Just a Guy Card

This card is for my boss. His birthday is tomorrow. I used my Tim Holtz gear die cut to cut the gears out of chipboard. Then I painted them with my silver paint dauber and inked them with black soot ink. I cuttlebugged some copper paper with Tim's retro circle embossing folder and inked it with black soot. Next I layered it on gold paper and inked the edges. I had some metal looking buttons that I used in the centers of the gears and added a few brads that look like screw heads. It was fun, once I got started...sometimes it doesn't end up just the way I thought it would...but this time it did. I hope he likes it!


  1. Perfect "guy" card. Really like this.

  2. what a great 'male card' just love it!

  3. Great card...I am sure he will love it...I want to come to your house for lessons...How thick of chipboard do you use?
