Ribbiting News - Double Trouble Challenge # 83 "Fun Fold"

Here is my Design Team card for our Challenge #83 at Double Trouble "Fun Fold" to include Twisted Sister's optional twist "Froggy", and sharing with our partner at Crafting Happiness Challenge #  "Anything Goes".  Following the tutorial for this Fun Fold Card... pieces were cut for the card base, frame and design papers. After adhering the design papers the smaller die was use to cut through the front of the card.   

My card was modified on the inside scalloped circle because the stamps I intended to use needed additional space.  The larger scalloped circle was cut with white cardstock and then stamped three images using the masking technique.  My masked garden scene was colored with a variety of Copic Sketch brush pens (alcohol-based), and adhered to the inside double fold on the right-hand side.  Another frog was stamped, colored and just the head of the frog was fussy-cut and placed on frog with 3D thin foam tape for dimension. 

On the bottom inside of the card, again using the masking technique, several of the stamps from "Gnome Matter" were stamped directly on the card base to create a continuation of the garden scene along with another Gnome and frog.  Again, took to my Copic brush pens and colored using many of the same colors, along with another fussy-cut of head only to add to frog in the border scene.  

I was so pleased with it; but it needed one more thing.  So... I cut two frogs, colored, and again fussy-cut one of them, head only, and adhered with 3D thin foam tape to the other.  Found the perfect spot for this frog on top of the mushroom and adhered with glue. 

On the front of the card the Sentiment "Ribbiting News" gives the flexibility of using this card for any occasion.  The gnome and frog sentiment were added to the inside of the card base, and the upper left-hand corner was left blank for another sentiment relative to the occasion it will be given.   

At Double Trouble Our Things 1, 2 and 3 sure bring on some wierd combinations but I like to challenge them all; however, you have the flexibility of doing just Thing 1 "Create a Fun Fold" and be eligible for our random draw.

For those that really like more of a challenge may want to include Twisted Sister's optional twist and/or enter at Crafting Happiness, our partner for this challenge if you have met their requirement... and you will be rewarded additional chances for the random draw. Please join us for this fun challenge
