This year for our nephew's birthday my husband had the idea of printing out a childhood photo of him and making a gift tag. I took the idea and ran, I used the same photo to make a card for him. Couldn't believe the reception the card got, it was passed around at the party with everyone admiring it.
I've decided to go with the general idea for most of the cards I make. I came up with this one for my daughter's 16th, using a photo of her as a 3 or 4 year old in a scrapbooking pendant/frame. I took the jumpring off the frame and attached it to the card using a brad through the hole at the top and glue on the back.
I wasn't happy with the glue marks showing through the vellum (actually it's a printable tracing paper not really vellum). I made another one, same frame on pink background for a niece's 4th birthday and printed her name on cardstock in black ink. I then overlaid it with the vellum using brads at the corners to attach it to the card.
I only wish I had access to more of those frames, I bought them from a craft show for $1 a pack, the pack had a heart and a rectangle shape frame in it. Should have bought more.
