Any young boy would be happy to get this card for their birthday. I made this card for my great nephew, who's birthday is next week. All week you have seen me use the Geared Up Garage stamp set in different ways. For this card, I used the stamp set again, however, I added another stamp set, Perennial Birthday, for the sentiment.
Did you notice the paper under the card? It is a sheet from the Classic Garage 6" x 6" designer series paper! Did you also notice the gears on the card are the same ones on the paper? How cool is that! Yesterday on my Stampin Scrapper Facebook page, I shared a tip on how to cut out the images on the paper. If you didn't see it on my page, here it is.
How cool is that!!! You can get three big group of gears out of every sheet and then you have all the little ones that you can use for other projects. I added one of the small group of three gears to the top right section. I thought it looked bare there, so I added more gears. We are making this card for my Stamp A Stack on Sunday. I am hoping to have it on Sunday. I was suppose to have my class last weekend, but we got a foot of snow. Now, they are saying we could get 5-8 inches of snow this weekend. If I can't have my class this weekend, then we will try again next weekend! LOL
For the sentiment I first stamped the background image with a stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set. I used the Gray Granite ink and stamped my image off on a scrap piece of paper first, before I stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink. On the inside of the card and on my envelope I stamped the image you see in the picture above. I, then popped the Real Red circle using Stampin Dimensionals and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the gears.
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
- cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
- a piece of scrap paper for a 2" circle
- a piece of scrap paper for the 1 3/4" circle
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
While I was editing my photos yesterday, I decided to play a little bit. I have never done a picture in a shape other than a square or rectangle. This time I decided to try a circle. I have to say, I like it.
In this picture I love how bright the colors are. This card is such a bright and cheery card, that you really could use it for anyone's birthday.
I sure hope my great nephew likes his birthday card!
