I had to come up with a birthday card for a party my girls are going to...I immediately thought of this super cute frog from PTI Boy Basics: Frog Hop...Can you say Cute & Bargain? The stamp set was only $5 and the die cut was $5...$10 for the two!!! I have already made so many cards with this set its ridiculous! Anywho...the party is for a super sweet neighbor girl...so I hado pair the frog with pretty pink paper and a girly doily. I die cut the frog from DSP and then stamped her and colored in her eyes with my white Sakura pen...googly eyes would have been a great idea...but I didn't have any. I also die cut the lilypad and stamped it as well.
The background paper is a technique I have been using a lot of lately...I foundit on Gina K's Stamp TV website...you take a piece of DSP and emboss it with your Cuttlebug folder...then you take your TH Distress Ink with the blending foam and highlight the embossing. For this card I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder and then highlighted it wil TH Distresss Ink in Tattered Rose. The background paper was from SU! and it was from an very old retired line...but it has a delicate pink/white polka dot and very fine red swirl running thoughout it...I absolutely LOVE the way this card came out.Pin It
