Hello folks! I've had fun playing with some of Sam Poole's fabulous Christmas designs... this time Steampunk Christmas. I have, however, managed to make a totally 'un-Steampunk' type card. This shows the versatility of these wonderful designs.
I used the polka dot mask to emboss the centura pearl cardstock layer. I stamped and embossed, with silver embossing powder, 3 of the cogs/gears from the set. I then die cut them using a circular flower die and adhered them to the card front using dimensional glue gel 'hanging' from ribbon and ribbon bows. I finished off the baubles by adding crystal glitter to the patterns and AB rhinestones to the centres. I also added a stamped and embossed '25', again from the set, and mounted it onto another little piece of card that I made to look like a present with ribbon. I distressed all the edges with pink ink... a real step away from my usual black.
I hope you have had a great weekend and are enjoying advent.
Ciao for now!
