Hi Bloggers,

Today's card has a bit of a messy background but I think it suits the card.

I stamped the background with the Creative Expressions A6 Clocks Stamp and the Creative Expressions A6 Scattered Words stamp (both designed by Sam Poole) using Jet Black Archival. I dried it a little with my heat gun and then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I passed it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Mechanical Handbags Stamp Set (also designed by Sam) onto black card using Perfect Medium. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer True White embossing powder and heat set it. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Seventeen.

I stamped the sentiment from the handbags stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing Powder.

I wrapped some American Seam Binding in Chalk White around the background and the first black mat layer. I then tied a bow with 3 lengths of the same ribbon and added it as shown.

I cut a cog from black card using the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets. I stamped a cog from the handbags stamp set on to black card using Perfect Medium and embossed with the True White. I cut it out and glued it on top of the die cut cog. I added a Black Glass Glintz to the centre and added this to my bow. I finished off with a couple of Creative Expressions Black Decorative Stick Pins.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
