Geared Up Garage - Creative Crafting Uncles Design Team



Hello and welcome to my blog I am excited to share with you my first post as part of the Creative Crafting Uncles Design Team.  Each month we will be bringing you a new challenge on the 15th.  This month the theme was CARS.  There are design team members from all over.  Here's a look at my card.

For my card today I went very minimalistic!  I know very unlike me.  I wanted to do something that was very striking but very graphic at the same time.  So I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! in Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock cut down to 4 3/4 x 3 1/2".  Once I had the car on there I took a die and draw a circle around the card.  I then used my ruler to add some graphic lines that intersected the circle but didn't go inside.  Once I had the lines done I colored one in black and one in gray.  I decided to leave the third the white of the paper for visual interest. 
I added some black splitters with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and then stamped the nuts from the stamp set to add a little triangle design.  I finished off my card by stamping the sentiment in Tuxedo black ink under the car.  I then added my focal piece to a card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to add an additional layer and a little more subtle visual interest to the card.  My card base was made from Thick Whisper White  cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2".

I hope that you have fun with this challenge and that you will take a little time and play along.  You can do so by clicking here and visiting the Creative Crating Uncles Blog.  Thanks for dropping by I will see you later.
Happy Stampin'
