Used TH Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock as top layer and TH core'dinations cardstock as base & middle layer. Embossed top layer w/ TH Steampunk embossing folder. Used TH sander on embossing. Used TH paper distresser on top layer edges. For chipboard I recycled cereal box cardboard and used TH Mini Gears Set to cut 2 Gears out.
