Check out these super-special Polaroid-themed greeting cards by Heather Champ. They’re made using two dark slides from expired Polaroid 600 film:
The five colour bars (celebrating the new PX 70 packaging) create a negative space heart surrounded by the idea of a instant film frame.
Once the front dark slide is cross-stitched, the front and back are dry mounted with rubber cement to folded white card stock. The inside is blank. The card is accompanied by a matching blank white envelope.
Try making these yourself as a do-it-yourself project. If arts and crafts isn’t your thing, you can buy them for a special Polaroid-lover in your life for $25 from Heather’s Etsy store.
Here’s a neat birthday card idea for the Polaroid or photography lovers in your life: make a hand-drawn Polaroid camera spit out a real instant photo! Kayla Davis received this card from her friend Chrissie for her 19th birthday.
Do I have the most awesome friend or what? My friend Chrissie made me this birthday card. It’s one of the coolest cards I’ve ever gotten!
If you’re ambitious, try taking it to the next level by making the card a “pop-up” card that has a 3D camera. That would be something.
