I had so much fun making this card. I adore the frog stickers from The Robin's Nest. I started by cutting a 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock and scoring it at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6" and 8 1/4" and folding it by using the mountain valley folds technique. I cut out the frogs and lily pads and layed them aside. Next, I cut a 4 1/2" x 1"piece of Light Grey Watercolor Hammered paper and adhered it to the front fold. I, then, used the green velvet ribbon from The Robin's Nest and cut a piece to fit the width of the card and glued it on. I cut a small piece of the watercolor paper and rounded the corners and put the "toadally awesome" sticker on it. I, then, adhered one of the blue Sea Glass Tear Drops to it and adhered the message over the ribbon. I put the frog on and 3 of the Fresh Mowed Grass Dew Drops under the frog to look like he was sitting on the rocks. After that, I punched the waves on using a border punch and the Blue Raspberry Glittered Cardstock from The Robin's Nest and put it on the second fold of the card. Lastly, I cut a 5" x 2" piece of the Light Grey Watercolor Hammered Paper and adhered it to the last fold. I placed the large frog and lily pads onto the corners and used some more Fresh Mowed Grass Dew Drops and Dew Dew Glue to put in between the two stickers to represent rocks. I have been so excited to share this card with all of you and hope that you will jump on over to The Robin's Nest to get the items to make one yourself and while you are there be sure to check out all of the great products the store carries!

Toadally Awesome Card
I love making new things and inspiring others to create them, too. . I’ve been creating since I was young, but became really serious about my creating in 2007 and in 2008 joined my first design team. I have enjoyed being on several teams since then. The winter of 2012, I had 4 projects on display at CHA with 2 different design teams I was on. I am always striving to learn new things or find different ways of creating things and sharing them with others. I have designed stamps, a chip board album and matching chipboard pieces for Sin City Stamps.
