DAY 13: I’ve been blogging daily this month so that I can catch up a little on some of the many cards I’ve never blogged about.

Today’s featured card is one I made yesterday for a friend. He’s a talented photographer and his photographs were featured in an art exhibit in Portland. I only had a few minutes to make a card before I left home, and I turned to my Cricut Expression machine and my Cricut® Artbooking cartridge to make this photographer card. I used some bright colors that reminded me of Polaroid’s logo, even though my friend uses a fancier camera than a vintage Polaroid camera!

Camera CardBefore gluing all the shapes down, I wrapped ribbon around the blue cardstock and added three coordinating brads that resemble buttons. After attaching it to a green card base, I used Liquid Glass to fill in around the letters in the word bubble. It doesn’t show in the photos, but the negative spaces in the word bubble are shiny. Shiny things are cool! Unless it’s my face that’s shiny, and then that’s just embarrassing.

Oh Snap

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
