Even though the Geared Up Garage stamp set is carrying over, I realized I had not used it often and especially had not used the accessories.  So I had to fix that little issue and made a card that is quick, cute, and masculine.



I love this car as a masculine card, but it could very well be a female card with her favorite car color.

For this one I began with Crumb Cake card stock, Layered Soft Suede that I embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  And then topped it with Very Vanilla card stock.

The Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder is a new one and is Super!  It looks like a furniture fabric to me.  Or a more deeply embossed version of the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I think it will join the Subtle Folder for a “perfect for any card” type go to background.

The car is stamped in Soft Suede with Sahara Sand as the “exhaust” !  When I first saw that stamp and tried to figure out what to do with it, that is what I saw.  I hope I am not the only one who sees exhaust or dust coming from the back of the car.

For the sentiment, I stamped it in Soft Suede as well.  Both layers are cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. To add the little Key, I used a 10″ piece of Linen Thread.  I placed the thread centered over the front of the sentiment and went around back and then back to the front with each end.  I tied a knot, added the key on one of the strings, and tied another knot.  I do love how that little key makes a big different on the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great weekend.  I look forward to sharing more projects with you next week.

Below are links to the two Retiring or Last Chance Lists.  Keep in mind, a Bundle may retire, but the stamp set and dies or punch can still carry over.  So look for the individual item.  Also, all of the Stampin’ Blends are not retiring.  It is only that in the new catalog, they will be sold in the combo pack only.  The only ones retiring are the 2018-2020 In Color ones.
