Instructions: Begin with a 6" x 6" white card base. Fold the top portion of the card down in half to meet the fold line to create the easel portion of your card. Die cut the decorative edge into the bottom portion of the card as shown. Cut the same decorative edge as a separate piece and set aside to be added to card later. Locate the 6" x 6" decorative premade card panels for the bottom and main portions of the card. Ink all edges using a brown colored ink. Adhere preprinted card panel to bottom of card base as shown. Cut a white 6" x 6" piece of white card stock, adhere separate decorative die cut to top and then second preprinted card panel over that. Fussy cut floral corners as shown on the bottom of the main image card panel. Ink all edges with a brown colored ink and adhere to bottom corners of main image card panel. Fussy cut sentiment strip, and die cut preprinted toadstool image from paper collection using coordinating die. Ink all edges with brown ink and add to top of card.

Using white card stock and black ink, stamp one of the leaping frogs images, one of the winking frogs on vine, one inking of the water lily and lily pads cling stamp set and one dragonfly. Color using distress markers, die cut using coordinating dies and then shape each embellishment using a spritz of water and the deluxe shaping tool kit. Using pop dots, adhere leaping frogs and frogs on vine to main card panel as shown. Adhere main card panel to easel portion of card and determine where to place lily pads with water lily so card is able to remain standing when open. Adhere lily pads and water lily as shown. Adhere dragonfly to floral cluster. Fussy cut varying sized dragonflies from the paper collection, ink all edges with a brown colored ink and adhere to card as shown, making the largest in the upper corner dimensional by adding a second shaped dragonfly over top. Add small shaped flowers to the vine where frogs are playing. Adhere pink Gala Glitz to flower centers, glitter to flower tips and any other flat elements on the card you desire, and yellow Stickles to lightning bugs.
