Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop. This is my first participating and I'm so excited to join you! I have chosen to use the Geared Up Garage bundle for my card today. Here's my card.
The Geared Up Garage bundle is great for the men in your life or the mechanical minded, car loving women, too. It was one of the first bundles that I ordered.
The card base is Basic Black card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The next layer is Real Red and is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.
The black diagonal paper is part of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-Bration offerings this year. It measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.
The little rectangles of paper are from the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. This pack has 4 each of 12 double sided designs. Cut the strips 1 1/4 x 3. I usually add the two end pieces and then center the middle one.
The gears are cut out from Basic Black card stock using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies. I used a piece of black cut at 3 x 5 1/2. There is a large group of gears, three gears, and a lot of single gears. Just put them all on the paper and cut them out at one time. Run back and forth on the Big Shot several times and use the Big Shot Die Brush if needed. I used glue to adhere. If you want, this would be a great way to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to turn your gears into stickers. I did put a couple on a dimensional. Just place the gears where you want them. Leave a few for the inside.
One of the pieces of designer paper has pics of different cards. Pick one and cut it out. Add with dimentionals. My car is facing the left so I put it on the right. Switch it up if your car is facing the right. There is some of the patterned paper with motorcycles. These can be easily interchanged. Let me add that there is a framelit for a car that fits one of the cars on the paper as well as the car stamp.
The saying is from the Geared Up Garage stamp set. Stamp Best Dad in Real Red on Whisper White. Make sure there is room to the sides of the image. There is a thinlit for this. It does cut out the center, but I taped it back together on the back. Add with dimensionals. There are other sayings that work if you don't need a Dad card. If you switched sides for the car, switch sides for the saying!
Here is how I finished the inside of the card.
