Hoppy Poppin' Frogs

On February 7, the Technique Lovers' Challenge was to create a Sliding Pop-Up card. What a fun sounding card!!! I had to try it.

Well, I think I had an 'attack of the stupids' because I just couldn't grasp all of the tutorial. I did, finally, get it done, though, and I like the result. I will do it again ... and HOPEFULLY this time, it won't take me nearly as long to complete the technique.

This is the card closed, the way it would be received. All of those great shapes are cut using the svg file for the Hoppy Frogs set.

Here's a close-up of that adorable frog. Doesn't he just make you smile?

This shows the complete card standing on it's own. I wanted that little frog to look as though he was so happy that he just had to throw all of those flowers in the air with excitement. Hope that's how he came across. The mushroom was cut from white paper and colored with Copics.

Another svg frog and flower were used on the sentiment layer. I just couldn't resist!! I wasn't sure if it would still close ok or not, but took the risk. It paid off. No issues closing it. I will remember that when I go to make another one!
