I bought this set when it first came out and have never used it. Silly me. So today I went on Split Coast Stampers to see what samples are out there using this set. I ran across this card and I thought it would be perfect to make since I had most of the stuff on the original card. The poster of this card is ladybugdesigns and you can see her original card here.
I only changed a couple of things. At the bottom right was the #80 in Midnight Muse card stock. I didn't need an 80th birthday card and I didn't have the die for the numbers so I used one of the gear images.
I also added another gear image on the Comfort Cafe decorative paper. And I also changed the greetings. I didn't have the words or the ribbon die. I just went with what I had and it worked! Once again proving to myself that I can work with what I have (but that doesn't stop me from ordering a few new things now and then!
I need to get this out in the mail tomorrow for my nephew's birthday. It's on Sunday so if he gets it on Saturday it will be early and on Monday it will be late!!! Nothing I can do about that! He's lucky I remembered so close to his birthday!!! LOL
And I also needed another masculine card for a brother-in-law so I made another card just like this one. I had all of the stuff out anyway and I figured "why not?" Those two will never get together to compare cards!!! LOL
I am not putting this set away yet. I still need a few more masculine cards for 2013. I had gotten a WONDERFUL monthly greeting card holder for a Christmas gift from a VERY special friend and I'm going to be filling it up so I can be on time this year with most of my cards. (Notice I used the word "most"?) LOL My plans are to sit down with my photo album that is filled with the Split Coast Stampers Card Sketches. I know I have typed this many times but I have all of them in one album. I just noticed today that my album is getting pretty full and soon it's going to be time to go shopping for a new one. There's around 420 layouts in that album. It's a wonderful tool to have!
This was a very fun card to make. You know me, I LOVE layers!!! This one had lots of fun ones!
Thank you SO much fro visiting today,
