Steam Punk style masculine card, featuring gold embossing …

Hi and welcome to my blog. I was inspired by the latest challenge at the Male Room Challenge blog to make this Steam Punk style masculine card …

Steam-Punk-featuring-gold-embossing

On our recent holiday in the Lakes, I found some great masculine style stamps and papers in a craft store in Kendal. Masculine cards can be difficult to do, but I couldn’t wait to get home and get creating with my new stash. I love the Steam Punk style – it’s interesting and I can add lots of embellishments to my heart’s content!

Although it’s hard to tell from the photos, I added clear embossing to the watch faces and the binoculars to give them a glassy look…

The gold embossed cogs were made by first heat embossing a piece of very vanilla cardstock with gold embossing powder, then die cutting several sizes of cogs to add as accents.

Lots of sponging, distressing and curling of edges on the card – I’m really happy with how it turned out.

I’m entering my card at The Male Room Challenge #7
