Geared Up Garage Steampunk Cake

Geared Up Garage Steampunk Cake

Well I really liked my first Steampunk inspired card I posted a couple days ago [click here to check it out]. BUT, I must confess this is my fav. The cake, hat and gears give a steampunk feel. [At least I think so, wink.] Today’s share I’m calling my Geared Up Garage Steampunk Cake. (giggle)

This gender neutral design is full of shine with a vintage feel. The base starts with Balmy Blue, layered with Night of Navy and Sahara Sand embossed with the Corrugated Embossing Folder. I sponged the ridges with Sahara Sand to add a distressed look.

The cake is Balmy Blue with it’s edges sponged to add dimension. It sits upon a Gold Foil pedestal, from the Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Set. I cut apart Gold, Silver and Copper Foil gears from the Garage Gears Thinlits and placed them randomly. (The best I could being a TypeA. Lol!) To finish the cake I topped it with a Night of Navy hat from the Best Bunny Stamp Set. I clear embossed the hat and fussy cut it before placing onto the cake.

To finish the card I added the Sahara Sand band complete with my “go to” faux suede technique. The sentiment is from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set stamped in Night of Navy.
