Geared up 4 Ways

May 7, 2019

Today’s post is another one aimed at using up some of my Designer Series Paper.  I wanted to cut some of my Classic Garage Designer Series Paper and used an old method that I have tried before.  I cut four pieces of Designer Series Paper to the same size, then I cut each of the pieces into four more pieces.  I swapped around the pieces until I had one piece for each design on each Basic Black layer.  The panels are attached to scored and folded Basic Gray card.  I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto four different colours of cardstock (Crushed Curry, Real Red, Tranquil Tide and Pumpkin Pie) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the cars using the co-ordinating Garage Gears Thinlits Dies.  Each car is attached to a Very Vanilla oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits DiesThe Very Vanilla ovals are attached to Basic Black scalloped ovals cut using the same dies, and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the cards, I cut out the large cog image from Basic Black card using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and attached them to Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the greeting from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched them out using the Tailored Tag Punch.  The greetings are attached over the Basic Black die cuts.

I am really happy with the way these cards turned out.  All the different pieces of Designer Series Paper co-ordinate so perfectly no matter which way you use them.  If you wished you could swap out some of the Designer Series Paper for coloured card which is embossed to add dimension.

And to be really kind you can download a PDF of the format I used to create these cards here.  Sorry but the dimensions are in centimetres.

Just a reminder that this stamp set and co-ordinating dies will carry over to the next annual catalogue BUT the bundle will not.  So if you want this stamp set and co-ordinating dies you need to purchase before the end of May to be able to save on the bundle purchase.

Bye for now,
