The blend of the Sketch~N~Scrap card sketch and our sponsor, Creative Embellishments brought together a steampunk inspired birthday card. I love the look of steampunk, but admittedly haven't dabbled with it too much. So there's no time like the present!
Here is the sketch:
I embossed soem kraft cardstock using two different embossing folders and lightly inked the raised images. I used some twine as my center. But the highlight of this card is definitely the gears. Here is how they started out:
Nice, sturdy chipboard. So how did I get such richness? Super simple. Embossing powder. I chose gold, silver, bronze and black. You just rub Versamark on the embellishment and cover it with the embossing powder and heat. They turned out stunning!
I glued them together and attached them to my card. They made a beautiful focal point.
Here is the inside of the my card:
