Hi everyone, how are you? Today I want to show you a masculine card. Most of the time it's very difficult to make some masculine cards, because i miss all the flowers and leaves to decorate the card.

But for this card I used the gorgeous Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 22PK - Gearhead Item #661184, then you'll have a great base for the card.

Used products:

Sizzix Big Shot Express Machine Only (White and Grey) Item #660850
*  Sizzix - Thinlits Die Set 22PK - Gearhead Item #661184
 Sizzix  Framelits 8PK  - Tag Collection by Tim Holtz 658784

In the package of the Sizzix - Thinlits Die Set 22PK - Gearhead Item #661184 you will find 22 dies. One big corner with gears and 21 gears in different sizes. I cut some different sizes of the gears, some in blue cardstock and others in Kraft Cardstock.

On the Kraft Gears I added some Versamark ink and Fran-táge Aged Taupe Embossing powder, Can you see how gorgeous the gears are? This Embossingpowder is very thick and will give some more body to the gears.

I added several Gears behind the image and behind the card.

I also used the Sizzix  Framelits 8PK  - Tag Collection by Tim Holtz 658784 behind the Vintage image of the car. The Vintage image and the designpapers are by Maja Design - the Vintage Romance collection.

To give the card a tough look I used currogated cardstock behind the designpapers. Futhermore I used some Filmstrip Ribbon by Tim Holtz, some label stickers and wooden arrows for the decoration.

I hope to give you some inspiration with this card. Wish you all a very nice and lovely day.
