Froggy Cheats

I have a couple of really quick cards to share today. Inspired by this week's 'Stickers' challenge over at Less is More, I hunted out an old sheet of Penny Black Stickeroos called 'Pond-side Celebrations'. I stuck the frog stickers on to some scraps of white card, then carefully cut around them, then mounted them on to my cards using 3D foam. I found some washi tapes in co-ordinating colours, and simply added a few strips behind the images, and stamped sentiments from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.




Challenges for these cards:
  • As You Like It - Favourite Shaped Card Base (Tent-folded A6...I used to be all about square cards, but I've come back to this size/shape of card (which I used lots when I first started card-making) recently...I think I find the 'white space' less intimidating on this shape when I make CAS cards!)
  • Less is More - Stickers/Sticky Labels/Peel Offs
  • Little Red Wagon - Happy Birthday
  • Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
  • Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
