Happy Father's Day Card

Hello my crafting friends, good to see you here, hope you are all well, plenty of hugs going for those of you who need them.

Thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments of late I really do appreciate them. I am still up in cloud 9 with joining Sheena's Design Team, the others have been extremely welcoming, a lovely team so full of talent. Maureen please feel free to use any technique I put on here, we are all crafters and crafters share right?

Now today's post is the Father's Day card I have made for my FIL, I know its early to show it but hey!!! I knew I wanted a Photography theme as he used to do quite a bit of photography and still does bits now from time to time. I wanted an old looking Photography theme, hopefully I have achieved it?



I first used a sheet of Kraft card and folded it in half to form the base. Using some White Hammer card I put it through the Movie Theme embossing folder twice to extend the pattern, I lightly inked over  the top of the embossed part with Black Soot to show up the film reels.

I had the idea of incorporating old pictures of my hubby & his brother when they were small children so after putting them onto Photoshop I inverted each image to turn them into a negative.

Using the film die I die cut some Black card so it looked like a negative and carefully glued the images behind, I did not have much space to glue as obviously I did not want the images to cover the film cog holes down the side of the negative, once attached I added a strip of Black card to the back to strengthen it up a little, I attached these to the embossed film part on the right side of the card to try and make it look like it was part of the film. Not sure I achieved this but I am sure you can see what I mean lol!.
Using some Kraft card cut to size I stamped some images  with Vintage Photo then  inked round the edge of the card to make it look darker and more sepia toned. On more Kraft card I stamped the sentiments and made them look like little tags, I inked round the edge of these, tied some twine through and put them to one side. I re stamped the small film strips twice and the camera using my Versamark ink pad and heat embossed them with Black embossing powder, I placed these over the original stamps on the Kraft card using foam tape, I felt this made them stand out a bit more. I attached this onto my base card at an angle along with the sentiment tags as seen.

I typed various words on the PC including 'Happy Father's Day' and printed them off, cut them out and placed them in the spare space on my card, there you have the finished card, hopefully my FIL will like it!
