Music From the Heart, Magnolia Lane , Polaroid Technique, Birthday Card

I have not done the Polaroid technique in a while. I like it because it has a nice focal point and a place for some wording.  Oh, and it's easy to do.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" paper pack and I taped it to the card base.

I took a 3" x 3-3/4" piece of Petal Pink and I die cut a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" square from the center.  Mine didn't quite get centered. I used my magnetic platform and the piece shifted. If I would have used a post it note it may have stayed where I set it.  But I'm using it anyway, it's not off by that much.

I stamped the words from the "Music From the Heart" set using black Memento ink. I set it aside to dry.

I also cut a piece of Whisper White that is just a bit shy of 3" x 3-3/4".  I didn't want to have to deal with lining it up perfectly.  

I set the Petal Pink piece on top to see where the center of that opening would be.  Then I sponged on some Mossy Meadow ink in that area.

I die cut the flower from the same "Magnolia Lane" DSP.  

I taped the Petal Pink piece to the sponged Whisper White piece.  Then I taped that to the front of the card. 

I added the flower using Dimensionals.

Then I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done.

I like this technique because it fills up the front of the card quickly and makes a great layout. You have a place for some type of image (here the flower) and a place for the words.  This was a fun card to make.  But next time I will not use my magnetic platform.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
