Birthday Shoot

Good sleepy Sunday morning! I'd like to share a card I made for my brother's milestone birthday. His favorite hobby is photography and he takes some awesome photos of nature and landscapes. With this in mind I created a card with a camera theme.

I chose a wood panel digital paper pattern for my background and composed and computer generated my sentiment. This was then matted with black card stock. Using Die-Namics camera dies, 3 different camera styles were cut out. To make them a bit more realistic looking, rain dots were added for the lens. Then the cameras were adhered randomly on this panel. Having completed the focal panel, it was popped on a white base c0ard with dimensionals.

For the inside of my card, i used the same wood panel digital paper and computer generated my saying. I added a photo of my brother as a little guy, used a transparent piece to cover the photo in order that it imitated glass and then framed it in black and adhered it to the inside panel. This panel was matted in black and adhered to the inside of the card.  My project was complete.

             I really, really love how this card turned out. I think my brother will get a big kick out of it.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your day is filled with sunshine and happy thoughts and lots of creativity! Make it a great day!

What a perfect card for your brother. Inserting his photo inside is just brilliant - I must remember that. And the cameras are adorable, especially with the great wood background. He is going to LOVE this!!!
