How To Make a wonderful Card Using Gears for a New Look

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with instructions on how to make a wonderful card using gears for a new look. My favorite card sketches offer placement for flowers. To use such a sketch for a gentleman's card apply gears or stars as your go to shape. 
~ Today ~
When using a gear the shape can be punched into the base of the card. Back it with a contrasting color and the card design begins to take shape immediately. Here a 4.5"x6.5" top layer is backed by a 5"x7" contrasting under layer.
Gears work for a steampunk style as well. To add to this theme fussy cut a trellis or other wrought iron shape. If the design is overly involved cut portions with a craft knife and leave the rest.
For this card I used a tag shaped sticker and punched stars, circles, and gears.
As a final touch I added Dew Drops to the centers of the gears. They were a breeze to place using Embellie Gellie.
ScraPerfect has adhesive and tools that are very effective with these type of embellishments.
Odd shaped or heavy embellishments adhere easily with the Best Glue Ever.

It's a breeze to add drops of glue to the thin portions of the gears by attaching a No Clog Writing Cap to BGE.
.Paper, Stickers, and Dew Drops used for this card can be found at The Robin's Nest.
