Just a quick post so that I can play along at Operation Write Home: Masculine Thinking of You I pulled out and dusted of a stamp set that included gears. After I stamped the gears I cut out the spaces between each one so I could mount them separately. The black background paper is dry embossed with a diamond plate folder. (Like the diamond plating you see on truck bumpers and tool boxes)
I kept it all very clean and simple cuz real men don’t like fluff. But I couldn’t resist adding one tiny little bit of bling in the center of the largest gear.
Why not create a manly “Thinking of You” card and link it to the OWH blog. There are no winners or losers in the blog challenge. They just want you to create cards for them to mail to our troops in the field. I send batches of 20-40 cards a couple of times per year.

I will be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes This one has a prize and the challenge is open until late night next Tuesday.
Mo this is a fabulous guy card. I always like the diamond plate embossing for a masculine card. Great job with this one.
Great masculine design, Mo! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
Wow, so cool, really love all the effort to cut out the gears! Great dude card! TFS!
