Here we are on the 15th of March with a new challenge at A Tiny Craft (ATC) Challenge ~~ Masculine. I'm finding masculine atcs are as much trouble as full sized cards but after a few mind changes I finally settled on a NBUS not only one but two for my ATCs. To join in the fun (and give me lots of ideas for anything masculine) you can make cards, 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch rectangle used vertical or horizontal or you can make 2 1/2 inch coins. Here is my offering for the challenge I hope it inspires you.

Make it Masculine!!
In searching for something I spotted this great antique card die, sorry no name on it, and in the "25th hour" I went with it. I had just finished another card and found the background paper in the same Dollarama pack I had used for a floral card. The gears are another item that has been in my die box for a few years just waiting for a use, I found some matte silver cardstock in my scrap box to cut them from.
Here is a close up of a single card, I cut two of each cars out of 110 lb black cardstock to glue them together with acetate for the windows, then they are elevated with dimensional strips. The gears are flat attached. I added think silver sticker lines to the edge of each of the cards.
Here is a side view of the ATC to show the elevation.
Here is something I have had for probably 15 years and not used much it was always tucked away but when I saw all the tiny holes in the die that had to be poked out I remembered it. I might be the only one that is very excited about it too. Here it is.
It is from Sizzix and for use with intricate dies and as you see there are a lot of things to poke out with this die and I was cutting 8.
I'm entering this in:
ATCs around the World ~~ #87 Everything Goes
NBUS ~~ #36 (not just one but two nbus)
