Steampunk Time


I had a really good day yesterday with the cardmaking, 12 cards and a gift bag. Feeling good now about the amount of stock I have for the weekend festival. I could do with a few more gift bags, large cards and vintage cards like this one if I have time. Hubby is off work today so we need to give the conservatory a thorough clean from top to bottom and may go out later so not much will get made today.

I love making this style of card and they sell well too. I have used Bo Bunny Timepiece paper, penny farthing rubon from America, Tim Holtz steampunk  on the edge die, clock embossing folder, DI Vintage Photo, distress tool and metal gears, Jolee's metal corner scroll and a clock charm from Wild Orchid. I used Core'dinations with the embossing folder, sanded it down and then used DI Vintage Photo.
