Christmas Articulated Moving Frog Puppet Card

First Christmas card I  have made this year.  This one will most likely go to one of my grandchildren.
It's an oversize 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" on cream cardstock.  The Frog Doll rubber stamp is from Wild Frog Creations.  He was colored with colored pencils and blended with a Dove blender, pieces joined together semi -loosely (just tight enough that he can still move) with tiny green paper fasteners.   A Santa hat with pom pom tassel was added along with a ribbon bow.  Embroidery thread was used to create the working mechanism to make the puppet move when the tree lite bulb on the end of the string is pulled. Both his arms and legs move. 

By this time I was tired and just slapped the guy down on background paper with mounting cushion, being careful to place it where it would not interfere with the puppet mechanism, added some punched corners and called it good enough.  I had planned to have holly in the corners, but it was too much trouble, lol.


  1. awesome 1st christmas card! i love it. xo

  2. This looks very labor intensive - I can't imagine you would want to make a lot of these! It would be a great treat for a special someone, though.

  3. What a fabulous little frog doll. I can see I'm going to have to check these stamps out. xx
