Steam ~ punk

Hello everyone,

Today I have been to the Papetiere paper mill shop in Aberdeen   http://thepapeterie.com/
.......Oh! my goodness, I could have spent so much more money that I did!!!!  However, restraint was the order of the day today.  I did buy papers, ribbons, a spellbinders shapeabilities set of crosses for easter etc a few peel-off and some kanban card, so I am going to be busy.

I thought i would share one of the two steam~punk cards I made this week:

So here we are then.  I used a very thick matt red base card onto which I glued some gold fibre paper.  On top of the gold fibre paper I put the textured muted rose paper over the top of which I put red card that had been embossed.  I then glued the image onto that and wrapped red ribbon around it making a bow (pretty much basic one) and tucked the ends of the bow back around the whole thing and stuck it down at the back.  

Then I put black ribbon around the card about a quarter the way down and placed the image over the top , sticking it down with double sided sticky fixers.  I used peel-offs for the Happy Birthday greeting on the top right hand side of the image.  I finished it all off with some peel-off dots and  flowers, and pearls.

All images I print are done using a Kodak printer with kodak ink and kodak premium photographic paper.

Size:  A5 (8 and 1/4" tall x 5 and 3/4" wide)

Red card:  Craft Creations
Papers:  a gift from someone in a swap.

I hope you have enjoyed today as much as I have.

  1. Just love this card Annie! I love all the textures, the mixture of 'prettiness' with the steampunk. Fabulous! x

    I think I like steampunk designs now.......I wasn't sure at first but it is growing on me xx
