Steampunk Christmas

I recently signed up for a Secret Santa swap in the Make It Crafty Facebook Group.  I got a bit of a chuckle when my partner’s name came up, and it was one of my besties from right here in Saskatoon!! Lol.  I knew that she likes Steampunk, so off I went shopping at the Make It Crafty store!  I found the Steampunk Santa House and then the gorgeous Elizabeth J, which I merged with the house.  I wanted the background to be a subtle, old look, with miss Elizabeth “popping” in the foreground.  I went to work with my SN and Copic markers, with all this detail, the reading glasses were put on a few times!!  After coloring, I did a chalk background with some shimmering Pebbles chalks (that I completely forgot I had!), and added some sparkle to the snow.  I had a really cool idea for a sweet fancy fold for this card, however, though the image was teeny when it came to coloring, it was too large for the fold I had in mind.  I decided on a simple easel card, matting the image in a browny-green CS and some patterned paper.  I set to die cutting snowflakes, using a few different sets of snowflake dies for variety.  After laying everything out, and adding a stamped and embossed sentiment, it still needed something …. so I printed, colored, and fussy cut the Steampunk Gift digi.  The house and the gift digis came in a set, with a few other images, that saved me money, and gave even more options for future makes.  It was great fun making this card…and delivering it over coffee, rather than posting it, lol.
