Thinking of You - AHSC #213

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #213. Join this have until Sunday, May 28th to enter your project.

The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday, so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge...and stop by every Monday for new sketches. Don't wait for the DT post to create your us up with your artwork. 

Wow, this seems like an easy sketch...but many things went through my mind...why not gears/sprockets for a masculine card.  

On the Cuttlebug cut two of the large sprockets on the bottom corner of an A2 size of cardstock.  Placed the balance of the sprockets randomly on the same A2 cardstock and using the foam plate ran through the Cuttlebug for embossing the sprockets, repeated a couple of the sprockets to fill in background.  Swiped goldrush and chocolate inks across the full card. Cut one more small sprocket for the sprockets in the bottom corner.  

The two corner sprockets were adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape, and the largest sprocket and the background glued directly to black cardstock.   Went to Cricut to see what they had for sentiments and found a freebie of Thinking of You with sprockets around it...exactly what I wanted.  

For the Inside of the card, my first couple experiments for the corner sprocket was just one of the larger ones so swiped these with inks and used on the inside of my card...they looked so much nicer on the card then in my wastebasket.
