Fathers Day

Father's day is fast approaching and at Creative Cutting Challenge we want to give you a bit of inspiration and a challenge to show us what you are doing for Dad this year.
I had the pleasure of using Creative Pointe's Gear Frame so many dad's out there are into cars or motorbikes...  My Dad was a mechanic for many many years now he just tinkers :)
And of course his other passion would be vintage cars and Visible Image had this great stamp I just had to use.
I started with a piece of Recollections cardstock then added some vellum to mask it a bit.
I used a Dorcy gears embossing folder on CTMH Slate paper and gave it just a little bit of heat embossing with silver and distressed linen. My eCraft cut out that great frame from Creative Point and I heat embossed it giving it all kinds of texture.  I then cut out some black gears just to add a little more dimension. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping - Guy Sentiments and of course the vintage car from Visible image is embossed on a piece of Vellum. The twine and metal charm are from my stash.  Hope you enjoy.
