I made both cards using the same design but chose two different images:
The decoupaged images, paper and sentiments are all from the CD, the gears have been cut using a Tim Holtz die and the silver panel was embossed with a Creative Expressions Metal Effect Mask, the metal brads were from my stash.
There were two smaller images on the decoupage sheets, so I cut them out and used them to decorate the inside of the cards.:
My husband and youngest son, who also has learning difficulties, are going to the joint birthday part tonight so I will find out if they liked their cards.
I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
Stamp n Doodle - Embossing
CRAFT Challenge 148 - Things with Wheels
CES Challenge 79 - No Girls Allowed!
Pile It On Challenge 13 - For/From a Man
Love to Create Challenge 8 - Masculine
2 Sisters Challenge 85 - Birthday Fun

Thank you for joining me this evening, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
