Updated February 15, 2018: The digital store Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps & More is no longer in business.  

    Today’s tutorial is a Spring theme Side-Step fold card using the Five Little Froggies digital stamp image from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps & More.  Aren’t the smiles on these froggies just warm your heart?   We have quite a few froggies in our backyard pond though they don’t look quite as cute as these little froggies.

    About The Card

     This is a 4.25×5.50 Side Step card. I started first by creating the side step card base. The frame part of the card is 3.50 x 4.25.  Next, I opened up Microsoft Word (version 2013), pulled in “Five Little Froggies” image and resized to 3.25 inch in height.  Then print on copic blending paper.
    The image was colored with copics. I then sponged with distressed ink a jungle green on the ground for the grass bed as well in between each steps for the shadow effect.

    I used the following dies to decorate the steps:

    Impression Obsession Dies:  two Reading Tree were cut from two different shade of green cardstock;  Tiny Flowers were cut from different color cardstocks and adhesive randomly onto the trees with glossy accents;  in between each steps I adhesive a bunch of Grass Border using two different shade of green cardstock.
    The white Arbor Fence is from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment is n old digi stamp which I can’t recall from where.
