Kiss Me, I'm Irish!
*** Okay, so here's what I did (and trust me when I tell you- the picture does NOT do my card justice. I had to take it with my phone) I hope you find it as easy as I did.
cardtock: Kraft, yellow, light green, medium green, dark green, gold, red
cuttlebug folder: paisley
cricut cartridges: once upon a princess, plantin schoolbook
white gel pen
pop dots (I used foam squares)
Studio G stamp "kiss me I'm Irish"
brown offray ribbon 1/4" wide
paper- "Simply Delightful" by My Mind's Eye.
dark green stamp pad.
I started with kraft card stock. folded it into a standard A2 sized card, 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
I cut my medium green cardstock to 5 1/4" x 4" and ran that through the cuttlebug. I then inked around the edges with the dark green stamp pad. I cut the striped paper at 5 1/4 x 2 1/2. I inked around the edges in the green stamp pad, and adhered it with my ATG gun to the green cardstock.
I then took the brown ribbon and wrapped it around that at the bottom of the striped paper, and taped it to the back (to hide the break line from the paper to stock). I then ATG glued it down to my card stock.
I cut out the frog at 2 1/4 inches for it all and cut the lips at 3/4". I chalked around all the edges to add dimension and adhered it using my Zig 2 way glue pen.
I then added pop dots to the back of the frog and placed him on the card.
Next, I stamped my sentiment in dark green on the same green as the frog, and matted it to the yellow, after chalking around both. it too is on pop dots.
finally, I did a line-dot around the edge of the kraft stock with a white gel pen.
