All Geared Up

I always find it difficult to make cards for guys, so I love that I have this stamp set to use. Since the large gear die cut was going to be mostly covered up, I cut them apart and made two cards out of them. I also cut a couple of single gears to add to the design. I also tried a couple of different backgrounds on the Crumb Cake paper. One uses the Crackle Paint stamp and the other the Stripes embossing folder with some Crumb Cake ink applied.
