Gearing it up Birthday

It's been a while since I last posted. I needed a break from holiday card making as well as the holidays themselves. I'm rejuvenated and ready to go  So here is my first card of the year.....a masculine birthday card.

I wanted to use gears in my project. However, I wanted to have them copper colored. So......I took a piece of white card stock and embossed it with copper EP and then cut the gears with dies from Cheery Lynn. They came out looking very realistic.

Next, I prepared my focal panel using ivory card stock and had my sentiment computer generated. Then I adhered the gears randomly on the panel and put it aside to work on the base.

The base card was prepared in ivory card stock and layered with gear patterned digital paper that I found on line. In my final step I popped on my focal panel using dimensional tape. And that completed my project.

Hope you enjoyed today's project and were inspired to create. And thanks for stopping by!

Those dies are awesome!!! I LOVE them!! This is a perfect man-card. Love your colors too. Well done. Oh, and I hear you zinged Cat with one of those games where if you comment you have to post. She zinged me and I told her I wasn't gonna do it.....haha. She said something about not wearing any underwear.

That is an awesome masculine card. I like that you embossed the gears in the copper color too. That was a smart idea and they look very cool!
