A Card with A Photo

Good Day to everyone! Today I want to share with you a Card I made for my son who has just turned 12 months 2 days ago. It was quite challenging for me to create a Boyish card since I didn’t want it to be a Baby one. So I found the way to do it in my style, I just added his photo to my card.


I used Life In the Country Collection, as it is so versatile , and you can find there some papers that can be definitely called masculine, but at the same time they are so soft that are so perfect for Baby projects as well.


I made some cutting as well as tearing the paper. And as you know this month’s Mood Board is based on this collection, so I had some leftovers from the previous project for Mood Board Inspiration, that is why I added some of them there too.


I hope I have inspired you to use your paper scraps and small photos and incorporate them into Birthday or Any others Special Day cards
