All Geared Up - Shopping Our Stash

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This week, at Shopping Our Stash,  the challenge is to use Two Types of Embossing!  My initial thought was to emboss strips and do a basket weave, but I was short on time and had to come up with something that could be easily and quickly done!

I decided to do Dry Embossing and a Wet Embossing.
The Gold Gears were cut from Kraft paper and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder

The burlap and card stock used to make the banners, were  leftovers from a previous project  I had paper clipped them the to black card stock scrap..  I When I grabbed the black card stock to use as a layer, I noticed how well they worked together and decided to make banners. The printed burlap is probably the elevating element.

I never do well with Man Cards, but this turned out pretty nice and I wasn't really thinking of a man card when I was working on it.  This project really put itself together because all these pieces were lying on my very untidy drafting table!
