Sunset Photo Fold-a-Long Card

Good morning friends

Today I'd like to share another Instax Photo card, this time I used the Cactus Fold-a-Long for the card base, and Lynda Kanase's Succulent Serenity paper pad. I waited so long to be able to buy this paper pad that now I'd like to buy another and it's hard to find.

I have used the Bakers Twine to hold the Fold-a-Long cards closed before, and it works well. Easy peasy for the recipient to untie to open the card but the card stays closed util it is untied.

When the card is opened, there is a photo of one of our amazing Arizona sunsets.

I used brown card stock and Lynda's Photo Frame, Seasonal Props for the frame. The word 'beautiful' is from the Photo Frame, I AM Phrases. Inking the edges with Distress Oxide inks works well as this ink shows up on dark card stocks. I added some sequins as well and the card is done and ready to send.

The blooms on the cactus card base were also blended with the Distress Oxide Inks. Oh, and the cactus pot on the card front was made with the new Easter Basket at Elizabeth Craft Designs, I just trimmed off the handle and bottom so it would fit.
