Geared Up Garage – Father’s Day Treat

It is still a few weeks before Father’s Day – but if we want to be ready we really need to start now.  Today I am sharing a decorated gift box that would take a number of small gifts, although I have filled mine with Hershey’s nuggets as I know my dear ol’ Pops would have really appreciated chocolate!

The Classic Garage Suite is perfect for this gift box, it has the wonderful Classic Garage DSP, some Metallic Ribbon to go along with the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set with coordinating Garage Gears Thinlets Dies (still available at a 10% discount bundle price until end of May!)

Triple Layer Stamping ~ Video Tutorial

I do love a good technique! I know Triple Layer Stampin’ has been around for a while but it is always good to revisit and bring it up to date with our current stamp sets and colors.

I have chosen the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set for this card – it has lots of different images that work very well with this technique, and paired it with Itty Bitty Birthday Wishes Stamp Set for my greeting.  I am also thinking that it would make a great card for the fellas in our lives, birthday, graduation or even Father’s Day!
