Hi there! I hope everyone is doing well, and continuing to stay safe and healthy 🙂 This card is out of the ordinary for me in a couple of ways…..no colored image, and masculine! I had to make a quick retirement card for work, the recipient being a “tinkerer”, and very mechanically inclined. I die cut a gear border, and a few single gears, from metallic card, then stamped and embossed the sentiment. I sprinkled a bit of chunky embossing powder for a bit of texture in the blank space. A mirror card mat, and the outside was done. I carried out the theme on the inside, with a sentiment, matting, and die cuts 🙂
