Charming Birthday Card

Frog Prince Birthday Card

Sometimes you’re trolling Pinterest and you run across a card you MUST copy, and that’s just what I did;) Susie Wood is the original creator of this adorable birthday card and I just can’t stop admiring it. One of the huge bonus’ about this charming frog is you can give it to male or female, young or experienced and they would love it, and…it’s super fast and easy to put together. Make this one in bulk and you’ll never be desperate for the perfect card again.

Begin with the new Granny Apple Green card stock base add the two strips of black/white checked from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, layer your Basic Black square.  Stamp and color the frog and fly with Stampin’ Write Markers onto Whisper White card stock, add the Basic Black Triangle, adhere to the Granny Apple square, back the Granny Apple with dimensionals and adhere to the Basic Black.

I created the sentiment on my computer because I don’t have a “hoppy birthday” stamp. Use your 1 1/8 & 1 3/8ths scallop circle to cut out the sentiment.

For the final touch add a tied piece of Granny Apple ribbon to the Basic Black triangle.

The inside is just a strip of the Botanical Butterfly DSP attached to a Whisper White square.

Because I didn’t have a square envelope in my stash I made my own by following the instructions on my super cool envelope punch board.
