Steampunk Happy Birthday

Good evening all

I’m popping by with a quick blog post today as The Male Room Challenge have a Steampunk theme to their challenge #147 and it reminded me of a card I made at the end of last year but in the flurry of Christmas cards I forgot to post to the blog. 

Firstly I matt a piece of dark grey card onto the card front slightly smaller then the card base. I then took a piece of light grey card and ran it through the embossing folder. After I embossed it I ran a grey ink pad lightly over it to bring out the pattern and adhered it to the card front at an angle cutting off any overhang. I die cut a few cogs and the letters to spell ‘dad’, covered them in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold, silver and copper Wow! powders. Once I had a layout I was happy with I stuck them to the card front, stamped and heat embossed a sentiment and cut it into a banner shape. I adhered the sentiment strip with foam pads.

I am also entering this into the Uniko Birthday linky party as they are celebrating a fabulous 9 years this month. Happy birthday Uniko! 🎉

Thanks for stopping by
