Kiss Me! Card
I just received a couple of new Valentine Stamp sets from Mary at CardzTV. When I saw the Kiss Me! stamp I knew I had to do a frog card. Here is what I came up with.
I started with a piece of Kraft card stock, cut, scored, and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" portrait card. I added a pink mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5". The polka dotted patterned paper is from a K & Company Valentine paper pack I bought last year. The frog is from Create-a-Critter and is found on page 24. I cut the frog and all his layers at 3 1/2". I also cut the heart from the Create-a-Critter cartridge and it is found under the Accessories on page 36 of the handbook. I cut the heart at 4 1/2". Once I assembled the frog I adhered him to the front of my card with some foam tape. I added cotton candy stickles to his cheeks and red stickles to his heart. I also used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching around the card and the frogs tummy and some doodle dots on the frog. I stamped my sentiment with some Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and added a couple of red buttons. I also added the googly eyes that my friend Lynn sent me. I love the little eyelashes on the eyes. Makes the frog look a bit flirty don't you think? Thanks for visiting.
