I haven’t posted a card using the Geared Up Garage in a while so I thought I would get it out again. I just love those little gears. I have no idea why. I’m certainly not a mechanic and neither is Rob but I just think they are so cute. I first saw them at OnStage in November and I knew they would be the first thing I would get. Maybe it is because it is so hard to make a masculine card and this set is perfect for that.
To make this card I first cut out the gears using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies out of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I stamped the tool box in Gray Granite and cut it out using the same set of dies. Then I ran a piece of Gray Granite cardstock through my Big Shot using the Hexagons Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock and used the Banner Triple Punch to cut out the end. I did the same thing with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Humming Along which is also in the 2019 Occasions catalog. I just realized, as I am going through all my paper and can’t find it that the Designer Series Paper is from a pack in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and therefore, is now retired. Oops. Sorry about that!
