SCRAP FX Design Team Faux Metal Steampunk Birthday card

Hi There 
Wanted to share this huge card I made for my son's recent 18th Birthday. 
It was used for his friends to write messages to him on the night of his party!
Firstly we are happy to have survived our 3rd child's 18th celebration
with only a few minor mishaps!

The 'card' base is recycled from heavy white card packaging from my work 
(I am a Theatre Nurse, we are always trying to repurpose or recycle where we can)
It measures 40 x 26.5 cm, with the front cover slightly smaller than the back.

I made a feature of this by applying copper adhesive metal to the edge of the back page 
pre embossed with a Tim Holtz Texture fade.

The front page was covered with silver adhesive metal sheets 
embossed with Tim Holtz Texture fades through my Big shot machine.
A black distress paint dabber was rubbed over surface then buffed off 
bringing out the embossed texture.

A happy accident occurred when I ran some sheets through the 'gears' 
embossing folder first, then through the 'riveted' folder.  
This flattened out the gears pattern leaving a really cool extra texture 
that was highlighted by the paint layer.  As you can see above.

Huge Grunge board letters from Tim Holtz & chipboard gears & chains from SCRAP FX 
coloured with black & copper metallic paint dabbers
& applied with 3D matte gel medium.

The back of the card was covered with a distress patterned cardstock to suit the theme.

I love making keepsakes out of items that would otherwise be thrown away.

Till next time...Keep Creating!        Cheers      Deb
