My Favorite Things Camera Card

Happy Wednesday!! Today I am sharing a card I created using My Favorite Things dies, "Picture This" stamp set and the PTI stamp set "Fabulous Frames."

I created this card for a friend who is going through a difficult time right now.

I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this card when I started, except that I wanted to use the camera die and the sentiment I chose. The first step was to die cut the camera out of some silver card stock and then the accents out of pink and black. I adhered the accents on the front of the die cut with dot adhesive and adhesive foam. I put that aside and brainstormed what I wanted to do for the rest of the card.

I decided on a white background card measuring 4 1/4" by 5 1/2." I want to write a nice note inside so I wanted to make sure that whatever I used, the inside had to be easy to write on. I then cut a piece of 4" by 5 1/4" piece of patterned heart paper and adhered it to the front.

Next I die cut a Polaroid frame using Paper Trey Ink's "Fabulous Frames" dies and stamped the front with the matching stamp in black ink. I did not realize how messy this would be. I got the ink EVERYWHERE!! I used permanent black ink because that was the only kind I had. I need to get a black ink that isn't so messy. I added the pink polka dots to complete the frame.

The last piece of the puzzle before I assembled the card was to die cut a square and stamp the sentiment. Then I adhered everything together as shown. My last step was to add some Diamond Stickles glitter glue where the flash would be on the camera. Here is a little closer shot of it so you can see a bit more detail.

I am having so much fun with these camera dies and sentiments. I can see myself using this set for a lot of fun cards. In fact, tomorrow I will share one more card that I created this weekend using this set.

Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great night!!
