Isn't this frog -- with his endearing pleading eyes -- just the cutest? When I discovered this stamp in the February 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Sunshine & Smiles, I was immediately smitten. So I decided to make him the star of this card.

I wanted to capitalize on the circle aspect of his eyes, so added polka dots elsewhere on the card to echo this. We have his eyes, the spots on his skin, the polka dots on the Designer Series Paper, and then, of course, a smattering of sequins.

A closeup of all the polka dots:

Following is a quick tutorial on how to make a cute froggy card like mine.

White cardstock
Granny Apple Green cardstock
Dotted Designer Series Paper

Frog stamp from February 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Sunshine & Smiles

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Stampin' Blends in: Light and Dark Granny Apple Green and Light Daffodil Delight

Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Painted Labels Dies
All That Dies (page 162, Annual Catalog)
Amazing Thanks dies
Pool Party sequins
Stampin' Dimensionals

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

To this card base, add a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock.

With even margins at the top and sides, add a 3 3/4" x 3" piece of dotted Designer Series Paper.

On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp the frog in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Color him in as desired.

Using a scalloped circle die that measures 2" in diameter, cut out the frog. Add a few sequins around the frog.

Use the open circle die from the Painted Labels dies with Granny Apple Green cardstock. Adhere the frog piece to this. Using a couple Stampin' Dimensionals, add this to the center of the dotted paper.

From white cardstock, cut the large portion of the "thanks" and then cut the narrow portion of the word from Granny Apple Green cardstock. Adhere the two parts together and add the word to the green portion at the bottom of the card.

  1. He is just the cutest! I love the added dots to bring attention to all things round on this card and that green is a very eye popping color too which just ups the cuteness factor.
