All "geared" up & manly...

~ How cool is this for a masculine card?? I have the hardest time creating cards for the special guys in my life because they don't tend to appreciate fun bright colors, Primas, Stickles, and decorative borders!!!
I was thrilled when I discovered these cutting files designed by Jan Bryson of Sam & Hailey Designs. The gear-themed Roundie card quickly cut like a dream! I used metallic cardstocks and black Staz-On for the distressed look. The stamped sentiment is from Stampin' Up! A copper brad and a silver bookplate attached with cord helped to complete the project. The smaller gears in different varieties were perfect for embellishing the envelope!

Hope you had a great Monday!!
