Been busy creating a "book card" with a steampunk theme. A book card is a card with a cover and a kind of shadow box inside. I found the idea for this on the blog of a brilliant Swedish blogger that also does quite a few videos on Youtube. You can find out more here
I decided to put this card in for one of the challenges over at gingersnap creations. The theme there is cogs, wheels and watch parts. It's the spicy supply challenge which closes on August 7, just in case you are interested in playing. I used papers from Graphics 45 Steampunk and Renaissance collections. The gears are chipboard pieces from Imaginarium Design, a brilliant Australian company. I coloured them with distress stain in vintage photo and then used perfect pearls and some vintage photo embossing powder on them to give them the metal effect.
This is the inside
and this is the inside
and finally a side view.
