Steampunk at Sugar Creek Hollow
This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we are challenging you to make STEAMPUNK cards or other paper-crafted projects. This theme is perfect for the vintage or shabby chic style we require.
The timing of this challenge was great for me since I had a birthday card to make for my niece's husband and Steampunk works well for a guy. I do sometimes struggle with making masculine cards (I wish they loved lace, flowers and pearls like I do) so any assistance I can get is always appreciated.
I dug out some Tim Holtz Grunge Paper to make the gears with. I had bought it over a year ago but never used it. I cut it with my Cricut and it was like cutting butter so you can bet I will be using it again soon. The images were all freebies thanks to the generosity of The Graphics Fairy.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
ATCs & Cards With Attitude - Steampunk/Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
