ID: MC July 17 - Easel Embossed Gears - ECD Happy Birthday Small - I Dwell In Possibility card
size: 7"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: July 24, 2017

Crafter's Companion is coming out with 3D embossing folders, and then I remembered Spellbinders did that several years ago... so I resurrected the 2 folders I have. This is the other one. You can see the shell one HERE

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Happy Birthday Small" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design

("I Dwell In Possibility" ); 


Scored and folded my dark brown cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece same size as front and adhered. 

I had a watercolor painting I really wasn't happy with done on Arches 140# HP watercolor paper, so I decided it was time to cut it up... applied Bob Ross "Black Gesso" thinly over it. dried and ran through my machine with Spellbinders 3D M'Bossibilites  "Creative Cogs". Dried. Rubbed Old Island Metallic Rub Ons  in gold and silver all over with my finger. Trimmed down and adhered to front.

Die cut the various gears (Tim Holtz Bigz die "Gadget Gears" and thinlits "Gearhead" 22 pce  set) from white cardstock. Painted and embossed using Distress Dabber "Tarnished Bronze" and some "Black Soot" Embossed using Emerald Creek "Verdisgris" embossing powder sparingly. Then just added some of the black paint and wiped with a paper towel. For the smaller dies I just used the bronze and the black. 


Adhered the medium sized gear to the front using 3D foam tape. The other 2 gears, partially adhered to floor to use as my stopper.

Stamped the quote using Versafine "Toffee'" and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday" from DoCraft Gold Mirror cardstock. (ps it cuts like butter...)
