My nephew is a car enthusiast, so for his birthday I created this masculine card using the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears Thinlits Dies...
Bundles: Geared Up Garage Stamp Set + Garage Gears Thinlits Dies (cling: 150610). Ink: Tranquil Tide (147146), Whisper White (147277), VersaMark (102283), Tuxedo Black Memento (132708). Card/Paper: Tranquil Tide, and Crushed Curry (Classic Garage Cardstock Pack: 148484), Basic Black (121688), Whisper White (106549), Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (148482). Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132), Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder (109130), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (144220). Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Big Shot Embossing Mats (146327), Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).
I used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper as a cue for the card's colour combination, settling on Crushed Curry, Tranquil Tide with Basic Black. And check out the texture and shine behind the white embossed car...
Here's two creative tips for this birthday card:
- Add the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper to the front of the card then use the Embossing Mats and gears die to create a gorgeous impression in the background.
- Smoosh the VersaMark stamp pad on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock, add Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, tap off the excess, and heat set. Die-cut individual gears from the shiny Tranquil Tide card stock.
