Picture Perfect Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is going to be a quick post with a fun and easy card to create.

For the cute little camera image and the sentiment I used the D-504 Picture Perfect stamp set from The Rubber Cafe`.  The card came together really quick and easy with a few layers of paper (all cardstock from listed below), stamps and die cuts.  I used S5-149 SnapshotS4-399 Charmed I'm Sure and S4-398 Say What die templates from Spellbinders Creative Arts™.  I used Royal & Langnickel Silver Engraving Art Foil for the camera die cut and lightly sanded the paper to reveal the silver foil.  I love how the camera turned out!  The only coloring that I did was to add a little sparkle to the stamped image of the camera using a Spica Silver Glitter Pen.

Here is a close up of the camera.  Love the sparkle!

For the snapshot and little word block I used letter press technique (or maybe you have heard it called Reverse Stencil) with Versa Magic Midnight Black in from Imagine Craft/Tsukineko.  If you have never done the letter press technique it is really easy--put the die template on a piece of scratch paper with the cut side (ridges) face up, press the ink pad in to the die template giving it a good coverage of ink.  Then carefully pick up the die template and place it face down on the paper you want to cut and then die cut the image.  The ink can get a little messy so I usually put a sheet of printer paper down on my mat, then the die template and cardstock and then fold over the printer paper.  When you do this both sides of  the die template will be covered and you won't get ink on your mats.  Once you are done you can use a baby wipe to remove the ink or wash it with soap and water.  The best ink to use for this technique is a craft ink--like a pigment or chalk ink--something that won't dry too quick.  To finish off the card I added a few Holly Berry Red Jellie Dots from The Rubber Cafe`.
