Frog Yoga - 3-D Window Card

Monochromatic cards? I have never been a fan but here I am with one for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #361... and I enjoyed making it. The challenge runs from Friday, September 20, through Wednesday, October 2, 2019 so check it out at the blog. I used several shades of green with dark brown as my only neutral and the color white, which is free.

I used a fun fold called a 3-D Window. This card folds flat into an A2 envelope making it simple to mail to the recipient. I stamped the frog image then colored and fussy cut it, adding the wiggly eyes. Imagine a frog enjoying Yoga! The little cloud is a die cut. The palm tree was a stamped & colored image leftover from a previous project so I embossed it with clear powder for a soft shine then fussy cut and adhered it to the front, making sure that the palm fronds would fit within the measurements of an A2 envelope. The sentiment was stamped and fussy cut. A few gems were added to finish off the card front. Inside the box, I adhered the frog onto green watercolored paper. The back of the card is white cardstock to permit a place to write a personal note. I decorated it with a cartoon-style alligator cut from patterned paper.
