Hello Peeps,

I am here today with another gear card!  I have fallen in love with this Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets die set!  I have always had trouble making masculine cards until now!  With this set you just cut out some gears, put them on a card and find a sentiment.

For this A2 card I started with kraft card stock for the base of the card.  Next I took a piece of striped paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added it to the card.  Then I cut out the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockts in gold and silver paper and added them to the card.  Then I took the dude stamp from my Paper Smooches Slang Gang Stamp set and stamped the silver cirlce with black ink and added that to the card.  Lastly I took some brads and added them to one of the gears.  That's it and now I have a masculine card ready for my next box of cards going to Operation Write Home.   So what do you think?  Would the man in your life like this card or what?  I know every card I have made so far with these gear dies ~ my husband says how much he likes that card!!

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun or masculine today!!

Thanks for stopping by!
