Stamp your image onto white card

Coloured with your favourite medium.

As the image is wider than the polaroid die cut I am using, I cut around the ribbon on the right hand side of the image.

I slipped the polaroid under to check that it fit.

Then I marked each side with a pencil

Cut the image to size, using the pencil marks as a guide, and adhere to the die cut.

Stamp the sentiment.

Add some lace and/or ribbon across the front panel and attach the image using pop dots, ensuring you only apply pop dots to the left hand side and the bottom of the image. Embellish as desired.

    What a beautiful card! I’m not even going to attempt to make that card but I like seeing what you did to make it. It looks a little to complicated for me though. I just love those chicks! They get into more mischief. Thanks for showing us your beautiful card. I hope whoever got it loved it as much as we all did.
