Another Steampunk Card

Good Morning Dear Friends

Another steampunk card today - perfect for a guy; these stamps from Papermania's Chronology Collection really lend themselves to masculine cards.  I have used 3 different embossing folders on this card, 2 of them; the clocks and cogs are from Darice and the other one comes from Couture Creations: Uber.  Well I'm not sure what 'uber' means but apparently in German it means 'over', 'above' or 'across'  so I think that fits in with the style of the embossing folder which looks like a constellations map with compasses.   It is a really useful folder as you can use it on corners or small parts of your card and it looks good.  Here's a pic of it:

Emboss Folder A2 Uber Fine Design Collection

 The background was stamped with Papermania's curiosities stamp as was the cog in the corner of the card.
I used some distress inks: stormy sky and vintage photo.  I layered the card for dimension and added some embellishments.  a simple card but I think the embossing gives a lot of depth and interest.  

Hope you have a lovely creative day and hope to post again soon.
