Steampunk Birthday Card

Hi Bloggers,

I don't know about you, but I struggle to find the right images for teenage boy cards.
I finally decided on a Steampunk theme (as I love it anyway) when I came across a fantastic skull stamp.

The background "frame" was made using a cogs and gears border stamp with Black Soot Distress Ink.

The smaller background was made using a crackle stamp and Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

The large cog frame and smaller cogs were all designed on my Gypsy and cut on my Cricut. Some have also been sprayed with silver mica.

Here's a close-up of the fab skull stamp.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Pam 'I'm Elaine, well I am into cogs, clocks trains and some things steam punk , I like this card , love the frame with the cogs. Well done, not sure if I would use the skull with my cards too scary for me, but it does look ( jaw droppingly... ) striking !!.
    The silver mica really sets it off.
    Nice one
