Card, Geared Up Garage, Masculine, Valentine
The Classic Garage Suite was sure to grab your attention in the Occasions Catalog.  The Geared Up Bundle including the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set and Garage Gears Thinlits Dies are incredible.  Not to mention the Black and Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon, the Classic Garage Metal Elements and the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.  I know many struggle with masculine cards and a masculine valentine’s card is even more difficult.  Well here ya go!!  These cards are pushing my squeal meter to the limit, and are so incredibly easy to create.  I’ve shown you what an awesome tool the Big Shot Embossing Mats are and you’ll need them to create these cards, as you’ll see in the creative video below.

The cards are similar but not exact, as you can see.  Both use the black and white side of the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper you can earn during Sale-A-Bration now for FREE with a qualifying order.  I went with Real Red on the card above and Cherry Cobbler on the one below.  I also kicked it up a notch by dragging ink on the version I created in the video.  I’ve got to tell you, one of my husbands favorite saying is “Gear Down Turbo”, so guess what card he’s getting this Valentine’s Day 😉
