Polaroid Birdhouses with Sympathy :D


A pastel tone sympathy card using the gorgeous Birds of a Feather stamp set and embossing folder which comes free with issue 158 of Simply Cards and Papercraft :D I really love this free gift, its gorgeous! And there'll be another video using this stamp set and embossing folder next week too :D This is quite a simple card design, using the embossing folder on white card as the background, then framing the images using the Fuzzy Lemon Polaroid die (which I snipped the HAPPY off of as it didn't go with the sentiment for this card). I like this concept, and I usually just make my own Polaroid using a rectangle of card and square die, but I finally caved and brought this gorgeous Fuzzy Lemon one, it was on a really good offer on CraftStash, so I actually got it for only £2.50 :D Such a bargain :D

For the background of the Polaroid, I used some Aqua Creative Expressions Foundations cardstock and a mix of Tide Pool and Soft Pool Hero Arts inks along with the 'Thinking of You' sentiment stamp and cluster of hearts stamp from the free set :D The for my focal images I just stamped and coloured three birdhouses and some of the two different sizes of flowers too :D Once everything was coloured and cut out, I then arranged it as I wanted, and I added some Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops as embellishments :D Hope you liked the card! I really love it! and you could easily switch up the sentiment too :D
