WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the strips of See A Silhouette Designer Paper on the front of the Rich Razzleberry card to figure out the placement and spacing. Then, adhere them in place one at a time using SNAIL Adhesive.
Pick out the large group of gears die from the Garage Gears Dies. Put the die on top of the Night of Navy rectangle on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and/or paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Mount the grease stain image from the Geared Up Garage Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly all over the white rectangle. Re-ink the stamp every so often. Let the image go off the edges and let it overlap itself sometimes.
Adhere the gears cut out to the back of the stamped white rectangle so the gears peek out a bit along the long left edge.
Adhere the gears and stamped white rectangle to the front of the card so the white rectangle is centered up and down and the left edge of the gears just touches the left edge of the card front.
Mount the car image from the Geared Up Garage Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the large Rich Razzleberry rectangle.
Pick out the car die from the Garage Gears Dies. Put it on top of the stamped car image on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the car image is centered. Run through the tool.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the car cut out to the card front so it is centered side to side on the stamped white rectangle and overlaps the gap between the bottom two strips of designer paper.
Mount the “You're a Classic” sentiment from the Geared Up Garage Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the smaller rectangle of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the words and cut them apart.
Adhere the cut out "You're" and "Classic" words flat to the top of the stamped white rectangle and angles so they hang over the left and right edges a bit. Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the cut out "a" word in between the other two words so it overlaps them both a bit.
Cut a 4” piece of 3/8" Denim Ribbon.
Pick out a key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.
Slide the metal element onto the center of the ribbon and tie a half knot in the ribbon. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon and key element to the front of the card in the lower right corner.
