Flowers...in Masculine?

Well, the Lil' Inker Designs new release blog hop is over but I have so many other projects to share with you that I thought I'd get started now.  Right.  Now.  :)

Jen Carter Groovy Gears

This release had a lot of C.U.T.E. feminine type products in it, but there was one particular item that I looked at and thought, "Hey!  This could work for a masculine card too!"  And, get this, it was a flower die!  It looked like it could double as a gear to me!  So, I put my little die and masculine-like papers to work and came up with this little card.  Does it work?  I just don't have many masculine sets, they aren't quite as fun to purchase, you know?  I love that I have a backup!

The sentiment was embossed in black so there are some gaps since I impressed the background design on the cardstock first.  I LOVE that sentiment though!  So fun! And, as far as the gears go, you could totally punch circles in the centers or use them as is, but I used some old accessories I had lying around to embellish them.

Here's the die I used for the gears:


Thanks for taking a look and stopping by!

  1. So smart!!! I think it looks just like a gear...and paired with the very cool sentiment...such a great masculine card...in different colors it would be just a neat for a trendy female card too! Great job with this month's release...I really enjoyed it all.
