Geared Up Garage, Wonderful Moments, Masculine Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

I bought this fun "Geared Up Garage" set because I tend to buy most of the masculine sets that Stampin' Up! comes up with.  There are not very many masculine sets and I like to make cards for men too, mostly birthday and Father's Day. This set will cover both occasions.  I found this card on Pinterest.  You can see the original card here, I did change a few things.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Coastal Cabana card stock.  On that piece I stamped the car image many times using Coastal Cabana ink. I wrapped a piece of White Baker's Twine (that was what I had on hand) around the layer twice and tied a knot. I had tied a bow but because it was a masculine card I just knotted it instead.

I cut a 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Sahara Sand card stock.  I layered a 2" x 4" piece of Sahara Sand on top it that was textured using the "Subtle" embossing folder.  

I die cut the largest stitched circle and stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the "Wonderful Moments" set using black Memento ink.  I also stamped the exhaust smoke piece using Gray Granite ink. I stamped once on the left and then again on the right without inking up the image again.  I stamped the nuts using Crushed Curry ink.  I set the circle in place using Dimensionals.

I stamped the car and die cut it out.  I colored it in using the light Smoky Slate Blends pen. I colored the lights in using the light Daffodil Delight Blends pen.  I set the car in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  A super quick and easy masculine card. 

This would also make a great Father's Day card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
