How to make a Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card using Rinea foil, Tonic Studios die and Diamond plate embossing folder from Darice. Just a few weeks ago I purchased the Chopper Bike die from Tonic Studios. Today I decided to make a card using this new die.
Knowing that the Rinea foil I wanted to use was two sided I began the process. The foil I selected is the smooth gold and silver color.
I’m so glad that I picked up the Diamond Plate embossing folder as this was the perfect background to go with the Chopper.
Supplies and Tools Used for Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card
Gold / Silver Rinea Foil
Chopper Bike – Tonic Studios
Diamond Plate embossing folder – Darice
Happy Birthday – Brutus Monroe Sharon’s Script

Thermoweb Tape Runner XL

The process is pretty easy for this card. To begin cut a piece of the gold/silver foil just under 4.25 in. x 5.5 in. This will be the background and topper for the card. Place the silver side up inside the Diamond Plate embossing folder and put through the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine from Sixxiz.
Die cut the chopper bike with the gold side of the Rinea paper. Die cut the chopper out of two scraps of watercolor paper. These will be used to raise the chopper up and add dimension.
Adhere the three choppers together using Zig Two Way glue with the gold chopper on top.
Using an awl or hole punch, pierce the silver diamond plate paper in all four corners. Place black brads in each corner. Adhere silver panel to the A2 greeting card using Thermoweb Tape Runner XL.
Stamp Happy Birthday with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink Raven on a scrap of white card stock. Glue to a slightly large scrap of black cardstock with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. Trim the ends with scissors to look like a pennate. Using White Adhesive Foam Squares on the sentiment mount in the upper center of the card.
Adhere Chopper Bike to the card using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
Admire the Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card that you just made.
Simple card huh? My husband really liked how the diamond plate set off the Chopper Bike on this card. He said it was one of his favorite cards. I think partly is because it is a “guys” card and there was nothing girly about this one at all.
