Blow Your Horn

I keep coming back to the Creative Cogs Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ folder for Masculine cards - it seriously does not get much easier than this.


I have run it through the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine  - the 3D M-Bossabilities
use a different 'sandwich' due to their thickness.  I have used the Grand Raspberry Plate
 and the Pink plate - without the brown mat.

I have gold embossed some of the embossed cogs using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaMark™ Watermark Ink and IMAGINECrafts® Embossing Powder™ in Gold.  Finishing off my using some IMAGINECrafts® Ink Droppers™.  I did not have to use any inks as my daubers are usually 'fully loaded' and there was enough on them.

The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets printed sheet and the background paper is by KandCompany.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes

The Crazy Challenge - Without Stamps
 Lia Stampz Challenge - Birthdays
