Steampunk Inspired Hello Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I’m dropping in with a very Steampunk inspired greeting card and a Snapguide Tutorial so you can see the steps I took to create this project.  First the finished project….

Hello Steampunk Greeting Card GSL BoBunny 1

I had so much fun creating this card that was inspired by the Chain & Gear Frame.  And with just a quick coat of gold paint and white gel pen it coordinates perfectly with the patterned papers from BoBunny’s Somewhere In Time.

I used the frame to create a nice focal point with the sticker and die cut sentiment.

This card is finished inside with coordinating papers.

Matching flowers and simple but still pretty burlap bow with twine to anchor the corner.

Finishing the Chain Link Panel in white helps to add a nice graphic impression and works well between the busy patterned layers. The gear on the frame were finished in white as well.

Adding spacers between the layers really adds a lot of dimension and gives this project a nice weight.

Please enjoy this Snapguide tutorial I’ve prepared so you can see the steps to creating this project…

  1. I normally would not use flowers to embellish a card for a guy, but this card front works for me! Love the use of the center stitch burlap…very masculine choice. Love the use of gears and the look of the chain link wires really grabs my eyes. Thanks for the Snapguide…very easy to follow. Nice job!
