Masculine card using die cut soda cans

Stop recycling soda cans! You need those soda cans for your crafts!

Here's a masculine card I made using distress ink and die cut soda cans. The front is made using a distress tool with a foam pad to pick up distress ink from a distress ink pad and them blend it onto the card front. The embossing causes the higher areas to naturally pick up more color.

The gears are die cut from aluminum soda cans using Spellbinders dies. Aluminum is a much softer metal than steel so any steel tool will easily cut it without damage. This is why knife manufacturers like to cut up soda cans and then cut up something delicate like a tomatoes.

Here's the card:

As always, click on the images for full directions including the stamps used and paper sizes.
