Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight is a Masculine birthday card which must feature a technology aspect or a gadget. These could be for example, Technology - Computer, Games Console, Mobile Phone, Gadget, Car, Motorbike, Plane etc.
We are sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads with a $10 gift certificate for their store and by The Stampman with a £10 voucher for their store. By the way it was great to see the lovely Jill Tuck from The Stampman back on our screens via Create and Craft last week…. more please C&C!
Anyhow I thought I would have a bit of fun with my card.
I have had this knitted motorbike image on my pc for a couple of years now, and I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to use it. My BIL’s birthday is coming up soon and as he will be older than dirt (sorry Jim!) and when I first saw him he had a motorbike, not dissimilar to this one, this seemed perfect. I would love to know how long it took to knit the bits and how they made it fit, but it’s a fabulous image I think. I added a sarcastic sentiment to match in with the bike and it’s knitted covers plus a couple of bike charms. I do so hope my BIL still has a sense of humour after he receives this!
My papers are from Bo Bunny’s Enchanted pad, and the diecut behind the sentiment is a Spellbinders tag die.
I have included a copy of the bike picture below so you can see in better detail all the fabulous knitting work on it, or maybe it’s crochet. I must apologise but I never thought to save the information where it came from and so am unable to give proper credit, if this is your work, please yell out and I will correct that.
