Father's Day Card - Steam Punk Exploding Box

I knew I wanted to attempt another Steam Punk card and thought it would be great for Father's Day, but as usual I wanted something a bit different, and thought I'd have a go at an exploding box, as I'd never made one before. Loved making it, so much so I will definitely be making one again....
Satin Mirri card - pewter and copper
Embossing Folders - Cuttlebug- Diamond Plate and Clockworks.
Wooden Airplane and cogs are from Cog 'O' Two
Silhouette was hand cut from a picture sourced from the internet.
Papers are from - Prima Marketing Craftsman Collection "Mechanic" and Basic Grey Sugar Rush Collection. (The basic Grey paper was stamped by me)
And instead of a poem or such as a sentiment, I used the memories I have of my Dad when I was a child.
Take care and keep smiling

Wedding Book Card

I don't make cards to sell, but now and again I will make a special card if asked for by a friend. And every time I say that's the last one, which is what I said about the hippy card, but I got asked again, so here it is ...
Hand cut filigree

 Paper - K & Company - Classic Bailey, Stripes, Ivory small floral, apart from the spine which was piece of paper I found in my "scrap" box.
Heart dies - Spellbinders Nestabilities. Filigree was hand cut, the pattern sourced from the internet.
Clasp - Tim Holtz Grunge paper inked with his Antique linen ink pad, hand stitched. The clasp is a Cameo button (shank removed) with Basic Grey magnetic snaps.
Sentiments - front and inside of card were computer generated, with a lace background sourced from the internet and printed on hessian textured card.
Wedding photos - sourced form Pinterest, and printed on pearl finished photo paper.

Thank you for looking. Take care & Keep smiling
