My all time favorite stamps at Viva Las VegaStamps! is the wonderful collection of Steampunk. For my last post on this fantastic team I had to pull out some of my favorites! The Victorian Balloon, Flying ManSteampunk Warrior and Nesting Gears

Lately I have seen a lot of tunnel cards in magazines and online.  I thought all the flying Steampunk contraptions would look great in one.  Here you can see the Victorian BalloonFlying Man and Man in Flying Machine inside the tunnel card.  They are stamped on a transparency and heat embossed with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder. zA hint of color was added with Copics.   

The tunnel card is four 5 x 6 inch pieces of card stock for the front and back.  The front is cut out to create a 1 inch frame. The sides are scored to create an accordion between the back and front. Miracle Tape was used to construct the card. 

The front and back were stamped repeatedly with the Nesting Gears.  Also on the front frame are the Fancy Vintage Key, Key 3/4 x 1 1/4, Steampunk Gothic and Steampunk Gear

Just inside the frame the Binocular Man is peering out of the frame, he was stamped on a transparency. On the outside of the frame is the Steampunk Warrior stamped on craft card stock. Both were heat embossed with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder

If you look carefully you can see all the dimensions inside of the tunnel. Tunnel cards are fun to make, give one a try!
