Steampunk Inspired Card

A quick unadorned steampunk inspired card. I really wanted to jazz it up with some metal gears and embellies but also wanted it to be sent in a standard envelope without padding or extra postage.
The background was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The little flyer and the panel are from digital downloads that can be found in Inka's Altered Artifacts Etsy Store.

Beautiful card! It looks great without any metal details. The background looks like metal.

That's really cute! It definitely gets its steampunk point across even without the addition of embellishments!

This is fantastic, Sarah! What exactly did you do on that background? The gears really look metal and pop off the background, superb!
