Frog Card, Army of Frogs
This card is A6 in size and made as a Thank you card for some lovely generous people. Unfortunately due to the snow we currently have, I cant post it yet! But thes tory goes like this:
I love playing board games. I love playing the standard monopoly style games, but also Eurostyle games like Pandemic, Ticket to ride etc.. Recently I joined a local board gaming group so started buying a few games. My most recent one is Army of Frogs by Gen42 Games. (There is also an app for the same game on iphone/ipad and I LOVE IT!)
Back to the story. I bought the game, and its only suitable for up to 4 players. As we are a fmaily of 5, one of us usually has to sit out. I contacted Gen42 and asked if they sell extra sets of frogs. I thought i could get an extra set and maybe alter it somehow with promarkers or nail polish to make them different. Gen42 came back to say unfortunately they dont sell sets of frogs, but they have an old prototype set laying around that im more than welcome to have! YAY. They wouldnt accept anyhing for the frogs, which arrived in no time at all, so I thought Id send them a lovley Froggy thank you card to show my appreciation and a post on here linking to them to show how fab their games are! (I also have Hive another great addictive game they make).
The card was made using Swiss dots embossing folder and Walnut stain distress ink. The Frog is a Medium Sizzlits die which I distressed with green inks and the Reed I hand cut out of textured brown card.
The Little circle topper was handmade by myself and lightly inked with walnut stain to take off the starkness of the white.
Hope this snow goes soon, I want to get back to normal and post my card off!
