Heavy Metal Birthday


Here's a masculine birthday card I made recently that has lots of metal on it! I started with PTI Soft Stone and die cut a Top Note. Then I cut some SB Sprockets dies in Blue, Red, Black, and embossed gold and silver. I added assorted brads in gold, black & silver, and a real piece of metal underneath the gold embossed circle. The matching mini brads were placed in a line with the Lili of the Valley sentiment. I used a Lil Inker diagonal stitched die for the blue panel, along with a large rectangle stitched die on the black card base. I was pretty pleased with the way this turned out. 

I'll share this over at the Snippets Playground #168 with all the snippets used and call it a day :)

Thanks for stopping by - make it a good one!

I love this! I was making a card yesterday using sprocket die cuts, but just used metallic colours, gold, silver and bronze. I love the effect of the bright red and blue sprockets on your card..... TFS. xx

Great guy card and I think the stitching on the top note and the diagonal strip works just right. Nice idea to have all the colored brads along the bottom with the sentiment. Have a great night.

LOL! I love that you used gears, spockets, and all sorts of metal on it but your card has bright happy colors on it and not all grunge and dark metal (nothing wrong with that but I like that you can do otherwise).
