Recently Sparkle N Sprinkle had a blog hop featuring “Fantastic Folds”. I had so much fun doing this, trying some new folds and refreshing some old folds. May card today is an older fold that I had not used for quite awhile, combined with a technique to create a background.
This card uses the cute little frog and sentiment from SNS’s new Just Froggy set. I created a “lily pad” for the sentiment by trimming a die cut circle. I colored the little frog by pressing the stamped image into two different dye inks I smooshed onto a craft pad and lightly spritzed with water. I dried it with a heat tool and cut it out.
The background is created by pressing the round sponge tip of a white distress stain onto green cardstock and drying with a heat tool. Then I doodled with a glue pen and added Meadow Spark glitter to create a fun frame.
Now for the fun fold. Check out this cute inside. I added a cute dragonfly with sparkly Waterscape glitter wings and a cattail my sweet friend, Kim, cut out for me with her electronic cutter. The sentiment is cut out with a label die and popped up with dimensionals. As far as this cute froggy fold……please join me on Sunday, Feb. 3rd on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for a full turtorial.
Well, I am off to a stamp convention this weekend with my friends, Cheryl and Susan, and will get to meet two of my fellow SNS designers. I know we will have a great time.
See you on Sunday!!
