No cricut? No Problem!! Harley Birthday Card

Hey all! Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekeend! I wanted to post a card I made for my sister's birthday. My cricut was unavailable temporarily but I wanted to get this made so I had to rock it old school ~ no cricut! But it is fun to do that once in awhile.
I wanted to post this because I think the fold is pretty cool, and I love the way it turned out where I used a red copic to color only one image on the black & white designer paper. The first layer is held in place with a brad and  ...hmmm I don't know what those things are called???... can anybody help me out (see pic). Anyway, the first layer opens to the right to display a hidden panel on the card front, then the main card opens to the left. That first layer is continued on the inside of the card, like a smaller card, flipped to open the opposite of the main card. Hope you like it, I think my sister will!

Sentiment: (Front)"happy birthday sweet sister"  (first open) "with the wild side"  (Inside) "hope your birthday's a wild ride"

Cardstock - Bazzill & Papertrey Ink
Designer paper - DCWV - black & white roses and I colored one rose with a red copic.
Border punch - EK Success
Also used was a sakura glitter pen to hightlight some of the words which were printed on my computer and cut out into small tiles and the edges inked
Not sure if you can see the inside clearly but there is a water mark of a motorcycle, this is where I will write my greeting.

As u probably read--I was Cricutless for over 3 weeks (I now have a baby Bug--bought a recondition one that pooped out after a week and they sent me a brand new one.) They gave me $100 credit because of program problems--so it was FREE! I made the quilt card Mary posted. I was getting the shakes! LOL!

Great cards!

Hugs, Storylady
