Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is themed around Father’s Day, next Sunday in the UK, and is for a Special Man. Because we don’t all still have our Father’s we are happy for anything created for a special man in your life.
My card was created for my Brother In Law’s Birthday. I used papers from Basic Grey on a black card which I made using the Spellbinders Card Creator Happy Day die. By the way those levels of pink, lemon etc on the steps aren’t actually there. It’s the chiffon background showing through the gaps!
My stamps and matching dies are all from Heartfelt Creations’ Winking Frog range.
The main and largest image is Fiddle’n Frog, the others were from the Leaping Frogs stamp and die set, which consists of two borders one of the toadstools and the other of the frogs, which I stamped, coloured and cut and then trimmed into seperate sections. The little bees are from Froggy Frame stamp/die combo which was a Create and Craft exclusive set.
Because the main card and the layers were diecut, and I didn’t fancy cutting out seperate mats, I did some faux stitching with a white pen to give a bit more definition to the layers.
I love Heartfelt products. This card cleverly folds flat for postage, but as my BIL only lives three streets away that wasn’t a problem. The sentiment is also from Fiddle’n Frog stamp set.
