Flipping Frog Card

I created this flipping frog card for a swap on AFTCM!!  A fun card - I found a Flip Card Tutorial here. !!  I added texture to the cardstock using an embossing folder and my hammer because once the flip mechanism was cut I was not able to emboss only the edges of the card.  The whole thing was too large to pass through my Big Shot!!  I added a bit of colour using pigment ink and embossed those areas with clear embossing powder which gives it a bit of a wet look and made it a bit bumpy like a frog - a toad in my case.  I laser printed the image (downloaded from CLKER) and the greeting, watercoloured the toad and layered it onto yellow before I added it to the center of the card which flips when you open it and reveals the greeting.  I found this cool TOAD greeting online and thought it would work perfectly with my image!!  It still needed a bit of something to I added a yellow ribbon bow to the left hand edge of the card!!      Therese
