Birthday Card - Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante

Ya know good and well I got the layout for this card from Pinterest, as I said before I am still trying to get back in the swing of crafting. It's amazing how taking some time way from daily crafting zaps the creativity out of a person.

Supplies Used:
Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante
Various Cardstock
Make The Cut
Stampin Up Paper Piercing pattern
Stampin Up Marker
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Hallmark Card Studio 

The Time Flies and the gear was from a file I downloaded from Pazzles, at least I think. I can't even remember now to tell ya the truth! There were more gears in the file but I just wanted one for this card so the beauty of the paper could still shine through. I wish I had made my oval a little smaller so the text print paper would have shown more, live and learn...live and learn!

The paper piercing is something I am starting to do more of. I use to try and do it but my holes were never turned out perfect like they do with the Stampin Up paper piercing pattern things. It always seems like it is going to take a long time to do the paper piercing but it really goes quickly.

I am also getting more into double matting my cards as I think it adds some interest, it wastes paper a bit but it does look nice!

  5. I love serious/funny cards ... and yours are the best!

  6. Really like the layering. The gear turned out great.
    Love Graphic 45 papers.

  7. Time flies at your age...ha ha, very good.
    Great card and I am all for layering. The more layering the better is my philosophy. Wow that was a big word for 7:30 in the AM.
    Keep 'em coming!
