Frog Pals Spinach & Ramona

 Hi crafty friends!  Kim here from KimKreates to share this cheerful card starring the adorable Spinach and Ramona! 

I loved staying with my grandparents when I was a child!  My grandpa had a stuffed frog that was always on the pillows of their bed.  When he passed away, my grandma gave me the frog because she knew how much I loved it.  When I saw the Frog Pals Spinach and Ramona stamp set, I knew I needed to create with it! 

I started with a white base cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2" to create a top fold card.  I wanted to use a blue and yellow color pallet, so I dug through my stash for some fun papers, and I trimmed them to the following sizes: 

Yellow card stock - 5 1/4" x 4"

Blue card stock - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Blue plaid paper - 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" 

Yellow patterned paper - 1 1/2" x 3 5/8"

Blue card stock - 3 1/8" x 4 1/8"

White card stock - 3" x 4"

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and allowed the ink to dry completely.  I colored my images with Copic Markers (colors listed below).  I used the coordinating Frog Dies to cut out the images and I set them aside. 

Using the 3" x 4" panel, I placed the lily pad onto the panel with removable adhesive and traced around it lightly with a pencil.  I removed the lily pad from the panel, and I began to color my water using Copic Markers, starting with a darker outline closest to the lily pad and moving to a lighter shade, the further away it got. 

I stamped my sentiment in the upper left corner of the white panel in black ink, and I set about to creating my card. 

I adhered the yellow and blue cardstock and the blue and yellow patterned paper together, in that order.  I wrapped a piece of white seam binding around them and adhered to the back.  Using liquid adhesive, I glued those layers down to the front of my card base and then adhered the blue and white panel to the top. Once I had my card built, I arranged my stamped images and glued them in place.  Lastly, I tied a bow from my seam binding and attached it to the card front using a glue dot.
