Toad-ally Missing You Card

OWH has put out a call for missing you cards with a specific emphasis on kid friendly ones.  I had just cut out these cute little frogs with the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and had planned to use them with a You Are Toad-ally Awesome sentiment but changed it over to the the missing you theme.  I embossed the frogs with some polka dots in my Texture Boutique Machine using a cheapo Darice polka-dot embossing folder and then mounted them on action wobbles.  I made twelve A2 sized cards total but used three different backgrounds - one girly, one for a boy, and the third can be used for either.  Here is the girly one:

The pattern paper is from The Girlhood Stack from DCWV and the solid papers are all from Core'dinations.  The frog is cut at 2.5" and the pattern paper is cut at 5 1/4" x 4".  I printed the sentiment out using Word with a free font called American Typewriter.  The sentiment is cut at 2" x 1" and mounted on a Cricut cut from that same cartridge cut at 2.5" x 1.5".  I'm just starting to figure out all these little extras on these cartridges and I think it's making my cards look nicer.  I also just picked up some White Jelly pens and have started using them to add dimension to my cuts.  I just popped a little white dot in each eye of the frog and I think it adds a lot.

I'm going to see how many missing you cards I can get done this weekend and then get a small package shipped off to OWH.
