All Geared Up for a Great Birthday

Hello Everyone. Hope you are all well. I struggle with masculine cards but here is one I am happy with.

Sharing another Birthday card and will be linking it to the challenges below.

On with the design and ingredients.


Paper: MFT black card stock. Brown glitter paper. Brown card stock and a panel of Neenah 110# white.

Ink/coloring medium: distress inks in antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain.

Dies: Sizzix gear dies and MFT happy birthday circle.

Embellishments: Nuvo crystal drops. Versamark ink and clear embossing power.

The gear panel is a panel created with several stacked gears glued in place and then sponged with dabs of ink. Dried then did about 5 layers of clear heat embossing. It heads a cool matte waxy texture.

I used only half of the circle die in brown and layered it over a brown glitter one off set to create a shiny shadow.

Topped it off with a few glitter gears with a Nuvo drop in the center. The inside has a white panel with a small gear and I wrote geared up for a great Birthday!
