Today's card is a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base. I used some pattern paper from American Crafts Metropolitan paper pad for my background.


My card today uses the Stampin' Up Extreme Snowboard stamp as the main image. After stamping my image I used a circle die to cut it out.  The large cog behind my stamped image is from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge.

I use the Stampin' Up Extra Large Double punch to punch the cogs up and I have a couple of them mounted on pop up dots for some dimension.  For the inside I added a piece of the pattern paper and another cog.  To make my cogs solid in the center I punched a circle and mounted the cog on top of the circle.

Here is my blog candy and the winner will be chosen on Monday.
