Saturday was my son, Sam’s birthday. He lives in Tennessee and we were at his house for his birthday. Only one thing was missing. Sam. He had a conference and we were there to take care of Madelyn and Nolan while he was gone. We had a great time with the grands even though Sam was not there. We celebrated without him. As you can expect, pictures will be posted soon!
I made this birthday card using the stamp set called Geared Up Garage. It has matching dies called Garage Gears and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. As you know, it is one of my favorite sets in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Occasions Catalog. It is funny. A friend mentioned something about not getting this set because it was too vintage for them. I never thought of it as being vintage until she mentioned it. I guess that means it is a perfect set for everyone and it makes great masculine cards.
The colors I used for this card are Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day) and Whisper White. I cut out two sets of dies and then layered them together underneath the sentiment strip.
Happy birthday, Sam. You are an amazing young man and Dad and I are very proud of you! Maybe next year we can really be together!

Susan this is a great masculine card. I love that the gears are in the background, yet prominent at the same time.
I’m sure that he loved this card, even if he wasn’t there to get it! At least you got time with the grands – can’t wait to see those photos 🙂
This has always been one of my favorite color combinations; it’s very classic! I LOVE that set, because it can be vintage but doesn’t have to be. Lovely card, and I know Sam loved it. Glad you got “grand” time!
