Graphic 45 - Voyage Beneath the Sea Home Decor Card

If you are looking for my Craft Hoarders Anonymous April Blog Hop project, please click HERE.

Voyage Beneath the Sea is the latest in the Steampunk-themed papers from Graphic 45. My little heart leaped at the sight of cogs, gears, plaids, and yes, sea horses! 

This vibrant collection is whimsical and fun! I created an 8" x 8" home decor card, perfect for framing. I create cards in this size using one sheet of 8" x 8" cardstock and one sheet of cardstock cut to 8" x 8 1/2", with a hinge at the top. Cards of this size are fun to give when the occasion is extra-special and become the gift itself!

I decorated the card with metal and chipboard gears, propellers, spigots, flowers, and leaping fish. Nothing says "I love you" quite like underwater steampunk! I even managed to sneak a tiny light bulb into the mix!

I love the thought of the pipe spewing gears and flowers and starfish! It is all very Jules Verne and 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Sea!

I mixed metal embellishments with "rusty" chipboard and laser cut cardstock! 

Here is the inside of the card.

I love the shades of green, blue, and orange! Such wonderful ephemera cards, too!

Thanks for joining me in an undersea voyage!
