For this weeks Freshly Made Sketch challenge, Rita used a die that cut out a shape like the old Polaroid pictures, and designed her sketch around it. How fun is that!  


I couldn’t resist combining my two stamping hobbies, since thoughts of Polaroid cameras was taking me back in history. I chose a six cent stamp from 1968, celebrating the Hemisfair. I glued six stamps to cardstock and used a scallop edged Layering Circles Die to cut the size that would fit within the Very Vanilla square. Two of the Layering Circles also cut the Night of Navy frame for the postage stamps.


The Night of Navy rectangle was cut to fit the circled stamps, the square and the card front. The Post Script background stamp would be perfect for my postage stamps, and I stamped it in Night of Navy ink on a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

I found “Special Delivery” in the retired Tin of Tags stamp set, and used a die from Bunch of Banners for cutting. The red strip beneath the rectangle is also retired, a piece of Watermelon Wonder DSP. It matched the red in the stamp, so I had to use it.


This was such a fun challenge! Thanks for the sketch, Rita!
