Steampunk Masculine Card

I've been a bit quiet lately - I was totally swamped with work so no time to play :-(   Things are a bit more "normal" for now so I am back to my crafty distractions and still finishing up several card orders I received for a charity sale.

This is one of those cards - the buyer requested cards with no sentiment and a mix of masculine and feminine.  I chose this for one of the masculine cards but to be honest, it's cool enough for anyone!

The Layout is based on Mojo Monday # 251.  The gears is from a free cutting file over at the Free SVG Blog cut on two layers of kraft cardstock and then inked up and glimmer misted to try to get more of a metallic look.  There's so many layers going on here that it was perfect for the Hiding in My Craft Room challenge #55 - Layers.


  1. Like the layers & texture for this card. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I go to the JoAnns & Michaels in Frisco on Preston sometimes. Perhaps we could meet up there or somewhere in between.

    1. My ho9mes away from home :-) Along with Hobby Lobby, of course! Did you know there is a brand new scrapbook store that just opened in McKinney?

      Every Last Scrap LLC
      3751 Stonebridge Dr #600, McKinney, TX 75070

      Great selection of a lot of different brands that you can't get at the big box places. They also do a lot of workshops, classes, make and takes, etc.

  2. Such a fabulous masculine card - and love those papers. TFS

  3. I love those papers and the gears are too, too cool! Great interpretation of the sketch!
