Hello Everybody! It's Carrie here with my first card using the Everyday Wishes Digital & Physical Kit. Andrea recently released all her collections in a digital format and I couldn't wait to apply her lovely digital graphics from Everyday Wishes to this project!!
As you can see I decided to take the camera die-cut icon and make it into a cut file. I did this using Photoshop CC, and it was super fast and simple to do. After making it into a cut file, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the camera from thick watercolor paper 6 times. I stacked 5 of them together (not including the camera lens) using a Martha Stewart glue pen and backed it with plain white cardstock. This became the base of my camera with walls thick enough so I could make it into a shaker.
Next, I added in a bunch of sequins in purple, pink, iridescent white, and gold, along with a few mini pink and yellow stars and blue mini beads. I filled three of the sections leaving the large bottom and small top sections empty for my photos. Then, I took the gorgeous transparency from the kit and covered all the sequin sections, gluing the transparency to the top of my walls using the same Martha Stewart Glue Pen. To make sure the transparency was the correct size, I trimmed the excess with scissors after eyeballing it.
Now it was time to use the 6th watercolor cut (again, without the camera lens). It is still separate from everything else at this point. To attach the photo at the bottom and top I used a pen to loosely trace around the photos using the sections of the camera cut as a guide. Then I cut them out using scissors and attached them behind the camera (again, trimming off any excess). I did the same with the three tiny sections at the top of the camera with the pops of solid yellow and pink. Those pink and yellow papers came from one of the cut apart sheets in the kit. With my 6 and final camera cut ready I glued it on top of all the others using my glue pen. My camera is almost done at this point.
For the final touches to my camera, I backed the square hole that is above the lens (which is still a separate cut from the camera at this point) with more of the solid yellow paper from the kit cut apart sheet and then attached that whole piece to the transparency. For the lens, I added the yellow ice cream flair layered over a circle from my camera cut inside the lens and attached that piece to the transparency as well. Lastly, I cut out one of the hearts from the heart paper and trimmed the bottom to follow the angle of the top of the lens border. Then, I glued the bottom of the heart and popped up the top with a foam dot to have it rest at an angle.
With the camera portion finally complete, I finished my card by cutting a piece of the heart paper to 11 by 5 1/2 and folded it in half to make my card base. There is this really great stripe pattern on the other side of the paper, and so I lined the inside with plain white cardstock leaving a border so that stripe is a nice pop of color. Lastly, I glued my completed camera shaker to the front of my card. All done! This was such a fun card to make!! Thanks for taking a look : )
See you next time,
