My First Steampunk!

Here's a card that I've made today, using a Kanban Steampunk topper and my new spellbinders dies. This was one of those cards that I've really enjoyed doing, although I really should have been out in the garden weeding, but when you've got some new craft stash it's difficult to resist - isn't it?????

  6. Hi Trudy,
    Your card is just fab ... I especially love the die set and the flourishes used to cut the design you have used on this card!! I haven't see these before ... they work really well with this theme!
    Well done,
    Pauline xxx

    1. Hi Pauline, thank you for your comments, the dies I used for the topper was the large square, from the Lace Doily Motifs set. Cut two of them and mounted the topper as shown. I was lucky that the topper was just the right size (doesn't always happen that easy lol)
