A few days ago one of my dearest friends turned 50. This is an important birthday, so I thought I had to give him an unusual card along with the present. I love creating exploding boxes and, in general, 3D projects, so I decided to create a mini exploding album with some details referring to his passions (IT and photography) and abilities (fixing anything at home). As it happens to many scrappers, I find quite difficult to create for men. But in this case I had some clear ideas from the very first moment: using neutral masculine colours such as black and grey and putting a reference to his main passion: information technology. With this album card I also wanted to thank him because he helped me a lot of times when my laptop made me crazy and I just wanted to throw it out of the window! ^___^
Nell'album si possono mettere sei foto.
He can put in the album six photos.
Per i numeri ho usato prima il tampone argento e poi le Perfect Pearls celesti.
For the numbers I used first silver ink and then light blue Perfect Pearls.
Ho disegnato e tagliato a mano tutti i pezzi del computer tridimensionale, compresa la tastiera e la mela, ed esclusa solo la parola "auguri".
I handcut all the parts of the 3D laptop, including the keyboard and the apple, and excluding only the word 'auguri', that means 'best wishes' or 'congratulations'.
