Steampunk Clock Celebrate Birthday by Laura Drahozal


  1. The card base is 6-1/2” by 9-1/2” folded on the side.
  2. Tape the Steampunk Clock Stencil over the Muslin cardstock. Be sure to start taping with one full strip of tape adhering the top edge of the stencil. It will act as a hinge for easy stencil removal.
  3. Use the palette knife to place Gold Embossing Paste on the edge of the Paste Spreader.
  4. Place the paste spreader on the top edge of the stencil and pull towards you, leaving the spreader on the stencil, like a squeegee and depositing paste into all of the wells of the stencil.
  5. Replace unused paste into the container.
  6. Remove the stencil, pulling the tape from the bottom and the sides and tilting the stencil up, using the top piece as a hinge. You will lastly remove that top piece with the stencil.
  7. While the paste is still wet, sprinkle the various embossing powders over the image.
  8. Heat the image with the heat tool, allowing it to bubble.
  9. Stamp the birthday stamp with Memento Ink on the Mixed Media paper.
  10. Cut the fancy frame out of the Brown Eyes card stock using the Fitted Frames A die and your manual die cut machine.
  11. Use the craft sheet, blending tool and Distress Ink to age the pieces.
  12. Assemble the card.
