Painted Harvest, Daisy Delight, 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, Polaroid Technique

I've always wanted to try the Polaroid Technique. It's pretty easy to do once you know the dimensions of the Polaroid piece, and I will share that info with you so you can have some fun with this technique.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Tangerine Tango.  I stamped the leaf images on it using VersaMark. I set it aside to dry.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3" x 3-3/4".  I  used the 2-1/2" square die to cut out the upper part.  Make sure your edges, top and sides are even.

Then I stamped the image. Mine is from the "Painted Harvest "set. I used Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie for the sunflower colors. I used Chocolate Chip ink for the flower center.

The words are from the "Daisy Delight" set and I stamped them using Chocolate Chip ink.

I stamped the leaf using Pear Pizzazz ink for both the solid part and the veins.  I punched the leaves out and I set them aside.

To assemble the card, you put the frame and square on the card front and see how you like it to line up.  Make sure the top part of the Polaroid part will not hang over the edge of the card base.  Once you find where you'd like the stamped square to be, tape it down.  Then add Dimensionals to the back of the framed Polaroid piece and set that in place lining it up with the square. 

Next I taped the leaf in place and I called the card done. I thought I was going to add at least 3 leaf sets but one was just enough!

This is a very fun technique and I can see myself attempting it again.  Once you have the measurements for the Polaroid piece you can just have a great time making them!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
