Step 2 – Distress the edges of a 13cm square of patterned paper from the Bright Paper Pad & attach to the card front at an angle.
Distress the edges of a 8cm x 15.3cm piece of co-ordinating patterned. Layer onto a piece of black card and attach to the front of card across the centre as shown.
Trim a co-ordinating patterned paper to 9cm square & stamp the Skateboarder from the Street Wise set in the centre, then stamp randomly around the edge. Layer on a 10cm square of embossed black card and attach to the card at an angle as shown.
Step 3 – Stamp a sentiment from the Rock Star stamp set onto a leftover piece of paper from the topper you created and layer onto an embossed piece of black card, then attach to card.
Step 4 – Die cut a selection of cogs and gears from the die set and attach to the card around the topper as shown.
Tip – Waste not, want not – use the tiny rectangles that are waste pieces from the large cog as embellishments.
