Faux Polaroid Picture Perfect Cards

How exciting is this...
My cards are being featured on Stampin' Up!'s Corporate Blog!!
There, I am sharing a trio of "faux Polaroid picture perfect" cards.  These cheerful greeting cards feature Picture Perfect Party 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper (item 145559) faux Polaroid pictures which have been photo bombed by a bunch of adorable critters from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set (item 145898).
To make easy Polaroid frames I cut pieces of Whisper White Card Stock (item 100730) 3 3/8” wide by 3 3/4” tall.  Next, I used the Layering Square Framelits (item 141708) to cut the frame. Align the framelit as shown in the photo below.
The base of the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock (item 144245), Bermuda Bay Cardstock (item 131197), and Berry Burst Cardstock (item 144243) cards have been embossed with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item 145649).  Each of the framed Polaroid pictures is backed with pieces of the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (item 145562).  To adhere the crinkled paper shreds I added three strips of Tear & Tape (item 138995) on the back side.  I pressed the shreds into the tape and then clipped the really crazy extra long pieces away.
The greetings are stamped using the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set (item 145519) and Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Ink (item 140931).  I swooshed ink in the greetings with an Aqua Painter (item 103954) and Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 144086), Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 144083), and Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 131171).
I cut two of the greetings using the Stitched Shapes Framelits (item 145372).
To cut a shape perfectly sized to fit the third greeting image I ran it through the Big Shot (item 143263) twice to make two cuts using the Layering Square Framelits (item 141708).  Once with one of the square shapes and then a second time with a scalloped square to create a fun edge.  
All three cards are embellished with a few of my favorite accessories: Basic Black Bakers Twine (item 134576), Rhinestones Basic Jewels (item 144220), and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter (item 133751).
It has been a blast sharing these Polaroid style celebration themed cards with each of you!
