My card share today showcases the brand new Polar Pals Creative Cuts dies. I created my own little "polaroid" photo using the Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts Dies complete with a scene crafted using the Polar Pals Stamp Set and new coordinating dies. I matted the entire thing on a jumbo sized tag created with the brand new Tags A Lot Creative Cuts die collection.
To create the polaroid, I first stamped and colored the images from the Polar Pals Stamp Set using Copic Markers, then I die cut the colored images with the coordinating Polar Pals Creative Cuts dies and fussy cut the snow drift, adding a touch of color with the BG0000 Snow Green Copic Marker.
I die cut the large polaroid frame from the Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts die collection from white cardstock, gray cardstock and patterned paper. I adhered the white frame to the dark gray frame, slightly off-setting the frames for a nice "shadow". I assembled the fun snow scene on the "inside piece" from the polaroid frame cut from patterned paper.
I stamped the greeting from the Polar Pals Stamp Set uisng both black and red inks.
I die cut the large tag from the Tags A Lot Creative Cuts die collection from light gray cardstock and the hole reinforcement from dark gray cardstock. I adhered the hole reinforcement to the tag, punching a hole to thread some ribbon through and tie in a pretty bow.
I assembled the frames and winter scene on the large tag and adhered washi tape to the top and bottom of the polaroid photo for a fun touch.
A scattering of Christmas colored sequins add sparkle and embellishment.
I adhered the tag to my white card base using foam adhesive.
