Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/16 x 5 5/16″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Zip a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock through the Big Shot, with the Garage Gear Thinlit Die and Big Shot Embossing Mats. Stamp the background (Geared Up Garage) in Smoky Slate Ink, using 2nd Generation Stamping (stamp off onto scratch paper first).   Adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  4. Use the Big Shot and Garage Gears Thinlits to crop various gears in Basic Black Cardstock. 
  5. Stamp the toolbox in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and coordinating die.  Color with Light & Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Adhere the gears to the back with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Smoky Slate Cardstock.  Trim to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere as shown with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. 
  7. Add three pieces of Pick A Pattern Washi Tape in the upper left corner.  Add a Classic Garage Metal Element with a Mini Glue Dot. Add three Best Route Enamel Shapes for a final touch.

I love using the Big Shot Embossing Mats to get more ways to use my dies.  The large gear die was the perfect for showcasing what the Embossing Mats can do for you!

Smoky Slate is the perfect color for a masculine creation. Add in a touch of black and some REal Red for a pop of color and you have a simple birthday card for that special man in your life.

    Love how you used the die to emboss, Stesha! The toolbox is the perfect stamp to go with gears and I love the wrench in the corner!!
