Just Because, Perennial Birthday, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

Today I played with the "Polaroid" technique.  It's a fun and easy technique and take up most of your card so you can whip up a card in no time.  Well, depending on what you put on it for your image.  You can find the instructions for this technique here.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Share What You Love" 12" x 12" package.  I taped it directly to the card front.

Then I cut the card stock for the Polaroid piece.  I used the cut out piece to stamp my image on.  I used the image from the "Just Because" set from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  I colored in the planter using light and dark Petal Pink Blends. And I colored in the leaves using the light and dark Mint Macaron Blends.  I used a blender pen and the Smoky Slate marker to color the background.  I think it would have looked better if I would have colored in the entire background. 

The words are from the "Perennial Birthday" set and I used black Memento ink to stamp them.  

I ended up cutting another piece of card stock just a hair shorter than the Polaroid piece. I set the Polaroid piece on top and then taped the square in place.  I removed the Polaroid piece and added my Dimensionals to the back and then set it in place on the card front using snail tape.  And that was it.  A super quick and easy card to make.  I may make another one tomorrow using this. I really like this technique.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
