Hey everyone, I have a fun card to show you today, using the newest "Retro Camera" card die by Jen Long for Sizzix. You know, when I received this die in the mail, I set it on my craft table for a few days, constantly looking at it, before I found the right time to use it. I just wasn't sure if I was going to be able to create what I wanted to with such a cute die. But I think my result is as close to what I wanted it to be and I really couldn't be happier. The right papers and embellishments make this the sweetest little vintage camera card in the world. I absolutely love how it came out, and I hope you enjoy it too.
To make the card, I simply die cutted the camera, (and all the parts), using white, heavyweight cardstock, glittered paper, and and assortment of pattern papers. To assemble, it's just a matter of adhering the pattern papers to the white cardstock and layering all the different pieces together. I really love the glittered paper. Never in my life would I ever find such a love for glittered paper, but I swear, I might use it on everything from this point on.
I then used another of my favorite dies, "Floressa" by Prima, to die cut and layer a sweet, big flower complete with a clear button and twine.
For my sentiment, I used the "Curvy Banner's" die by Tim Holtz to stamp "Smile" in black ink.
I also used some Tim Holtz rub-on's to add the black stars and numbers along the side.
For this card you will need the following supplies:
"Retro Camera" by Jen Long
"Floressa" by Prima

I certainly hope you enjoyed my card today! I love this die, it's so much fun to create with, and I hope I've inspired you to create a vintage camera of your own.
