All Geared Up, Masculine Birthday or Father's Day Card

I got out my "All Geared Up" stamp set and thought I would make a masculine card.  I had mixed feelings about this card.  Ever since this set came out I would play with it now and then and regretted not getting the Designer Series Paper (DSP) to go with it.  Well, after cleaning in my workroom, I had found the 6" x 6" DSP with my other 6" x 6" DSP stacks.  So all this time I could have been playing with it.  See, that is how messy my workroom was.  But now that I have sorted through my papers I should be able to find things better.  It just got out of control.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP from the "Classic Garage" 6" x 6" paper stack.  Now you could take the car image and Versa Mark ink and stamp over some Basic Black card stock and emboss it with white embossing powder and you'd have a close look to this.  Or maybe white craft ink on black or gray card stock.  But I'm using the DSP since I have it!  Sometimes I wish that Stampin' Up! would carry over their DSP to the next catalog.  Some of it is so pretty and fun that it should carry over.

Okay, back to my card.  I die cut a Whisper White circle, mine is 2-5/8" and I also die cut a scalloped circle a little bit larger.  I also cut some gears at the same time.  I stamped some bolts on the Whisper White circle using Smoky Slate ink that was stamped off once.  I taped it to the Real Red card stock and I taped those layers to the DSP.

I stamped the car on Whisper White card stock and die cut it out.  I colored it with both the light and dark Real Red Blends pens.  I colored the grill using light Smoky Slate and the lights were colored in using light Daffodil Delight Blends.  I set the car in place using Dimensionals.

I stamped the words on a 3-1/8" x 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I also cut a 3-1/4" x 7/8" piece of Real Red for the layer. I taped those two pieces together and I set them in place using Dimensionals.  I glued the gears in place and added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was done. 

I do like playing with this set.  I am going to have to look in the new catalog and see what DSP they have to go with it. I would love to play with it more.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
