I was really challenged to make this project with Steampunk Spells, as cards are not something I typically create.

 My approach here was to try and achieve dimension with collage and then finish with heavy metal elements.

On the inside of the card I really used my love for collage to decorate.

 Elements were cut from several different papers with the time theme, and then I layered away. 

Of course lots of metal embellishments were added along the way.

 I used the card stock banners in an unusual way by having them act as hinges for an additional flap on the cover.

I love the heaviness of this sturdy hinged card.  

It was really fun to step outside the box and make something that I usually don't.  I hope you are inspired to try something new as well!




  1. I'm glad you "stepped out" as you really created a masterpiece! I would like to make a 2 page book using your technique but need to figure out how to make hinges work.

  2. I do wish you would tell me where you get the boxes you work with!

  3. Just curious...what size envelope did you use for the steampunk card? Or did you use a box of some kind? I love it!

  4. How about a tutorial on how to make this card and it's envelope or enclosure? Also, where did you get the supplies from? Alpha Stamps?
