Two Shaped Camera Cards - Two Different Machines - Silhouette, Cricut

Hi Everyone - Man, am I tired - I've had a very busy, productive weekend.  My husband and I deep cleaned on our house on Saturday and then I deep cleaned my car today.  I think someone must have slipped me an energy pill but now I'm TIRED!!!  Oh, and I also made two shaped camera cards with two different machines for two different people.  I wanted to show you how you can make something similar but with the two different machines.

The first card I made was for my niece, Stephanie.  She is married to my nephew, Christopher and today is her birthday.  She is a photographer and collects vintage cameras.  I found this cut file in the Silhouette digi store - Vintage Camera.  I modified the cut file because the camera was not a card.  So I copied the background of the camera, then flipped it, and then grouped the two pieces together to make the cardbase.  The rest of the camera I simply cut out and assembled.

Now the next card is for a special little boy that has a birthday coming up in March.  Please read his story here - Colin's Birthday - I believe you will want to send him a card too.  The story is very moving.

So I thought I would make a camera card with my Cricut.  One problem was I couldn't find a "camera card" that I liked.  So I found this camera on the Locker Talk cartridge.  In Cricut Craft Room, I welded the base of the camera together by copying the base, flipping it, and welding it together.  Then I sized all the pieces of the camera to fit the card base.  Then I cut them all out and adhered them together.

I used the same sentiment for bother cards - A Picture Perfect Birthday is our wish for you!  I hope that Stephanie and Colin will both like their cards.  I hope you will enjoy seeing how you use one idea for two different machines.  Thanks for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and comments!!

Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
