A Steampunk Card!

Today I'm sharing my first card made with my new Steampunk CD!
I can't believe I didn't have chance to get crafty with this CD until just 2 days ago but now I'm hooked! so there will be lots more projects coming up next week :o)

For this card I used the grey circles backing paper, the pre-coloured digi stamp of the Steampunk Gentleman, a sentiment, a bingo card and the Hot Air Balloon pre-coloured digi stamp (everything is on the CD). I layered everything together with 3D foam for lots of dimension, I've just noticed that I didn't round the corners on the backing paper though, most unlike me! I love the colours on this and its great for mens cards and scrapbook pages. (Just to let you know, if you want to get the Steampunk CD this weekend, there is a 10% discount for this weekend only, just click here and use the code MARCH2012 at the checkout!)

For those of you that have asked, I print everything onto Rymans bleedproof paper, its nice and smooth for printing out backing papers, you can use your markers onto it without it bleeding and its thick enough to make all the embellishments etc... nice and sturdy so you can shape the paper, fold it and layer it without it buckling in like thinner printer paper would do. There are other types of card that have been mentioned to me which I believe are similar but I've not had chance to try them yet - I'll let you know when I do! I usually print everything off and cut out when I have some free time (when I'm tucked up watching a film with B usually) and then everything is ready to go when I want to use it.

Today has been a busy one juggling lots of design work and other projects and trying to get on top of my emails - one day I will catch up completely! This weekend I have some magazine commissions to do, including one for an international magazine - ooooooooooh! but I am going to try and have at least one afternoon off, I'm not sure whether to use it to curl up quietly with a library book or shoot zombies on my xbox, hmmmm....

Have a lovely weekend!
