LIM: week 104 - Sketch and cogs

For Christmas I had my craft room stocked, many thanks to my other half. Some dies and a superb large pack of Core'dinations Sugar and Spice - for those of you who've not seen this, it is card which you can sand to reveal a different colour core.

On Friday it was my nephew's birthday - Happy Birthday Wil. I have been playing with embossing on Core'dinations card, sanding it and spraying it with Radiant Shimmer (to give the slightly metallic grunge effect), in order to make a suitable card for him. This is something I made with the left overs (because offcuts of card, can never go to waste, can they?) which is made to loosely fit with the LIM Sketch.

The cogs are the X-cut cogs, and are fun - I've cut them out in two coordinating colours and swapped the centres.  I've had real trouble extracting the card from them when using card, but they work a treat with this funky foam - which I bought years ago in a multitude of different colours when I was a Brownie Guider and my daughters were small enough to enjoy cutting and sticking.


  1. Great card for a guy too!


  2. Fab guy all the different shaped cogs!

  3. Great use of offcuts, especially the foam! You should also link up at the Playground where we all use up our scraps every week.


  4. Cool cogs and gears! Nice, nice card.

  5. Brilliant card, love the colours you've used.

  6. great idea anna... would have look great at the bottom of the card too!!

  7. This is a super card for a chap...the band should have been a little lower to comply with the terms of this week's challenge, but it does look good where it is too.
    Thanks so much
