Pictures of Love featuring Creative Cafe's January kit of the month

Hey everyone!  Laura here for The Rubber Cafe' today bringing you a trendy Valentine card for a special someone using the Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month:
Polaroid frames are a hot trend, and a great way to create focal points in your crafting projects. And it's handy to have a stamp or template, but they are also very simple to make on your own.

My card base is made with Kraft cardstock and cut and scored to measure- 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" 
First layer is a 5 1/4" by 4" piece of red cardstock and adhered using Scrap Happy Glue.

To make the polaroids:

Cut a 2 1/2" by 3" piece of white cardstock, and then a 2 1/8" square.  Trace the square onto the rectangle piece like so:

Use your paper trimmer or a craft knife to cut out the center leaving the "polaroid" piece.  You can back the polaroid in a pattern you like (I used the hearts), then embellish. 

I used the heart clip with a piece of kraft cardstock behind it to make it "pop" and tied a few ribbons and twine onto the clip to create it as a focal point. 

The puppy dog and heart bubbles are colored with Copic Markers, cut out, then attached using foam tape.  The Valentine sentiment is stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento and added to the top of the right polaroid.  "You've Stolen My Heart" and the thin strip of heart paper with a rhinestone finish off the bottom of each polaroid piece.

Thanks for stoppin' by the Cafe' today!
