Frog Card


This little leather frog (toad?) has been sitting on my desk for quite some time now. I think he arrived with a pair of shoes (human not frog). I tend to keep anything that might make a card for a man as I always find it difficult to find inspiration for them. Paul has just claimed that the last sentence should have stopped after the first five words  but honestly I'm not that bad! I don't have a lot of time to make anything today as I have had a crochet class at Connie's the craft cafe in Weston-super-mare  but I do need a couple of cards.
I sat and played with the frog for a while and decided he'd make a great bookmark so I drew round him to get a template for the card and then threaded some cord through the hole in his body and knotted both ends to stop fraying. The frogs on the card were cut from decorative paper stuck to thin card and curved before being attached with foam pads. Then some peel offs - don't you love them?  The Thank you card was just an aperture card. I put wood effect paper behind the apertures and tied reef knots in thin cord to decorate them.
