Step #1:

So for my dad’s birthday we got him an iPhone 7 but it won’t be in for about another week. I figured what better way to tell him what he was getting than to draw it out for him. The phone he currently has doesn’t keep reception like it use to even though everyone else phone with the same carrier would have reception in the same spot.

The first thing I did was draw a rough draft with which icons I wanted to used and then what colors I wanted to use to color everything in accordingly. I used my small square stamp pad from Close To My Heart for the icons since it was the size I needed and the only thing I could find at the time.

drawing out each things as well as possible with various objects or my Westcott stencil.

After satisfied with my drawings, I traced everything with my Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Pen. Once everything was traced, I used my erasers for any pencil markings showing.

Step #4:

Originally, I thought I would used the option in Photoshop Elements to Create a Card but that didn’t work out too well; so I went to plan B after editing my photos I wanted to use. Within Photoshop Elements I erased around my “Happy Birthday” and “iPhone” I created by hand and then took a picture.

Dad's iPhone -- Visit CraftyJBird.com for more info...Plan B…Microsoft Word. It’s the best for everything right?! There in Microsoft Word, my version is 2009, I used two text boxes and placed my “Happy Birthday” on the left and “iPhone” on the right.

Step #6:

Dad's iPhone -- Visit CraftyJBird.com for more info...After my creation was printed, I trimmed it to size making it to fit my pre-scored blank card. Though, before adhering it to my card I wrote my saying I came up with on the front. I thought it was perfect since this ‘phone’ I drew is just like his with not having service no matter what is done to it. Luckily, the phone that’s on its way will be way better!

Step #7:

There you go, a fun and cute card for that special someone whether you have an iPhone on the way or not. Hope you enjoyed!
