I got the newest Valentine "kit" from svgcuts and had to make the little vintage camera box card just to have as a VDay decoration. I went a totally different route than her adorable, girly version (see below). I was inspired by a few vintage cameras to go brass/bronze/leather-look with mine.



And then I decided to go all mappy/travel-themed with the heart embellishments. I've been enamored of the navy blue and antique brass color combination lately, so that informed the hearts, too.





There's a little mirror in the back of the "lens"!



You can see how it's mounted on the insert of the box card.



There are gobs of details and I took photos of them all! Sometimes from multiple angles!





And here it is folded down to go into an envelope which I didn't make, because I'm not mailing it of giving it. I might make one just to store it in to keep it protected while in the Valentine's Day decoration bin, though. Roll Eyes



Her adorable version. I will probably make this again and do something more foofy like this. So cute!

I love your paper choices! I just got this set the other day and started to make a couple versions of the camera card. Im a cartographer so your choices really appeal to me, hehe. But Im doing one in blues, gray, and black for my nephew. Really cute design... boy, is it time consuming, lol. Especially picking out papers. Love your vintage feel with heart maps.  Smiley

Thank you! Please share when you finish yours! It's definitely a complex project, but I think it's really choosing all the papers and embellishments that take the longest! And then keeping it all straight in the brain!
