Hello! Nadine here today with a couple Father’s Day cards. These would also make great masculine birthday cards too, just by changing the sentiment on them.

For the background, I used an embossing folder on brown cardstock and then rubbed some different colors of ink onto the raised areas. Then I gathered up some Gears that I liked and pressed them into some metallic ink, some in gold and some in silver. I did the same thing with the Bicycle Chain Pieces. I also lightly added some black and patina ink to each one to give them more of an aged metal look.
On the chain pieces, I added black brads to the open holes. This was a great way to use up some of the hundreds of brads that I have had laying around forever. Then I attached all the pieces to the front of each card and added an embossed stamped sentiment to match each card.

Here is the silver card…

and here is the gold one…

Which one is your favorite?

Thank you so much for visiting, see you next time!
