When I went to the craft fair last Sunday we were looking at dies at one stall and my friend was saying how she liked the cogs. I said they were a good size for cards compared with the large cogs original sizzix die. This is what my friend does make me look at something I would of past by giving it a second look and end up buying them.
I'm so glad I picked them up and though I hadn't planned to use them straight away I decided to use some gold, silver and copper paper to cut them out which means they look like metal so I could enter the Less is More challenge. Just in case the paper metal doesn't cut it the brads in the centres are metal.
The Off the Grid stamp that Nikki used at another friends Stampin Up party would have looked great on this card but I had to make do with these grungy stamps. (don't worry the Off the Grid has been ordered).
I always feel guilty about CAS this one is included the only part that took a long time was moving the cogs around till I was happy.

Nothing to feel guilty about Debby its a fabulous card! Susan x
Great card. I love cogs they add great shapes to a card.
Only you could make cogs look fabulous Debby, great artwork.
Love tg cos and such a great card for a male
You have such an eye for balance and composition, Debby...even with as clean and simple as this card is. It's a fantastic card. Hugs, Kathy
I love cogs and this composition is fabulous, I love it. I also love Audrey below, fab colours and layout x
Love it Debby....:)
Fab card Debby!!!
Fantastic card Debby and loving the cogs!!
hugs and xxx
Oh wow - thanks for this brilliant card Debby. I so wanted those cog dies - bought them and have hardly used them for want of inspiration.
This is it. I thank you again.
Hi Debby . . . well this is certainly a different style for you, but one that you have TOTALLY ROCKED. I LOVE this CAS card. The line stamp from Gorgeous Grunge goes perfectly with those brilliant cogs. I can't wait to see what you make using the Off The Grid stamp when it arrives (I have that one too!).
Could you give me details of the cog die please?
Hugs, Sarn xxx
Debby, your card is brilliant, a brilliant MALE card.
super card debby - so simple yet so stylish xx
I get entirely where you are coming from. CAS always seems like a cop out to me too and often involves a lot of faffing around getting the layout right!! However, you have done a fabulous job and it's perfect for a lad xx
I am loving this Debby! Perfect CAS card!! xx
Wow! Gorgeous card!
Great masculine card, love this! Hugs
This is a lovely CAS card Debby. The cogs look great with the grunge stamp background and make a fantastic male card. x
I totally love this card Debby, I've just added cogs to my dies wish list!
Wonderful card, a really fantastic design.
hugs Sue xx

Absolutely brilliant Debby. Simple but stunning. hugs, Carol S.xx
LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
I'm the same about CAS cards.
Fab masculine CAS design, love the size of these cogs, great metallic look!
Fabulous card...... the cogs look great and I love the grungy background. xx
Your card is great, Debby - a perfect masculine card and so different for you. I think you could make those cogs look even more like real metal by putting them face-down on a Versamark ink pad, then heat embossing them with metallic embossing powder. I bet they'd look really cool that way, too!
A brilliant cas card. Love the cogs
Another fabulous masculine card! I would have had to buy those cogs too and the background stamp is fab too.
Thanks so much
Less is More
Great card Debby, I have been looking at cog dies too...good for those difficult male cards I think also ;) Viv xx
