Swimming By

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is Photography Day. For our challenge this week include something on your card that is photographic related … a photo/photos; images of photos, cameras etc. 

For my card I decided to pull out my Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Camera Add on die set to create a Magic Iris card. I have seen lots of cards using this die set that incorporate scenes, which is what I did for my card today, also making it a Slimline card.

I extended the tab that opens and closes the magic iris, to make it easier to grab when it is at the bottom of the card. While the tab is above the card when it is completely closed, the card will still fit into a #10 envelope, if you move the tab down slightly so it is below the fold in the card.

I recently received an order from Whimsy Stamps which included this wonderful "Taffy" Slimline Paper which I used for the background of my card. In that parcel was also this cute Mermaid set so I decided to use that on my card as well.

I also used Lawn Fawn's Slimline Stitched Hillside Border die set to create the sand along the bottom of the card and camera.

As you can see, I added a sentiment and a few more fish to the centre part of the magic iris, so it is revealed when it is fully opened.

I kept the inside of my card simple, adding another piece of the patterned paper along the bottom of the card. I also added another of the mermaids, fish and added a sentiment. 

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

This is such a fun card, Frances. I love that Magic Iris used with the Camera Add-on. I've got that Whimsy Stamps paper but have not used it yet. It looks great; I should pull it out.
