Froggie Pop-up Box

Hello, everyone! Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Moira Curle - so nice to have you here! Today I am sharing a pop-up box card! No kitties today! I made this for a family member who likes frogs!  This is only the second box card I've made, and the first one was a couple of years ago. I had to search Google and watch videos to figure it out! Warning:  Lots of photos! I wanted to share each section!


I searched through my stash for all of my frog images! The cute Frog with Heart is from Gerda Steiner Designs and it was a freebie at one point (thank you!).  I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  I added clear Wink of Stella on the heart and Glossy Accents on his eyes and heart.  I also added some freckles with a black gel pen.

The Frog Prince is from Tiddly Inks Froggie Thoughts, and this is also a freebie (thank you!), still available! I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and added gold Wink of Stella to his crown and Glossy Accents to his eyes.


The patterned paper is from Forever in Time. I die-cut Impression Obsession Cattails and inked them with Distress Inks. I added a few Jolee's frog stickers, sparkly dragonfly from Forever in Time, and some butterfly and flower gel stickers. The grass die-cuts in the middle of the box were leftovers from another project.


The two photos above show the box when it's open and on display - I love how it turned out! Next I'll share each part individually.


Above I used a fun sentiment from Scribbles Designs called Time's Fun. I stamped a Lawn Fawn Word Bubble and cut with the coordinating die. The frog is a puffy sticker and I added three fly images from Insectox.


The Cute Vintage Frog and Vintage Dragonflies above are freebies from Graphics Fairy (thank you!). I fussy-cut and covered the frog with Glossy Accents. Two strips of green washi tape were added.


The adorable pre-coloured frog is from Cre8ive Hands and was a freebie at one point (thank you!). I fussy-cut and added Glossy Accents to his eyes.  The heart and word bubble are from Lawn Fawn.


Above is a gorgeous image from Beccy's Place called Frog and Oleander.  I used the pre-coloured image and fussy-cut.  The word bubble/sentiment die-cut was a leftover from a previous project (sentiment from Doodle Pantry Bunny Wabbit and word bubble from Lawn Fawn). The grass die-cut is also left-over from a previous project and I inked it with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. The dragonfly is from Impression Obsession Cattails and I inked with Distress Inks.


The above frog was a freebie a few years ago from From the Pond, and I used the pre-coloured version and fussy-cut.  The sentiment and word bubble are from Lawn Fawn.


Above is a puffy frog sticker and dragonfly gem. Below shows how the box all folds up and fits inside an A2 envelope. I know the recipient is going to love this!


One last look at the pop-up elements:
