You're not old!
Happy Saturday! I'm sharing a project over at My Craft Spot today and am posting it here on my blog too. My sister celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago and this is the card that I created for her. We have a bit of joke between us which started when we took a trip to Egypt together years ago. I kept giving her all my things to hold so I could take photos and she ended up carrying my things all over. She asked if I thought she was my camel (as there are lots of camels carrying things in Egypt) and I started calling her Kami (as a nickname for "camel"). It stuck! Now, I always try to get her camel-themed cards and gifts. Camel cards are made easier with my Silhouette!!
The camel itself is a file I found at the Silhouette store (#5628). After cutting and assembling her, I popped her onto the background I created with some patterned paper and borders cut using the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set. I then stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Wishes set onto my banner, which was created using the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies. I used some enamel dots for my camel's eyes and on the banner too.
I used more Birthday Wishes sentiments for the inside of my card, and also decorated it with some patterned paper and a Fancy Edges 2 border.
Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful weekend!
