I Did Steampunk!

I know right?! Who would have thought it! Grins.

And you know something? It wasn’t actually as hard as I imagined it would be. And it was great fun to do too! Smiles.

Everything (and I do mean everything) on this card is available at That Craft Place.

The card, the paper, the distress inks, the wood shapes, the Copics. Everything.

This is how it looks when the card is closed.

The ONLY thing that is from elsewhere are my Stitched Rectangle Dies. They are By DIEzyne and are from CC Designs.
