Focus on Steampunk + Tutorial

Steampunk is a genre that mixes technology and designs from 19th century industrial machinery. It’s a combination of old and new. This started as a genre of science fiction and fantasy, but it’s ever-evolving and has influenced fashion, literature, art, and even papercrafts! It’s so easy to add steampunk elements to your cards, and the results are truly timeless!

Steampunk paper crafts are very embellished and are generally brown and grey in colour. They include LOTS of layers with vintage and antique elements as well as metallics. Some common elements are gears, distressed papers, light bulbs, quirkily dressed characters, Victorian ladies, gentlemen in top hats, but all with a modern twist! It’s really fun and highly recommend it!
