Frog Collage Card

Hi Friends,

I have to say, the combination of the Heartfelt Creations Flip Fold Inserts and any HC collection makes these kind of interactive cards so easy and fun to create.  It's just a matter of deciding on a theme -- and off you go!  I reach for them quite a lot now, what a time-saver!

 For this card, I selected one of the panel inserts from the Pocket and Flipfolds "B" package (HCFP1-434-1). This is a great package choice to have on hand to make cards (even if you're not a mini-album fan)!  I used the smallest panel in the set and accordion-folded it following the pre-scored lines.

I trimmed different papers into mats from the Winking Frog paper collection to cover each of the panels.  I didn't really even measure, I just aligned the papers next to each panel and made pencil marks where I wanted to cut them.  Obviously, you can certainly take the time to measure and you'd probably get a "neater" version than mine!

Next, I die cut several of the images directly from the papers - I just matched up the coordinating dies to the different characters and instantly had lots of fun images to work with on my card.  This is the best part of all - lots of fussy cutting results without the fussy cutting!

I also created some water lilies and lily pads and attached them with foam dots to add even more dimension on some of the panels.

The fun part was just adding all my die-cut images and my lily pad flowers to the panels and seeing the fun results come to life with very little effort!
There's just so many options and ways to use the different papers, dies, stamps and tools that HC has!  You can see lots more ideas on the HC Blog today - every one different, and each one inspiring and fun!  I hope you'll check it out!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed week!
