Locate 6"x6" premade card panel with the floating frog, narrow premade card panel with the frog playing fiddle, and small premade card panel with frogs in love as shown. Ink all edges using a brown ink. Turn square card panel so that the floating frog is on the side of the card where the narrow panel will be placed. Layer the narrow piece over the square card panel as shown and adhere. Cut out the circle frog image from the small card panel and set aside. Die cut the decorative die from the Everyday Heroes die from a light green patterned paper and ink edges with brown ink. Using the dark green patterned paper die cut the large die from the Spellbinders Majestic Squares, as well as two hearts from the Timeless Amour Collection. Die cut two of the smaller Fleur corner die cuts from a light patterned paper, and ink edges with a brown colored ink.

Stamp water lilies and lily pads onto white card stock and heat emboss with embossing enamel. Die cut using coordinating dies.
