Time to Dream!

Tic Tock, time to Dream! I'm dreaming of all the new products coming out at CHA right now. The possibilities are endless.

To start your dreamy card cut a piece of Kraft-core card stock to 6 1/4" x 9" score and fold in half. Cut a piece of decorative card stock to 5 3/4 x 4" and adhere to the base card. I sanded and inked the edges of the card. and of corse I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

The clock is Grunge Board covered with Ranger's Metal Foil Tape and then die cut with the Tic Tock Bigz die from the Tim Holtz Alterations line. Alcohol ink the clock using Pitch Black Alcohol ink on an Ink Applicator Tool, sand the metal to create a vintage feel. Around the outside face of the clock I added Long Fasteners approximately 1" apart. 

To make the face of the clock Tim has designed the die to fit his Lost and Found Paper Stash Clock paper perfectly. I also added some mica over the clock face. As you can see in the photo it doesn't quit fit and that's okay. Mini Gears, Mini Fasteners, Sprocket Gear and Game Spinners area added to the clock to make it more realistic. For the top, add a Clock Key so you can wind up your clock.

I embellished the card using more Mini Gears, Mini Fasteners, Sprocket Gears, Long Fasteners, Hinge Clips, Chain Tassel and Mini Numerals.
A Word Band was tied on with a piece of jute. Now you're ready to send your card to someone special.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
