I’d like to introduce you to my froggy friend! This green cutie was salvaged from a giftbag from years ago – seriously, it must be at least 5-6 years ago! The design is actually on printed plasma, so it is quite rigid, and i knew that one day he would find himself on a card or other craft project. And today was his day!
I thought he would make a super cute MYM card, and i’m sure Randolph will love it, not to mention his Mummy Sarah.
The background paper is from a sizzix little sizzles watercolour paper pack, and I loved the wavy design that gives a watery effect. The little dragonfly stamp is from a Studio G 99p pack – i think i must have dozens of these little gems- i love ’em!
To make the lily pad, i used my We R Memory Keepers magnetic circle cutter to cut two arcs, then using scissors I cut out a triangle. Of course, I added a little Distress Ink for good measure – peeled paint worked a trick!
Best of all – the greeting is from one of the newest additions to my craft stash – the Hero Arts all occasion messages. I’ve been dreaming about these stamps for a while now – what a perfect birthday present!
To make it easy to write in the inside, I added a little label using petite ovals and Petite Scallop Ovals spellbinders dies, through my equally marvellously green Cuttlebug.
This card really does make me smile, i hope it has the same effect on you guys too!
Have a wonderful Monday, and I hope you get to have some crafty fun today!
