You're 'Toadally' awesome!


Hello, my crafty friends!  I have another simple card for you using the Build A Valentine stamp set!


The card base is  4 by 4 inches.  There are lots of cute frogs on various cartridges, but this toad was cut at 3 inches from the Mini Monsters cartridge.


 I used glossy accents on his eyes, mouth and spots.


The little dragon fly was cut at 1 inch from the Create a Critter cartridge. I cut the wings (cut 2) from blue velum and I covered the wings with a blue glitter glue.  This makes the vellum wings curl, but they flatten a bit as they dry.  I also used Glossy accents on the dragon fly's body.  Click HERE to see video showing how I made the dragon fly to use on a different card.


I tied some Caribbean Bakers Twine around the card just for fun.

Have a great day!

  1. Your frog is adorable. I love the touches of glossy accents. The use of vellum for the dragonfly's wings is such a good idea. I have yet to try cutting vellum with my Cricut. Great work.
