You are Toadally awesome

Hi friends! Happy Huuuump Day, is what the camel says! LOL, hope you’re having a good week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! And I’m back this morning with another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release. This CAS-ish birthday card showcases the handsome Spinach from the Frog Pals stamp set and of course the coordinating Frog dies. So fun!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner on all of them. I stamped Spinach from the Frog Pals stamp set on a scrap piece of Basis White cardstock in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink, cut him with the coordinating Frog dies, and colored him with alcohol markers. I created a mini scene with stamped cattails and greenery, a sun and a dragonfly, colored them with alcohol markers, and added Spinach and a sentiment to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Frog Pals stamp set and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! Spinach sure made a Toadally awesome birthday card! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
