I had intended to post before this, but lately life seems to have thrown several days at me in one, plus I have been trying to get the gardens sorted for winter, but winter is slow in coming and the weeds keep growing....
I made this card for a man who is a mechanic.
I was inspired by a card somewhere (can't member the details) where the frames where made by cutting two graduated dies at one time.
Keeping with the 'square' theme, I embossed the black panel with a square patterned folder
The greeting was stamped on the center off-cut from the frames, and embossed in copper. The greeting is a very old Hero Arts stamp, one of my originals - i am so glad stamps do not wear out!
The gears within the frames were cut from silver and copper glitter card, some bronze card with a sheen in it, and shiny black card.
The gold layers behind the dark gray frames and sentiment, are actually the wrappers from the Hershey's Kisses that we shared for Valentines.
