Creation Station: MonuMENtal

#stampinup   #creationstation   #faithfulinkspirations   Hi there! Welcome to my blog and welcome to the Creation Station May blog hop. This month we're featuring monuMENtal projects in honor of those wonderful men in our lives! When this theme was decided, I knew I'd pull out the Geared Up Garage Suite of products on pages 42 and 43 of the Occasions catalog and get to work. I also had an idea in my mind for a fun card. Did I pull it off? Let's take a look.

I love everything in the Geared Up Garage Suite--and I used just about all of it on this card!  The front of the card features two different sheets of the Classic Garage 6" by 6" Designer Series Paper. I stamped the car from the "Geared Up Garage" stamp set in Staz-On Jet Black Ink onto a Window Sheet. I used the Layering Ovals Dies to cut a window in the center of the DSP and adhered the Window Sheet to the back. I also used the Layering Ovals Dies to cut a frame for my window. I adhered the frame with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Here's a closer look at the front of the card...but keep scrolling for the magic!

I made a magic card! Just pull on the tab and slide out the panel and the card turns from black and white into fabulous living color! I used Light & Dark Real Red, Light Daffodil Delight, and Light Smoky Slate Blends to color the magic car. Watch the video! It's so cool. (I'm kind of proud of myself. Can you tell?)

But I didn't stop there! I made a double fold out card. Lookie!
I stamped a sentiment from "Geared Up Garage" in Basic Gray Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with the car die from the Garage Gears Dies. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the car to an oval I cut from an other sheet of Classic Garage DSP.

But wait! The card opens up one more time!
The gears are cut from a sheet of Classic Garage DSP--they fit perfectly! I adhered them to the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

I stamped another sentiment from the "Geared Up Garage" stamp set in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White and cut it out with its matching Garage Gears Die. I added bit of Black and Silver 1/4" Metallic Ribbon to the back of the medallion with a Glue Dot and then adhered the medallion to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed my project. I really enjoyed making it and I'm so pleased (and a little surprised) with how it turned out.
