Saturday Sketch Card: photo card

Here another card with a photo my friend has send me.
Of course for today I looked for a sketch i could use
and I found it on the Retro Sketch Blog.

For the background I used some papers from my 
scrap blocks.I cut the picture and the layer with
some photo spellbinder dies.

The shell is a stamp by Michael Strong and is first embossed it
with silver embossing powder. This stamp also has a matching die.
First cut the die out of a piece of scrap paper and lay this on top 
of the stamped image. Mark the dotswith a pen.

Then lay the die on top of the image and make sure
the tine dots match the dots on the sides of the die.

The use your cutting machine and this is the result.

Here the inside of the card.

I added another shell and a plain one stamped with 
Mike's paisley background stamp.

The sentiment on this card is digitaland printed
with the computer.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I want to enter this card for
Cuttlebug Mania: use a sentiment
Cardz 4 Guyz: use a die or punch

Have a creative day!
