Crash your Stash

The current Crash Your Stash Challenge at Outlawz is to use photo corners - so I was thinking of that when I made this card...



We were playing with the Instax camera that we want to use on Thursday, at middle son Dan and Lizzie's wedding for their guest book. I wanted to decide whether to go and buy some photo corners or use glue...I decided I better nip to Officeworks...
The photo is of me, my husband and my daughter.

The wedding is in Fiji - so we are just getting packed to go to the airport...

I had various ideas for the design of this card - but I decided to use a sketch - and I came across this one from CASE this Sketch. I will link my card to both here and Outlawz.


Recipe:

  1. Kraft card blank.
  2. Layer of brown card.
  3. Layer of plain paper from Bloom 6 x 6 paper pad by crate paper.
  4. Pieces of brown card behind the strip of 'happy moments' paper from the same paper pad and the photo.
  5. Photo attached using photo corners.


 Well... I think I better finish getting packed...



Happy Crafting!
