For Monday, Labor Day in the U.S., I made cards that feature these gear dies from Memory Box:
- top left: DELUXE GEAR SET No. 98962
- bottom left: ANTIQUE GEAR SET No. 98966
- right: GEAR ASSEMBLY No. 98964
I used cardstock to cut out the dies in rust, silver, shiny black, copper, and brass. You can see on several cards how well the gears layer on top of one another.
I used Kraft, Parchment, and Graphite Memory Box notecards as well as one made from Latte Gingham Memory Box paper. I cut letters from black and gray cardstocks using Typewriter Upper Alphabet die No. 98367.
I know my friends who teach school are gearing up for the new year. Some start with students on Tuesday and some began classes early last week. Now that I think about it, these would make good cards to send to them with a note about gearing up for a successful year. These would also make great guy cards.
