Leslie Rahye's Very Merry Steampunk Holiday BLOG HOP!

 Hi Everyone!
     Michelle here with another fun Steampunk blog hop hosted by Leslie Rahye!
The theme is Christmas! Yea!
I hope you will enjoy my tutorial, then visit the rest of the Steampunk creations.
 
 For my card, I decided to go traditional Steampunk. I trimmed some holiday paper by Prima to fit a folded card and gilded the edges with a gold leafing pen.


 Next, I cut a rectangle of some pretty green cardstock to fit inside the card. This would be the tree. I barely folded it in half, just a pinch at the top, then with a pen and ruler, drew a line from the pinched center to each corner. Thus making the perfect tree.
 I ran the tree through my Big Shot with a gears embossing folder by Couture Creations.
I used the gold leafing pen to highlight the raised gears design.
 I glued some Red and Gold dusted Dew drops from The Robins Nest 
in and around the gears.

 I edged the tree with the gold leafing pen and placed it on the card with double layers of foam tape.

I finished the card with some clocks and gears washi tape for the tree trunk.
Ta Da!
Don't you just love it? So easy right?
I hope you have a very Happy Holiday and enjoy the blog hop!


(When you are done with the hop, feel free to come back here and see some more Steampunk inspiration!)

Just charming! I love the orderliness and almost OCD neatness on this steampunk piece. I also am a fan of things that line up straight and everything has a place!
Thanks for sharing.

Happy holidays!
