Kathy writes: "When I first saw this frog stamp I immediately wanted to create something fun and exciting with it and what could be more fun and exciting than a baby announcement? I love the surprise of a pocket card and this happy frog needed to be front & center on one. This is a standard A2 size card [5 1/2" x 4 1/4"]; I cut the card stock 4 1/4" x 9", scored at 3 1/2", top corners rounded. Before stitching the card on 3 sides, I adhered a 1" piece of patterned paper to the front, wrapped 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around it & tied on bows. I stamped the frog on white cardstock, colored, cut out & paper pieced him, adding google eyes, then finished the card by stamping on 'Jumping for Joy'. The tag is 3 7/8" x 4 1/2" with top corners cut, then inked all around. I stamped the announcement stapled a piece of ribbon on top. All the frogs on Simon Says Stamp's 'Jumping for Joy' set make me smile and I hope you enjoy this pocket card as much as I enjoyed making it! "
