I started by stamping the oil stain and little nuts from the "Geared Up Garage" stamp set in Basic Gray onto a 3-3/4" by 5" Smoky Slate panel. I stamped some elements in full strength ink and some stamped off. I adhered a 2" by 3-3/4" strip of striped Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to this piece and then onto a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Night of Navy Card Stock panel. (Bonus Protip: Use the Garage Gears Dies to the gears element out first!) I wrapped two lengths of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine around before adhering everything to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base. I used another length of Baker's Twine to tie on a cute key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.
Next, I stamped the sentiment, tool box, and oil can in Night of Navy onto Whisper White Card Stock. I punched out the sentiment with the Tailored Tag Punch and cut out the other elements with their matching Garage Gears Dies. Afterwards, I added some Basic Gray nut images to the label. I adhered these elements to the card with Stampin' Dimensonals.
Finally, I used strategically placed Mini Glue Dots to adhere the gear element to the card. I think this is a fabulous masculine card. I'm so pleased with how it turned out!
