Another card for men

Hi there

Here's another men's card using Crafters Companion 'Just for Men' range of dies and embossing folders.

I showed this card to a friend of mine and she has asked me to make one for her.  She is  going to America and whilst there it will be the birthday of the son of her friend.  She doesn't  know his interests or hobbies so she wants something masculine.  This seems to fit the bill. 

I made the card with black card stock   Using the Clocks embossing folder I embossed some Centura card and also some black card.  I cut out parts of the clocks from the black card and put silver gilding wax onto it.  I then placed them on top of the embossed clocks. 

Another of the Just for Men dies is a set of cog wheels in different sizes and shapes so I cut various out onto black card and also onto silver mirri.

i also used the Happy Birthday die and cut it in the black card.

I placed the cogs on to the centura embossed card and the sentiment too.  I put a couple of cogs on top of the other, just to make a different shape.

I thought this card could be used both for a man or anyone who is interested in 'steam punk'.

Thank you for looking.
