Un-FROG-ettable Birthday card (with DIY action wobble!)

This blog has moved to a new & improved location!  Please visit this page at the new location by clicking here.

I made this card for my good friend, Jeannie.  

One frog & lily pad was cut on the Cricut (Create A Critter cartridge).  

The secong frog & lily pad were cut on the Silhouette Cameo:

The Cricut lily pad was then embossed with the Sizzix Damask folder.  For the Silhouette frog (right front), I sprayed the lily pad with Perfect Pearls mist - Pearl & added a pink, flower gromlet from Recollections. 

The inside frog was also cut from the Silhouette:

To mount the frog on the inside top, I made my own action wobble by winding some thin florist wire (from Michael's) around a thin pen & taping one end to the card & one end to the back of the frog.  Added 7mm Googly Eyes to all frogs.  

The frog on the inside bottom was from SilhouetteOnline.  But instead of cutting it, I took a screen cap & simply printed it on the paper.  The butterfly on right was a stamp.  Font is Curlmudgeon.
