This week I thought I would share another card that I made based on an earlier card I had made. Plus I decided to
Here are the two cards:
As you can see I've made the "water" bigger than the lily pad just for a bit of contrast. I have then lined up the scallops (this isn't necessary) before piercing a hole in the two layers.
Next punch two flowers out & place together & put a brad in the centre. Then put the brad through the two layers of scalloped paper & open the prongs. You should be able to move the Lily pad (top smaller scallop) away from the bottom. Next step is to attach the frog.
This next step depends on the size of your stamp. After cutting around the stamped coloured image, I eyeball the size for the flap. I score about 1/4 inch from each end & apply double sided tape to the ends (on the same side of the c/s). I then work out how far up the stamped image I need to place the flap & adhere the flap to the image. After bending up the frogs legs I then attach the other end of the flap to the lily pad. Just to note it's a good idea to lay your image flat on the card to see if where you have placed it is in a good spot to fit inside an envelope :D (learnt that one the hard way ;P).
Have a great week everyone & happy crafting xoxoxoxo
