancy new ones but could afford to rebuild used ones from the ground up.

Having some issues with my computer and printer not willing to speak with each other I could not downsize my digital image as I usually do. I had to print the image from my phone which left me with a large image of motorcycle. No problem, I just turn the image into the card itself.

Starting out I printed my image on a piece of Canson mixed media paper. From there I colored it using Karin watercolor markers. After coloring a majority of the motorcycle, I allowed it to dry well. To color the engine, I used a silver Gelly roll pen and a blender pen. I diluted the silver ink, so it wasn’t to over powering and it allowed the engine to look closer to an engine color. Once everything was colored, I used my heat gun to dry and set the ink.

With the image being dry, I fuzzy cut it out. Using my image as a guide I created a card base out of an 8 1/2”x11”. To do this I laid my image on top of the card stock and picked a good hinging point for my card. I then scored the cardstock at that point. Next I took a measurement of my cardstock from the left end of the page to my score line which was 4.5”. With that measurement I knew I needed to trim my overall cardstock to 9”. Once I had my cardstock cut and creased, I then glued my image from my hinging point down to the top layer of my creased card stock (card base). To stiffen the top portion of the card I used the leftover 2” piece of cardstock and glued it to the top portion of the images that has not been attached to the creased cardstock (card base). Next I cut the whole image out to create a stand up motorcycle card.

Please let me know if you have questions on how to create this fun card.

Thank you for stopping by today.
