Smile & Say Cheese - for Just Add Ink # 334

UPDATE OCTOBER 27, 2016:  Winner!!

The challenge this week at Just Add Ink is an "inspiration" one. So many elements in that photo but the first one that caught my attention was the old camera (of course).  Just Add Ink #334...."Inspiration"  was provided by Di.

Here's my card, which was a challenge in itself to take pictures of: it is a Dutch Fold but opening sideways rather than from the top.


This is the inspiration photo: (note the camera bottom right)
The camera in Stampin'Up! Traveler stamp set looks almost the same as the one in the inspiration photo so I went with that one. I had Washi tape (non SU) that was perfect to frame it on the front panel.

As mentioned the card opens sideways and there are 2 smaller "doors" inside. Here are 2 more photos:


I decided to try this special fold card after watching a video tutorial on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. You can have a look at her cards and see her video by clicking on this link.

Inside the card I also used another element from the inspiration photo, the 'ampersand' (&) sign. This one comes from a Stampin'Up! retired set (You Plus Me).

Thanking for looking at my card. This one was a little bit more challenging to make but it sure was fun. I am still working on finding an appropriate "closure" for the card so its says closed. I do have little camera-shaped paper clips, maybe that would work.

Enjoy your weekend and Happy Stamping.


Louise, this is fantastic! I, too, was rather taken with the camera, but had nothing suitable to incorporate in a project. I LOVE your take on our inspiration pic. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink this week!
