A little Steampunk spookyness....Graphic 45 style

Love Graphic 45.  Love their designs and quality.  Love working with em.....so when we had the new papers on the POD last week, the only disappointment was not getting enough time to work with them as I would have liked.  If you haven't tried Graphic 45 yet, do give them a go.  The papers are all double sided and they smell and feel wonderful.  The images are always so cool - and being a fan of the spooky and scary, obviously the new Steampunk range is completely up my street.

I managed to make one card.  I used acetate as the pockets are double sided, and what I didn't want to do was hide anything, so the acetate works perfectly (I actually couldn't find any, so had to cut up a packaging box).  I made a pocket from some of the papers on the inside of the card, for the wonderful little postcards.  Again, these are double sided, so you can write on the reverse.

Using papers like this means you need little else but adhesive - and maybe a little ribbon.  Soot black distress ink - or a lovely orange works well.

If you would like the papers please check out the Create and Craft website.  On  my website you will find other Graphic 45 paper packs and the lovely stripe ribbon.

A wonderful creation Leonie, it's great. I love that you cut up packaging for the acetate what a brilliant idea!
