Mechanical cards - Gio

Hi, 
Day two for our mechanical cards week with Gio and a beautiful vintage Double Twisted easel card. 
Once again, you can download the PDF instructions HERE






 I cut a piece of cream cardstock to size (mine is 21 x 21 cm) and I covered with Claudine Hellmuth gesso. I cut it and folded as in the 'INTERACTIVE CARD INSTRUCTIONS' by Cathy Byrne. 
I sprayed using with Cosmic Shimmer Vintage misters: Egyptian blue and Dylusions ink spray: Melted chocolate through the Crafters Workshop - Gears stencil. When dry, I stamped randomly using Oxford Impressions stamps: London Telegraph and Jet Black Archival ink. I stamped the lady and gentleman on two squares of cardstock (mine are 10,5 x 10,5 cm) and I glued them to the two lower triangles.
I stamped two little gears on cardstock using Purple Archival ink, I cut them and I glued to the bottom of the card in a way that creates “holds” for the easels.



Materials
Cosmic Shimmer Vintage misters: Egyptian blue
