If you look carefully you can see that its just all about shapes. A folded rectangle of card that has been cornered at the edges to soften the shape. Circles for the lens lifted with black 3D foam between each layer to give the telescopic look to the lens, finished up with a circular frame with Silver card behind it to give the actual lens look. Punches was used to make the holders for the ribbon and the view lens at the top.
For the back of the card I made a false back to hide my punched pieces and secure them. I have pulled the back so its a bit loose so you can see in the photos how everything fits in. I made up the back buttons with square punched pieces and a silver pen. The back central panel with the acetate is actually lifted up with 3D foam around the edges so that a photograph can be fitted in as part of the card.
The lens cap is two circles that trap the ribbon between them. If I made this card again in the future I would put a magnet in the middle of these pieces of card and a magnet behind the silver Lens on the front of the camera so that the lens cap would stay on the card :)
This has got to be one of my top ten favorite cards that I have ever made, I hope you like it too. Just think of how many people would love to get a card tailored to match the camera they have. Cool right :) By the way Sharon if you are reading this, yes it is the card you were meant to receive 2 years ago that I couldn't bear to part with!!!! lol.
