Oh Pretty Frog
This is a card I made last year but thought you might like to see!!!
It was a sheet again bought from www.craftsuprint.co.uk
I signed up as a card maker for CUP hence buying and making so many crafts u print sheets!!!
Anyway this is among my favorite cards - why? I really cannot pinpoint the answer to that!
Anyway, here is the card...and this is how I made it!
I used a 6x6 butterfly printed card - the card was pale blue with a darker butterfly design
I cut out the main panel and attached to the card with double sided tape, then added a glitter edge to the panel by placing double sided tape around the design, removed the backing and then sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
I built up the simple decoupage as I cut it out and shaped the top piece to add dimension....
To the left edge I used 3 mid green and 2 pale yellow paper flowers - the green were attached at top middle and bottom then the yellow one in the 2 missing spaces!
A pale lilac card candy was attached to the centre of the flowers using a tiny sticky pad.
To finish this sparkly card I coloured the heart and dots on the frog using a glitter pen then spent ages using Eucalyptus Stickles to fill in all the dots on the background...
All together this card took around 90 minutes to complete which seems a long time but the card was a joy to make and I wanted to be sure the stickles filled the dot completely and stood proud without spilling out!!!
