I am working on a scrapbook of all the cars we have owned. And that put me in the mood to make this Geared Up Garage Card. So start your engines and let’s get creating.

MEASUREMENTS

  • Smoky Slate cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • Thick Whisper White cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for card panel
    • scraps for stamping and die-cutting
  • Classic Garage DSP (retired) or stamp car on Thick Whisper White

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

BACKGROUND

  • Die-cut large gear bundle from DSP white cardboard backing. You will use this as a mask. The thicker cardboard works great.
  • Place gear mask in center of card panel and blend Basic Gray with a sponge wedge around the gears. TIP: Hold the mask firmly and realign if necessary. Use light sponging to prevent lines.
  • Die-cut panel with Stitched Rectangle die.

PIECES

  • Car:
    • Glue black fun foam (from a craft store) on the back of the DSP (black cars).
    • Fussy cut or die-cut the car with black foam backing.
  • Gears:
    • DIe-cut gears from Thick Whisper White.
    • Lightly sponge with Basic Gray. TIP: Use the sponge from the background step and do not re-ink to prevent over-inking.
  • Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
    • gas can and toolbox and die-cut
    • sentiment and fussy cut.
TIP: Cut images apart before die-cutting. It’s easier to control die placement.

ASSEMBLY

  • Layer all the elements as shown.
  • Add wrench from the retired Classic Garage Metal Elements.
  • Customize the message insert and the envelope with stamped images and/or patterned paper.

As I finish the car scrapbook pages, I will post them. We are digging through photos to find a couple of each car. Wish us luck!
