Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Birthday for Logan, Another Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Yesterday I shared the card I created for Troy with the Classic Garage Suite, and today I'm sharing Logan's card with the same suite:
I chose Basic Black, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White, Silver Foil, to coordinate with the Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper print.  I used the Big Shot Embossing Mats to emboss the Silver Foil with the gears thinlit that is originally intended to cut paper. The Embossing Mats let you turn just about any metal thinlit into an embossing medium! After I embossed the Silver Foil, I cut it with a Layering Oval Framelit, then layered it onto a Basic Black smooth oval and finally a Tranquil Tide scalloped one. I topped it with "Happy" cut from the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die, adhering with tiny dots of Liquid Glue.


I couldn't resist adding a key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.


Inside I stamped the "nuts" across the top after inking them with Tranquil Tide, Basic Black, and Basic Gray Stampin' Write Markers. Stamping a second and a third time before re-applying more ink gave the shading of the colors. I added "Birthday" from the Happy Birthday Thinlet, also with Liquid Glue.

Happy Birthday Thinlit Tip: To use both words of the phrase, you will need to cut out two "Happy Birthday" phrases with the thinlit first. Then you will cut out "Happy" from one and "Birthday" from the other one. The leftover words will be discarded because they are cut in to to achieve complete and smooth letters.


The Geared Up Garage set does have a car image, but I used a Garage Gears Thinlits Die to cut out the car directly from the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.

I used a piece of the same paper on the middle fold of this z-fold card.
