Say cheese !

Hi there!

If you read this, your hobby is most probably the same as mine...

To be able to share my hobby with you, I need to take pictures for the blog and Instagram. Looking back at some of my earliest blog posts, I realize that I have learned so much over the past 7 !!! years. Not only about our craft, but the photography part as well!

So, if for some or other reason I decide to stop making cards, photography would definitely be an option.

Here's today's card. Hobby inspired, of course :)

I used :

  • Camera cutting file from : Apex Cuttables
  • Bubble stencil (unknown brand)
  • Distress ink
  • My own printed birthday sentiment
  • Silhouette cameo
I knew I wanted to add a fun background and my first thought was to do polka dots. I then remembered I have this stencil with its 'mouse cheese' look. Picking the colors was of course easy after I found the perfect stencil! The camera/sentiment was cut 3 times and layered for dimension.

Cheese? Swiss meets bokeh, Hannelie! How absolutely adorable - and yes, your photography skills are great - but never think of giving up card making, please?

I love how your mind works! Incredibly cute card!! After reading your mention of change I had to go take a peek at your archives. I love how you've evolved from one year to the next, and I adore your current style. What's next, I wonder? I don't see how it can get better than this!

Perfect! Your Swiss cheese background is an awesome choice and nicely fits the theme of your card. I love the dimensional camera, too.

What a fun cut camera and sentiment. Love your stenciled circles for your background and sweet printed sentiment. TFS Hannelie. Hugs

P.S. we have all learned so much about card craft, including our photos...blogs, etc. So Fun! All our new friendships have been a huge plus too:-)

This is a case of the sentiment inspiring the design, Hannelie. Make the background cheese was a brilliant idea.
