CC Designs ~ 'say cheese'

I knew I had to have this stamp set as soon as I saw it (hubby likes his mountain climbing).  It's called 'say cheese' and is part of the Sugarplums range from CC Designs (available here.  The first lot already sold out but I know more is due in very soon)
I wanted to make the couple look like it was photograph, so stamped them together along with the rock (loads of cute little accesory stamps in this set). The brown strip behind it is supposed to look like film negative.   There is actually more writing stamped on the brown strip but I used a versafine watermark pad so it's not come out in the photo very well - it says 'picture perfect'.  The cutie with the camera has been cut out and raised on foam pads, may be able to see that better below.  I've also added glossy accents over the camera lens for a shiny glass finish.  Everything else kept simple, just grass border punch and some coordinating ribbon.
Thought this would make a cute card for someone going away on a trip/journey or holiday or for front of a mini photo album.

  • Stamps: 'Say Cheese' Sugarplums set by CC Designs
