Monochromatic Masculine card

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this monochromatic Masculine card. I always find it difficult to take something for guys.  Two days back it was my Boss's birthday and I didn't have anything masculine.. So I have decided to build my stash for masculine cards.

Over to my card..

To start with, I took white stamping card stock and die cut it out using stitched rectangle dies. Then, I used gear stencil as an embossing folder and embossed it (see the close up).

After that, I stamped the gears and clock using different shades of blues on one side of the card stock. Once satisfied, I die cut some gears  from the  same stamped card stock. Then I  adhered this base on the note card and glued die cut gears back to add some interest.

I stamped the birthday sentiment and filled it with same color tone to highlight it. Finally splattered the whole card with blue color.

I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
