I really love how this card turned out! A little labor intensive, but worth it!! I started by using the TAWS set Framed. I inked up the large Polaroid frame in black ink and stamped it on white card stock. Next i cut out the frame, along with the inside part of the frame. Then i used the Birch trees from the new Branching Out. I stamped them a couple times next to each other on white card stock with black ink. I also stamped the lone tree by itself on another piece of card stock.

To color the trees i colored a clear block with a brown Distress Marker, added a little water and with a paint brush colored the trees. Next i cut out the lone tree. I set these aside, to stamp the Moose from the new Moosing You set. I colored him up with Copic Markers, then cut him out.

Next up i had to assemble everything. I started by adhering the lone Birch tree to the back of the frame, so you could see it through the Polaroid frame. I did the same thing with the moose. Then i added foam tape to the back of the frame, tree and moose. Pulling out the row of stamped birched trees i adhered the frame with the tree and moose attached, over the row of trees. I trimmed off the excess card stock.

Now that i have this 3D Polaroid, i needed to put it on a card base. I thought that a white background was a too plan, so i used a Simon Says Stamp stencil. I placed it over a white card base and then used the same brown Distress Marker to sketch the stencil. By sketch i mean that i used the fine tip to add color to the open spaces of the stencil. Then i went back with the other tip to color the circles.

Last i added the Polaroid frame to my card base. But at this point i thought the card sure had a lot of brown. So to add a little color i stamped the bird from the Moosing You set, colored him red, cut him and added him to sit on the moose.
