Simon Says Stamp - August 2021 Card Kit, Toadally Unfrogrettable



Announcement, I now like frogs, or at least the frogs in Simon Says Stamp's Toadally Unfrogettable Card Kit. It's bursting with cuteness and froggies!

All of the card kit goodies came with another Mesh Bag (I got one in the July Kit too), so you know my little storage loving heart is happy. :-)

This kit is packed with cuteness: a Toadally Unfrogettable Stamp Set, a Pinpoint Starlets Embossing Folder, a Build A Frog Pond Stencil, patterned paper, solid cardstock, acetate, adhesive foam, embellishments....must I say more!




I got brave a made a shaker card and a pair of cards that showcase the fun Fern & Willard Custom Paper Pad that comes in the kit. I took a few photos along the way to guide you if you want to give these cards a try.

Key Steps:

  7. Place some of the Trinity Frog Sprinkles on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of the yellow checkered patterned paper to gauge how much you want to see behind the acetate panel

  8. Mount the green embossed cardstock to the yellow patterned cardstock to create the shaker and adhere to a card base

Fussy cut and foam tape mount the 3 butterflies and adhere to the card front. Add a couple of dashes to create a path linking all the cute bugs.
