I am back with a Father’s Day card design using the Geared Up Garage stamp set (item #148590) and coordinating dies (item #148521). This is a fabulous stamp set for the men in your life. What man or teenage boy is not fascinated by some aspect of a car – whether it be simple maintenance to keep it running, rebuilding an engine or the entire car or simply driving a car.
When this stamp set first came out, there was a coordinating pack of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper but it has since retired. So, in my Facebook Live crafting session of May 16, I demonstrated how to create a background using stamps and ink. You can watch the video here.
I’ve made several cards with the set for birthdays and it’s always a big hit.
The coordinating die set allows you to cut out many of the images and when adhered to your card with dimensionals, they add more visual interest.
