Getting back into the crafting studio, I just wanted to make something lighthearted. Time snuck up on me this week and I completely forgot to send out a card for my grandpa's 75th birthday. Woops!
My design aesthetic really vacillates between distressed/vintage and cute and punny. I have some great frogs...but I don't remember which company they are from (they were a garage sale find). They have some great froggy pun sentiments to go with them:
I used this awesome sketch from My Favorite Things latest sketch challenge.
I cut one-inch squares and stamped a variety of frogs, rearranging their placement with each square. Then I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and arranged them alternately with some striped green paper. I embossed the saying with white powder and fussy cut another little frog, popping his eyes with some glossy accents.
Lastly, for the inside I used another pun. I think my grandpa will appreciate the humor, considering I've dubbed him the "King of Corn". His jokes are just terrible! For instance, this is one of his favorite:
Who is the most famous knight in Pancake Land?
The answer to the joke is: Sir Up (Syrup... Get it?)
Like I said... King of Corn. But I love him!
I am also going to enter this into the following challenges:
