Today is my youngest son, Zachary’s birthday. Zachary is an amazing man. Honestly, I am not sure how my children all grew up into men so fast. I still think of them as kids until I realize how old they are. Anyway, Zachary truly is amazing. He is kind, patient, a wonderful father and a wonderful son. Rob and I are very proud of him.
Although Zachary is not a car guy, I made his this card for his birthday. Geared Up Garage is a great stamp set to use for masculine cards. I don’t have many sets I can call masculine so this one gets used a lot. I love the gear dies that go with it (called Garage Gears). These products were in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and I am so glad they carried over.
The colors I used for this card are Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White. First I stamped the background using Basic Gray Ink on Basic Gray cardstock. Then I cut the gears out using Silver Foil Paper. I stamped the car and the sentiment out using Basic Gray ink and then colored it using Daffodil Delight Blends. Then I cut it out using the new dies called Stitched Nested Labels. I love these dies because they are a fun shape and they put little stitch holes in the inside and outside of the cardstock.
Happy birthday, Zachary. I love you and I am so proud of who you have turned into.
