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.
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cage, Whisper White, Crushed Curry
Ink: Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Black, Versamark
Stamps: Geared Up Garage, Crackle Paint
Other Supplies: Textured Impressions Stripes embossing folder, Stitched Shapes framelits, Garage Gears thinlits, Twine, Dimensionals

It’s time to make that special someone a special card. I used the extras from cutting out the large heart to make a second card with the reverse side of the DSP that was used in the first card. Basically a two for one and no waste!
