Pilkington Transport vintage car card

I took a little more time making this second vintage transport card card.  Instructions below -

You will need

Die cutting machine
Heat tool
Smooth White cardstock
A scrap of black cardstock
A4 sheet of Kraft card folded to form an A5 card blank.  plus a scrap for layering the topper onto.
Tim Holtz Distress Inks in walut stain, brushed courduroy, rusty hinge, squeezed lemonade and aged mahogany.
 Clear embossing powder
That special touch Masks - gears and penny farthing
Ideaology tag
Vintage ribbon
die cut gears
Vintage gold mica powder

 Stamp the topper onto a torn piece of white cardstock using walnut stain distress ink, sprinkle over embossing powder and emboss the image.  Distress the topper starting with the yellow ink on the car adding darker colours to the edges.  Tear a piece of kraft card slightly larger than topper and ink the edges with darker colour inks, sprinkle on embossing poder and emboss to give more texture to the piece.

Cut a square of white card approx 6"x6"  you will need to trim this down to fit the front of your A5 card but first carefully distress ink through the mask using a sponge or tool using the three lighter inks finally brushing in a light touch of aged makogany before removing the mask.  Now trim to fit the card and then distress all over the card including over the masked area using only the lighter colours.  Finally distress the edges of the square with the darker colours.   Flick water over the piece then heat dry.

Emboss the black strip of card using the gears mask through a die cutting machine.

Distress die cut gear shapes with darker inks and brush over mica powder.  Spritz lightly with water then heat dry to set.

Finally layer all of the pieces together stapling the tag in place with the ribbon on the left hand side and taping it in place under the topper.
