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
