Postcards Steampunk

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

The lovely Tracy Moss from Cardmakers Delights emailed to ask if I would be interested in using her postcards on a few card samples for her.  I did a few cards for her last year and they are gorgeous cards to use.  She knew I loved my Steam Punk and send me quite a few of these fabulous post cards.

I would highly recommend my crafty friends to visit Tracy's site as there are an amazing array of toppers from cute to vintage to steam punk.

Today's card is made using a couple of these Steam Punk postcards and I made another one for that male relative in your life.


A5 Kraft card
First layer is black card which I have matted a piece of gorgeous paper from London Market from Pink Paislee which was part of my Christmas present off Mike and Ian (Kraftyhands) which I have inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo
I have distressed around the postcards with my scissor and then inked around them before matting them at an angle onto black card.
To finish off I have added 2 charms and 6 buttons  and sentiment from my stash.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxx
