Hi everyone! Welcome to the PTI blog hop. This month the theme was to make a masculine card, which was especially fun given that last month's release was all about masculine stamp sets. For this challenge, I decided to use the new Boy Basics Frog stamp set that Nichole introduced. I absolutely love this stamp! It is a larger version of a small stamp that is in the Tiny Treats Valentine stamp set. The set came with a matching lily pad and a fly, as well as two cute matching sentiments. I have to say that for this card I was truly inspired by one of the release projects Nichole Heady made with this adorable stamp set!
To create the background for this card, I stamped the new Boy Basics circles on a piece of green cardstock from Michaels. I used Versa Mark Ink and I really love how it came out. I then punched out a large white circle using a Marvy Punch. I die cut the frog and lilly pad on white paper and colored them in with Copic Markers. I stamped one of the matching sentiments from the set on the bottom of the circle. I then attached the lily pad directly to the white circle. I added the frog with a few pop up dots to give the card some dimension. I then added two small googly eyes to the frog. Finally, I stamped the image of the fly on the white circle. Before adhering the circle to the card front, I die cut a double ended banner die, which is also from PTI. I stamped this is green with the Gingham stamp set. I attached this strip to the card front, and then placed the central image on top.
I hope you enjoy!
