Homemade cards are fun to make and also great to receive as a little bit of the one who makes it goes into the colors and thoughtfulness of the card. Make this fun card using your Cricut and card stock and brighten someones day.
If you have an embossing machine and embossing folders you can give the card a little more detail by embossing the cream rectangle.
Another project you can create with the frog is a cute shirt for a little one. Just add your own wording and you got a cute shirt.

Cutting Out the Hoppy Birthday Frog Card
Unzip the download file.
Then open up Design Space and start a new project.
Click Upload and find where you saved the unzipped version of the downloaded files for this project.
Then go into the SVG Folder and select the SVG Files
Select all and
next select the dotted line
change from basic cut to score line
then select the card and the score line
and click on
Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear
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.
Assembling the Hoppy Birthday Frog Card
Starting with the card piece
fold the card in half on the score line
next take the cream rectangle
if you have an embossing machine and folder that is spring related, then emboss this piece
I used a leafy vine embossing folder to emboss mine
then put double sided tape on the back of the cream rectangle and place on the front of the card (see photo below)
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
then using foam dots and strips put them on the back of the frog and place the frog in the middle of the cream rectangle
next take the hoppy birthday wording pieces
using glue and the pickup stick glue the top layer of letters on to the yellow layer center each letter
then take foam dtos and put on the back of the yellow wording and and place it on top of the green wording
then put foam dots/strips on the back of the green wording and place it on the card
