Grunge Steampunk Bendi Card by Pinky

Hey there SinCity Stamps friends, 
I am excited to be the guest designer for stamps in February!
I am looking forward to a fun relationship with SCS. 
I have an interesting card to share today with you. 
A steampunk style Bendi Card. If you haven't heard of Bendi cards, they are
an amazing layered card that is easy to create and really interesting to look at. 
Now you can google Bendi card styles or grab a cut file in your 
Silhouette/SVG store. I used a file by Samantha Walker in her Silhouette store. 
I used a beautiful shimmery card stock for this (CutCardStock).
I am going to share step by step how I made this card. 

Trim out Scalloped Bendi Card using Silhouette Die Cut machine. 
Using the crackle texture stamp from the SinCity Wings Stamp set-
and Gold StazOn- crackle entire card. 
Lightly dust with embossing powder (gold), and heat emboss for extra texture. 
 Take the wings from the SinCity Wings Stamp set-
and StazOn ink in Teal- stamp onto Kraft cardstock. 
Dust centers with gold embossing powder and emboss. 
Trim out wings. 
Using Xyron Tape- adhere gold ribbon to card panels. 
Then hot clue Connie Crystal- crystals over lace in a strand.
 I adhere the wings using 3 layers of Xyron Adhesive Dots, 
then added a Button Lovers metallic rose button. 
Assemble card as instructions show using Xyron High Tack Tape. 
 Fold each panel in. then add Liquid Pearls to the scalloped border. 
Next stamp "I'm Not Perfect" sentiment from SinCity Wings Stamp set-
onto Kraft card stock and add crackle texture stamp as well. 
Trim out and adhere to top corner. 
 In the end you have a beautiful card ready for that special friend!
 The details are just wonderful. Each stamp is perfect. 
I hope you enjoyed my post today and check out my 
blog for many other ideas and projects. 

Until next time- Keep on creating!
