Today's card features a cute little birthday frog!
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and is folded at the top. The card is made from white card stock with a navy blue card stock mat, cut at 5 3/8"x4 1/8." The purple patterned mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8." The navy blue card stock strip is 2"x3 7/8." I embossed the strip with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I then covered the swirls with midnight blue Stickles.
The white mat is cut with a Spellbinders die. It is from the Labels 8 Nestabilities. I stamped my sentiment, which is from My Pink Stamper, on the top right of the mat. The image, from the Silhouette Store, is called "Birthday Frog" by PPbN Designs (#48459). The frog is about 3 3/4" tall, without the lily pad. I covered the lily pad and the frog's eyes with diamond glaze.
I finished the inside pretty much like the outside, sans blue embossed strip. The navy blue mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and the purple patterned mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8." The white mat is again cut with the Labels 8 Nestabilities die from Spellbinders. I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps for the "hope your birthday is" part of the sentiment. It is from the Amusing Animals set. The "unfrog-getable" part of the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper.
I made this for the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations: photo inspiration (party time)
Color Throwdown: color combo
The Friday Mashup: create a project with die cuts
Stuck On U Sketches: use a die cut that has to do with a party
