New Pad

I can't resist posting this silly card I made for my son, he moved out on his own this past weekend and I wanted to send some mail to his new address.  I figure with almost a week gone by he is missing the 'free' food so I put a gift card for the local grocery store inside.
I have had this designer paper for a while and I thought it was fun enough to produce a smile when it is opened even for a young man.
I cut out one of the frogs and popped it up with foam tape then added some googly eyes. I printed the sentiment off the computer and finished with some twine and buttons made with circle punches.
Supplies: Natural White and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, twine, googly eyes, gems and misc gems.



  1. Nina, what a fun card and you have used my all time (now discontinued) papers by BasicGrey from the 'Be Silly' collection. LOVE IT!

  2. What a fun card!! I'm sure your son loved it!! (and the gift card, too!!)

  3. Cute card, and it is bitter sweet when they move out. Hugs

  4. SWEET!! I am sure he will LOVE it!! Mom's always make sure their kids have enough to eat!!:)What a WONDERFUL idea with the gift card!
