Cricut Toadally Cool Card

Cricut Toadally Cool Card
Quick and Easy card Monday

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today's Bitten By the Bug challenge called for a project with a frog on it. I had no idea what to do with this. Frogs are definitely not in my wheel house. As a lover of puns and cute phrases, I thought I would start with a sentiment and work my way to the frog. 

The frog was cut from Live Simply and the shape on which he sits is from Artiste. The sentiment was stamped using two font stamp sets. 'Toadally' was stamped using the Glamour Lowercase stamp set. 'Cool' was stamped with A Typeface. I never thought I would start making my own sentiments like this. It is starting to really grow on me! It used to be a daunting task, but I am starting to get the hang of it. 

If you have an Explore, here is the file: Cricut Toadally Cool Card

If you do not have an Explore, here are the approximate sizes:

frog (Live Simply) - 2.75"
frame (Artiste) - 3.75"

Frogs are also not in my wheelhouse either…I kind of did the same thing as you and came up with the sentiment first, then the rest of the project! Definitely stretched my creativity out, which is probably a good thing. Love the sentiment you used and the fonts you stamped it with. And froggy is quite cute!
