Creating a Card From a Photo

Hello everyone, Chitra here and today I am sharing a card using photo. It was little difficult for me to just come up with a card idea using photo, here is what I made…

PH6

By Chitra Nair (that is me and hubby dear)

To create this card:

  • First I took an A2 sized white card base and placed “bubble mask” stencil from studio calico and used my Perfect Paper Crafting Air brush along with R24 marker and spritzed little red color on the bottom part of the card base.

PH2

  • Then I took a photo  I wanted to use for my card and used Perfect Square tool and Perfect Cutting Mat to get the perfect measurement I wanted. I just wanted the left and right sides trimmed; I used the bottom edge as my catch edge and trimmed one side and did the same for the other side using top edge as the catch edge.
  • Once I was happy with the photo size I used corner punch to round all four corners.

PH4

  • For layering I used 3/8”-inch, 1/8”-inch and 3/16”-inch (from bottom to top); I used Perfect Layers Mini on design papers from DCWV.

PH5

  • I adhered the whole photo panel directly to the card base.
  • For the stamped image I used Avery Elle’s “Dream Boat” stamp set; stamped the image onto Crafters Companion ultra smooth white cardstock and colored it using Copics, then trimmed it out and adhered it using some foam squares.
  • The sentiment is also from the same Avery Elle’s set which is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Here is a close up:

A Gift From The Easter Bunny

Roxie used four of her favorite tools for this card, one being the Perfect Cutting Mat which is lightweight, a nice size and easy to store.

Roxie said “I like creating out of the box images and the Perfect Square always makes the task an easy one and it’s very easy to use.  I cut to the image and in this case between the lines then skip over the image and cut to the bottom.  I then cut the image out with scissors”.

Perfect Square

The Perfect Layers makes it easy to get even borders all around the panel.  On this card Roxie used the 1/16″ and 1/4″ for the image panel and 1/16″ and 1/8″ for the striped panel.

Perfect Layers

The Perfect Ruler came in handy for cutting off the white scrap to the length of the striped panel. Roxie’s favorite feature of this tool is the press down bar, it not only grips the project being cut to avoid movement but is also higher than the cutting blade which keeps the fingers out of danger should that knife slip.
