I used: Certainly Celery (card base and 1 piece 3 x 4 1/8), Close to Cocoa ( 3 1/2 x 4 5/8) and DP (2 7/8 x 4), all from SU. The ribbon is Old Olive poly twill which is amazing...so soft!! This is a great card for those small images!
Here is what you do: Using the 1 1/4" punch, punch a hole in the small piece of celery paper. Using the 1 3/8" punch, punch a slightly larger hole in the DP (being careful to line them up so it looks like a frame. Stamp your image on white (2 1/2" square) and attach it to the back of the small celery piece with pop dots. Attach the small celery piece to the small Close to cocoa with pop dots as well, then attach all of that to the celery cardbase. I masked the saying from the stamp when I stamped the frog, then masked the frog when I stamped the saying. I punched the saying out with the SU Word Window punch and attached it with a glue dot.
I hope that makes sense!!! If not, email me and I can try to explain it better!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

I have a table at a Farmer's Market in the small town that I grew up in, every Thurs. night - tomorrow night is the first one, so I've been prepping Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation cards. Although I don't feel 100% prepared, I hope I sell what I have!! Wish me luck!! I just finished 2 Mother's Day cards using the Women of Life set by Papertrey Ink. I will post them later, still have to take pics of them!!! Wish me luck tomorrow night - I need to make some money to pay for these dang supplies!!!! LOL

I'm sorry the photo is so dark - I used natural light, but guess it wasn't "light" enough!! I'll figure it out one day!!! The card base is Elegant Eggplant & there is one layer of Handsome Hunter - both SU. The stamp set is Merci, which was a Sale-a-bration set from SU. I added stickles and primas too! I kept the outside rubber from the die cut stamps and used it to mask the butterfly so there was an "aura" around it!!!
Anyways, I hope Kimmie likes this one!!! :)

Here is the card opened - with a pop up golfer (Golfafella). I left the inside blank in case they didn't want to use it for Father's Day - it could be any type of card for a golfer. I've never made a pop up card - it was easy & kinda fun!! I could see myself making more kids' cards like this...they'd love it!!!
Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was good, busy....but worth it!! Friday night I stamped with friends for a few hours, then Sat. I went out to the Stampers Celebration in Airdrie with a couple friends - that was cool! We spent 3 hours there and there were only 7 vendors! THOUSANDS of stamps, new products, supplies, paper...it was awesome!! I spent a "little" bit of money (THANKS DONELDA!!!) but am happy with my purchases!! Now to find the time to play!!!! Today was my niece's First Communion then my whole family got together at my sister's acreage and sat outside in the sun! What a glorious day!! Wasn't too long ago I was complaining about the snow!!! NOW, I'm exhausted and NEED to clean my craft room before I can play with my new glitter!! Can't wait to share what I create!!!
