Father's Day Card

Hi everyone! It's Tracey back to share a new project with you. I'm having a blast with Donna's new Spellbinders Gears Steel Rule Die. Father's Day is coming up, and I created this grungy masculine card for my dad.

Tips and Techniques

These faux metallic gears are so quick and easy to create. I simply cut the gears from heavy weight black card stock, painted with black metallic paint, then while the paint was still tacky, rubbed with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powders. They are a nice size to add grungy items to the centers from a found rusty washer to a vintage clock piece. If you like even more grungy texture, my video for textured grungy gears can be viewed HERE.

Here you can see the metallic shimmer on the gears. On the background paper I added a few strips of Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Oak and Ash Tissue Tape. My dad is a proud Air Force veteran, so I used Donna's new Spellbinders Cascading Start Die to add a patriotic touch to the background. The star piece is adhered with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

I adhered mica chips and prills across the page and around the gears for grungy texture.

One final shot.
