Tutorial - Clock card using Tim Holtz Vintage globe die

Hi everyone :-)
Had so fun making cards with Tim Holtz dies so i though I share how to make this clock card.

Design Team project for Kreativ Scrapping and you can find the products here

The accessories are from Tim Holtz
Glitter struktur gel is from Marabu
Spellbinders foil 
Metallic rub ons 

The card can be used as a frame for the receiver 

First I cut out the vintage globe

Then cut it apart 

Took another piece of paper and drew around the globe

Drew an inner circle and cut it out

Used strukturgel on the outside circle and on the bottom and top of the " globe"
The magnets go behind like you see on the picture, but first the clock part and spinners has to be put on

Used black soot distress ink

Spinners painted with black dabber

Metallic rub - ons on the spinners
used the colors the spinners are pointed at 

Used the colors the spinners are pointed at and also a bit of the pink
Glue the out circle only on a bit on the side ( a bit under half )

Glued the clock and ball chain on with glossy accent

Now the spinners can be attach and the magnet put on the back side

Glue on a piece of paper and cut around

Cut out an other circle same size as the clock circle
Used tiny tabs and tags for the little tab

Glue the other magnet behind the " globe"
The circle tag can be placed under the outer circle 

Here you can attach a gear

Card base
Cut a paper 3 1/2 x 9 and score at 4 1/2
fold over an glue the " globe" on from the bottom and up to the fold

Cut out and now it should look like this

For the back side I used Spellbinders foil and embossed it with gears embossing folder.
Painted it with black dabber. It makes the card more study

Marked it around and cut out a bit on the outside of the pen marks

Glued it on with glossy accent and cut around

Used the same metallic  colors on the foil

Some gears for decoration. Some of them I painted with black dabber
This clips are great to use and you can find them in some hardware stores

Have a video tutorial for another clock card and the base is build up the same way
Here is the link,

Hope this was helpful and have fun creating :-)

Hugs, Anne
