Darling Donkeys, Birthday Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

I have always liked the "Polaroid" technique and this set is perfect for it. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Oh So Ombre" 6" x 6" paper stack and taped it to the card base. 

Next I cut a 3" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White for the Polaroid frame. I also cut a 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White for the back of the Polaroid piece. 

I die cut a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" square from the 3" x 3-3/4" Polaroid piece. Line up the top and sides and then die cut the square. You can use this square to stamp on if you want. I like to have a whiter background. When using the square you die cut out, you will see the DSP from the inside if you don't line it up perfectly. So I just play it safe and cut my card stock a bit smaller than the Polaroid piece.

The words are from the "Darling Donkeys" set and I stamped them using black Memento ink on the Polaroid piece.

I stamped the donkey from the "Darling Donkeys" set using black Memento ink and I colored it in using Blends Pens. I  used light and dark Crumb Cake, Light Real Red for the flower, light Blushing Bride for the muzzle, light Flirty Flamingo for the inside of the ears and Bronze for the tail and hair.

I sponged on some Bermuda Bay ink on the background. I added Dimensionals to the Polaroid piece and pressed it on top of the donkey piece.  I taped this to the front of the card and the card was done.  

This was a very quick and easy card to make. And the donkey is pretty darn cute too!

Thank you SO very much for taking the time to stop by and take a look today,
