Today I am sharing a card using another of the Sparkle N Sprinkle January Reveal sets. This time it's the Sweetheart Frog, Set 677.
I received a couple of Sizzix Movers and Shapers at Christmastime and this card uses the Square Stand-Up one. These are fun to use and the card opens out and lays flat for mailing (if you don't add wobbles and Dimensional Dots like I did!). The little easel stop is already built in!
I stamped the froggy image in Black StazOn ink and then colored with an aqua brush and watercolor crayons. I cut and embossed the image with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, sponging on a little Memento Summer Sky before removing the die. I added Celestial Glitter (G1031) with a Sakura Glue Pen to the cattails.
The birds were added using a Darice Embossing Folder (Nature 3-pack). I ran the top piece of cardstock through the embossing machine which had been swiped with Memento London Fog, I then filled in the inside of the birds with a Copic marker - C5. Memento Summer Sky and London Fog were then directly applied to create the streaked sky effect. I carried the Summer Sky down to the base.
I ran another piece of the same blue through the embossing folder and cut and embossed with the one size larger oval to layer the frog image to. I attached the image with a Wobble to make it have a little more movement.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. I added a little pre-made flower to the tag, which was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Standard Tag and attached to the base with Dimensional Dots.
Hope you've enjoyed my Valentine Day's card share today. That special love day will be here before you know it!
