Camera for a birthday!

This has been a card I have wanted to make for a while with my Envelope Punch Board.  My sister-in-law's birthday is this coming week and she loves taking pictures especially when her kids were young.  I saw this card here and just used punches and circle nestabilities to copy it.  I put a strap on the camera with 3/16 inch eyelets so that the card would open and close.  Also had to add some bling to the card with a red pearl and a little crystal.  Would be a great card for a photographer!!

I had to add a picture, of course, to the card.  This is my sister-in-law, Charlotte, back in December of 1985 at my Mom & Dad's house for Christmas.  She is sitting on Santa's lap with her daughter, Jill.  Santa is my brother and her husband, Hal.  On the right hand side of the card is the sentiment but at the top it says, It's your day!  So Happy Birthday Charlotte!!

I wanted to make another one with some color instead of just black, white and silver.  A lot of cameras have the lens right in the middle so here is my take on this type of camera.  Check out this card I saw on pinterest here.

  1. Love this idea! The picture is great! Remember when the kids would cry because they were afraid of Santa!
