Bicycle men’s Birthday card design

I thought I’d share a card I made for my brother in laws birthday recently. I haven’t done much paper crafting recently, but always try to make a card for birthdays.
It’s a bit of a running joke in our family, that he’s going to ride a 1000 miles in a year. He never does, despite having all the gear!
So will the joke in the back of mind, I just had to make him a cycling themed card.

I used paper from a paper pack I bought at Hobby craft a while ago it’s called ‘Man made’ and features more sort of industrial and male themed designs. I bought it mainly to do scrap booking for the boys as I find a lot of scrapbook materials a little too girly.

I used the cycle paper as the main card and then punched out a square from the chevrons paper. I mounted it with sticky pads and added a happy birthday motif I had in my scraps drawer.
It’s a simple design, but I think it works well and looks very much the male birthday card.

Finally I had scrap of paper left with a bike on it, so I couldn’t resist cutting it out to jazz up the front of the envelope.
