Hey cardmaking friends, Sandi MacIver here and today I have P Party at the Pond to share with you created with the Drop by to say Croak stamp set.

This is one of my Favorites from the June release and they are so fun to color.

Creating the Slimline Card for A day at the Pond:

Cut the card base from Hammermill white, 7 x -1/2, score and fold at 3-1/2.

Die cut the card front using the Slim Line Nested Rectangles Dies. I love the fine stitched detail the die provides around the edge of the piece. (you need two of these).

Next, use the circle die from the Scallop Frames Die set and cut three circles across the card front.

Lay the circles piece over the second card front and lightly mark the outside of the circles with a pencil.

Use the Life Changing Blending Brushes to add Mermaid Lagoon and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks where the circles will overlay.  This creates the sky and the pond for the card.

Trim that back piece slightly before gluing them together. handmade slimline card with three little frogs in cat tails with products from Picket Fence Studios

Creating the Pond Scene

Die cut the Slim line short tall grass die in green for across the bottom front.

Die cut the Cattails Die and watercolor.

Cut the cat tails into 3 pieces and attach them to the card front, sliding the bottom section in behind the circles in front. 

Allow the tops to stick outside the circles.

Glue the grass down along the front bottom.

Use the Misti stamping tool to stamp the frogs onto white card, color with copics and die cut them out.

Use foam squares to attach them to the card front, one in each circle.

White heat emboss the sentiment onto a scrap of black card and attach across the middle.

Embellish with purple and green sequins

P.S.  This cute card is sitting on a Green Slimline Envelope also from Picket Fence Studios
