Glittered Gears


i would like to welcome my newest follower - Megan J of My Merry Card Corner.
Please pop over and visit her - her work is lovely.

This card is for the new challenge over at 
I used one of  Lozzy's wonderful Sepia Embossing Papers as a background.

I was inspired to do an altered gate fold by this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire. 

The top layer die cut is the Steampunk Corner die is by M/B, but used on an angle to 'fit' the die cut edge of the gate fold, which was cut using a Paper Smooches border die. 
All the edges of the paper were sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink. 

As you can see, the steampunk die was cut from a copper coloured glitter card.

The sentiment stamp was lined up using my MISTI, and  white embossed.  
I used an off cut from the gate fold for the sentiment panel.
