Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the cream Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.

Starting with the card piece

next take the frog pieces

using a pickup stick glue the blakc eye pieces on to the white eye pieces

then take the mouth and put glue on the back and glue it on the frog's face

then using foam dots place one on the back of each eye and place the eyes on the frog
