- Birthday Gear
Having realized that it is Mojo Monday and I want to enter a card, I also realized that we have a guy friend with a birthday this week! What luck!
Now I have a double incentive for this card. The M in the corner is the gentleman’s initial. I flip-flopped the position of the round elements from the design.
This is almost 100% Tim Holtz: the Alterations Gadget Gear die, the Alterations Scallops and Postage border dies, the Distress Stickles in Rock Candy and Antique Bronze, Distress Crackle Paint in Tarnished Brass, Tim Holtz Seasonal paper, Game Spinners, Sprocket Gears and Ranger Glossy accents.
I added a button with twine and Spellbinders Mega Nestabilities Small Deckled Mega Rectangles, both cut and embossed, to display my Birthday message stamped with yet another Hampton Arts stamp from the $1.00 bin at Michael’s. I used Momento Timber Brown ink. The larger paper gear was from a piece of paper I had been experimenting on with a foiling technique that left it kind of dotted with different colors of metal flakes. I never throw that stuff away!!
It was fun getting back into the Steam Punk look of the Tim Holtz designs. They are so great when a masculine card is needed. I hope our friend enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
