Geared Up Garage Birthday Card

Today’s card is a masculine birthday card using the Geared Up Garage Stamp Cling Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions catalog.

My card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #383.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and used the oil stain stamp on the top of the card to give it texture.

I added a strip of the hubcap paper from the Classic Garage DSP. I didn’t want to use the silver foil for the gears because I wanted a more worn look instead of shiny, so I used some gray shimmer paper from Michaels and die cut the big gears for the black frame and the scallops on the right edge. I love the look of frames on cards, and how the gears allow the background to come through.

I stamped and colored the sports car red of course, and die cut it and popped it on the gear frame with dimensionals.

I put the greetings on the inside of the card, adding the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Birthday Banners stamp set. The retro look of this font goes great with the vintage sports car. I also added a red gas can and some extra nuts and oil stains.
