I used the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage stamp set and some of the Classic Garage DSP to create a quick masculine birthday card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #382.
I think that my card also works for the Inspire.Create.Challenge #040.
I started by adhering a panel from the Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front of a Basic Gray card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a smaller panel of the Classic Garage DSP to a smaller panel of Basic Gray card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered two strips of Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon to the card front with SNAIL. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Geared Up Garage stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Basic Gray card stock. I sprinkled the image with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added two of the Classic Garage Metal Elements with rolled up Glue Dots to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the hardware image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.
