Hi friends.  Just a quick post to show you what I was playing with today.  Recently, I purchased a few Sizzix Bigz XL dies at really reasonable prices.  This retro camera card is one of my favorites so far.  I had fun playing today and making several of them up.  I created sentiments on the computer to go with for the inside, like Smile, it's your birthday, and Have a picture perfect birthday.

I made the blue and cream one in remembrance of a small
camera I once owned as a young teen.
I pretty much followed the picture on the packaging, and made
some slight changes.  Embossing folders for texture.
Really fun card, don't you just love the flash!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later........

Oh how cute and yes I do remember these and the blue colored one was my favorite. These are like perfect replicas. People will love receiving these cards. Seeing this style of camera reminded me of a time a couple of years ago we my son picked up an old 33 1/3 record from a pile of stuff in Hubby's garage and asked his children "Do you know what this is" and both of them said "No" with a big question mark in their voices. The kids were about 15 & 17 years old at the time. That just seemed so strange to me. Have a fun day and thanks for sharing this die and your cards with us.
