Hello! Nadine here today with a slimline steampunk masculine birthday card. Since slimline cards seem to be a new rage, I thought I would make one using some chipboard. I think I have more fun creating masculine cards than I do girly type cards.

I started with a slimline card base of 8.5″ x 3.5″ using kraft cardstock. Then I cut a piece of black cardstock to 8.25″ x 3.25″ and adhered it to the card base. Next, I embossed some Rinea Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper using a Sizzix 3D Embossing Folder cut into 3 sections and adhered to the card base. Lightly rubbed on some black gesso to help the embossed areas to stand out better.

I used the Gear Set 2 Medium and used several different colors of embossing powder on them in blues, greens, and gold then adhered them onto the top and bottom silver square. Over the gears, I used the Happy Birthday from the Small Sentiment Words Set and embossed them with silver embossing powder.

For the center square, I used one of the Steampunk Timepieces and embossed them with embossing powder the same as I did with the gears. The hands of the clock I embossed using silver.

Thank you so much for visiting, see you next time!
