How To Make A Terrific Card Using Gears For A New Look

Today I have instructions on how to make a terrific card using gears for a new look. My favorite card sketches offer placement for flowers. To use such a sketch for a masculine card apply gears or stars as your go to shape.

When using a gear the shape can be punched into the base of the card. Back it with a contrasting color and the card design begins to take shape immediately. Here the 4.5×6.5″ top layer is cut from light colored cardstock and the dark under layer is 5×7″.

These gears are punched with Kreaxions Punch #902 which can be purchased from Just Imagine Crafts. They work for a steampunk style as well. To add to this theme fussy cut a trellis or other wrought iron shape. If the design is overly involved cut portions with a craft knife and leave the rest.
The papers and dew drops for this card are from The Robin’s Nest. I used a horse tag sticker and punched stars, circles, and gears from cardstock.
The lower corners of the card I punched with Kreaxions Punch # 902 and Insert B.
ScraPerfect has adhesive and tools that are very effective with these type of embellishments. The Dew Drops adhere easily with the Best Glue Ever. It’s a breeze to add drops of glue to the thin portions of the gears by attaching a No Clog Writing Cap to the glue.
