Summery Frog Card by Lorena


Hello, SRM friends! Lorena here with a card perfect for Summer. I had a lot of fun creating this one, and I even got some help from my husband! He has amazing drawing skills, so when I want to modify a stamped image, he's my go to person.

For this card, I wanted the adorable frog from SRM's Jane's Doodles Garden Friends stamp set to sit on a leaf floating in the middle of a tiny pond. So I stamped the frog on white cardstock and he drew the leaf and the pond around the critter. How cute is the resulting image? I then colored everything with Copic markers and trimmed around.

The sentiment comes from Sentiment/Summer stickers sheet, which is full of great sayings for this time of the year. I die cut a banner form patterned paper and adhered the sticker, which fit perfectly.

Finally, I partially embossed a card base to add a bit of texture to the card and adhered two strands of baker's twine in Peapod. I like how the stripes in the twine frame the froggie as he relaxes in the pond :)

And that's it! I hope you're enjoying your Summer as much as this little green friend. Thanks for visiting!
