(2020 c086) Steampunk Slimline

Steampunk Birthday card.  First I stamped the rullers and stitches on the beige cardstock with Orange Blossom Ranger Archival Ink using Tim Holtz Seamless Experience CSS30225 stampset (it appears to have been discontinued).  I then stamped with black using the Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints Strip Industrial THMB009 .   This backgound was then dry embossed with Tim Holtz Mechanics 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder 662715.   First I swiped  Versamark Ink   across the impressing side of the folder before running through my Sizzix Big ShotThen I heat embossed with Carnelian Stampendous Pearluster Embossing Powder

The panels were cut with Mama Elephant Slim Window Dressings Creative Cuts then for the rusty orange base I just trimmed off the scallops.

The charm was made with Shrink Film as described below and there is a photo of all the  charms I created: stamped them on SHRINK FILM by Grafix with Jet Black Stazon Ink and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 4 Etched Dies,  Nestabilities Labels 14,   Spellbinders Labels One Etched Dies,   Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight Etched Dies.  Then I followed manufacture’s directions to heat and shrink.  For the shaker frame I used Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Vintage Cabinet Card Shapers Bigz Altertations 657217.  See the close-up photo of the shrunk blueprint images inside the shaker.

The beetle was cut with Sizzix Tim Holtz Geo Insects 664180.  On the inside i added Happy Birthday from Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts Dies LF1172
