Cogs and Gears - Craft Barn Weekly Challenge
Whilst browsing Pinterest recently I found this card and as I needed to make another masculine card I decided to create my own version. Is that a case or a cardlift? I'm never too sure.
The background was made by running the edge of an old credit card into some ink. The card has a hammered finish which helped give the lines a slightly grungy look. I then cut some gears from an X cut set in gold, silver and copper. What's the difference between a cog and a gear? Apparently cogs are the teeth of a gear. If it's a gear run by some sort of belt (like a cycle chain) it's called a sprocket. Who knew cardmaking could be so educational? Having arranged them to my satisfaction I stuck them down and added matching brads. The text is from a Winnie & Walter set.
I am entering this as my second entry into the Craft Barn weekly challenge entitled 'for the man in your life'.
