One for the Boys

February 28, 2019

I am one of those card makers who would rather do a flowery female card than one designed for males.  I have to work really hard to do them.  Today I worked on using the Geared Up Garage stamp set and some of the co-ordinating Designer Series Paper.  For the first card I stamped the car image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set oto the top of Whisper White card using Tranquil Tide ink.  I stamped the “smoke” image from the same stamp set behind the car using Basic Gray ink which I had stamped off onto scrap paper first.  I attached a narrow strip of basic black behind one edge of a piece of the Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper before attaching the panel to the bottom of the stamped card.  I used the Triple Banner Punch to punch one short end of two small pieces of the same Designer Series Paper.  These banners are attached to the left hand side of the card front. I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set onto Whisper White card using Tranquil Tide ink.  I punched one short end of the Whisper White card using the Triple Banner Punch.  The stamped card is attached to Basic Black card which also has one short end punched using the Triple Banner Punch.  The banner is attached to the card front of the designer series paper.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Basic Black card behind one long edge of a piece of the same Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.  I attached the designer series paper panel to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The second card uses the same layout but I stepped it up a bit.  The large panel of Designer Series Paper is embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Instead of adding a strip of Basic Black card, I cut the Basic Black card using the border die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  The car is stamped onto scrap Whisper White card, cut out using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I also cut the three cog die from Basic Black card and attached it to the card front.

To decorate the inside I once more cut the Basic Black strip with the border die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. The Designer Series Paper is also embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.  I also cut the three individual cogs from Basic Black card using dies from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and attached them around the stamped greeting.

I think both cards turned out great but I think the second one is just a little bit more special.  What about you?  Which one do you like the best?

Bye for now,

Kris
