Garage Gears


The stamp set has sentiments to prove my point. For this card, I chose “Best Dad,” which has coordinating, Geared Up Garage, dies. I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, then cut the top piece from Gray Granite cardstock, and glued the two together.


How do you like the way I colored the car? Actually, it was cropped from a piece of the Classic Garage 6X6 Designer Series Paper. How fun is that!


There are many great dies in this set, and a favorite is the gears. They are made to shine by using some Champagne Foil.

The red leather background is also a piece of the Classic Garage 6X6 DSP, which I cut with a Rectangle Stitched die. The red leather is layered on Neutrals 6X6 DSP, which is layered on a Gray Granite card base.


After the car and sentiment were placed on dimensionals, the last detail was a small edge of gears in Basic Black cardstock, as seen in the TGIF Challenge.


On a side note, my mother drove a pale yellow, 1964 fastback mustang, and it was one of her prized possessions. It had beautiful, black leather seats, a gorgeous wood steering wheel, and she drove it until she could no longer see. Gals like cars too!


Thanks for stopping by!  Be safe on the road!
