Camera Double 'z'

Hello again,

Well I'm still catching up on cards I made for some July Birthdays almost all male, now that they have all been received I can post them here.

This card was for my Dad's birthday, since taking up studying has become a family affair he likes to head to cemeteries taking photo's of headstones, some plain and simple others large ornate headstones. 

I made my first 'Double Z' card (at least I think that is what this fold is called) I did of course make a couple of errors, you know measure twice cut once... and if I'd thought of it I probably should have hidden the backs of the brads behind the silver card before attaching it to the card blank... never mind... and I could have made the lens into a shaker element if I'd thought of that at the time too...

The extra special enamel dots you can see behind the camera has nothing to do with hiding anything like glue from dropping the blue rhinestone on the card either ;-)

Here's my card:-

from a different angle...

White 14cm square card blank
Metallic pinstripe cardstock colour- let’s call it Keyboard beige…
