Our neighbor celebrated his 90th birthday recently. This is the card I made for him. The frog and greeting are both from the Close To My Heart new product line of stamps and "thin cuts" - die cuts that coordinate specifically with certain stamps and can be used with die cut hand-crank machines like Cuttlebug or Sizzix Big Kick. This set is Spring Critters and Thin Cuts. It was available through April. Most of these are so popular, they sell out before the end of the catalog run! The nicest thing about these coordinating sets is the ability to precisely cut the design - no more "fussy cutting" around a stamped image!!
Other supplies used include:
Confetti Wishes papers and complements (retired)
3D Springs (retired)
White Cards 4 1/2" x 5 1/4" (X254)
Inks - Black (Z2105), Sweet Leaf (Z2153)
Green Enamel and Glitter Duos (Z3123)
Shin Han Markers - Vivid Green (Z2466), Leaf Green (Z2454), Lt Orange (Z2455)
The 3D spring behind the frog gives it a nice bounce when it's pulled out of the envelope.
This was a quick, simple card and lots of fun to make. While the papers are retired, I still have lots left and will likely use it to make more of this happy little style! Thanks for joining me today.
