Clicking Camera Card

I really like photography and think this is a great card to send some of your favourite pictures inside.

I'm always  afraid of using patterned paper and have never had the courage to buy some online. This striped one is sold here in Chile, but I bet you can find prettier pads on amazon. I think I'll be placing an order soon. LOL!
I like the Distress Inks watercolor technique so much that I use it every time I can I colored the camera using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Black Soot and Scattered Straw.

For the base card I used the We R Memory Keepers celebrate embossing folder and added color tapping the raised surface with the Iced Spruce distress ink pad.
 I also went all the way and distressed the edges of the flash light cutout to give it some dimension with Vintage Photo distress ink and gave it a couple of spritzes of heirloom gold perfect pearls mist to make it shiny.

The word cutout is my handwriting and after I cut it, tapped the versamark ink pad on top of  it and added some clear embossing powder. I decided I wanted more dimension and repeated the process. I've realized Judikins embossing powder aren't expensive at all and work great with a little heat.

The button is a plastic star embellishment sold here in Chile for school crafts for like a dollar the 10 units pack.

For this card I included the 4.25 x 5.5 in. base notecard in the file and it has cutting lines instead of scoring lines. If you want, just delete the layer and make it your own with half of a letter size white cardstock.
Here are the instructions
  1. Import in Cricut Design Space and resize to 5.5 inches wide
  2. Ungroup
  3. Change camera layer to write and attach to camera offset path (background)
  4. If you want you can delete the base layer and use a 4.25x5.5 notecard
  5. Cut
  6. Enjoy!
