Telephone Box cut out

I have been on a roll, and after seeing these challenges, decided to do another post tonight.

My great nephew lives in Belgium so I decided to make something from "home" for some reason, I decided to send a card with a telephone box on, but then thought, I wonder if I could make a cut file out of it, so off I went looking for pictures to give me a clue and found a telephone box George V style. I opened up Photoshop, got some lines together added a few shapes, linked them all together, put a crown on top and then printed the "TELEPHONE" onto it.

Next step was to save it as a jpeg and import it into Fairycuts my cutting program, I had to play about it with it again A LOT!!! but in the end was able to save it as a WPC file. If anyone wants it, send me an email.  As the word and crown were cut out, I added gold card behind the crown and black behind the wording.

Here is the card, I used Mikey from Charmed Cards and Craft, added 14 for his age and a Union Jack onto his T shirt, then thought it too plain, so added some Union Jack flags done in PS, I waved them so they looked like they were in the wind. Placed them onto a narrow ribbon and glued it to the card, with 3d pads underneath the front end, hoping they look more like flying in the wind LOL.  I added acetate behind the front to make it look like glass, perhaps you can see the shine in the photo.  I printed the sentiment on the card, inside it says "because it's your birthday"



I am going to enter the following challenges with this card

  16. Faith this is just amazing ! Love this wish I knew how to make my own cutting files as I have the Cameo and it would be a huge advantage. Perfect for a guy and love the clever sentiment.
