Pond Frogs


Hi, Marybeth here!  I wanted to use these adorable frogs again.  I made a CAS card on my blog in the past, but this time wanted to make a shaker card with more color. 


I  water colored my base layer,  added a layer of Fun Foam( from any craft store) with each pond frog, or you could cut 3 layers for each frog. I just love these little guys! Perfect for someone with a Leap Year birthday.


Here is a sample of the layers I cut out using the :Create Beautiful Dies from memory box . I cut two layers of the Shaker ...one of fun foam and one paper.  I cut two layers of the Studio Rectangle, one clear and one white card stock .  I used score tape to adhere all layers. 


This is just to show you how I layered my layers. Last minute I decided I didn’t need the tab so I cut it off, and sanded it just a bit. 


When I saw the: Sparkle Star Burst die I saw conffetti and knew I would be using the dots in my  shaker cards . I added about a 1/2 teaspoon of beads. The new Create Beautiful dies make this project so easy with no measuring.

Take Care

Holy smokes Marybeth! You just sold thousands of those frog dies. They were pretty enticing before I saw this, but versions of this card will show up all over the planet. Right about now, Poppy Stamps is congratulating themselves (yet again) on snaring you for their design team.
