Sweethearts frog card (how to make a standard A2 card)

I made this for the Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Sweethearts challenge. Enjoy!

I'm sorry it cut off, I didn't know it had stopped till I was done with the card. I had such a migraine, I decided that I'd post it because I did show how to make a card that fits in a standard A2 envelope. Enjoy!

Sizzix Texture Boutique

I used a Joanne's 50% off coupon at Michael's tonight to purchase this on behalf of my friend. She has wanted a Cuttlebug for soooo long! She does not need to cut with it. So why pay the price of the cuttlebug? I noticed the Texture Boutique on Monday and shared with her about it and the coupon. It was $29.99, she got it for $15 with the 50% coupon from Joanne's. There are a couple 50% coupons in their flyer right now. One of which expires tomorrow January 20th. There is another one in there though. So I hope this info helps.

Please note this machine does not cut. It is designed to emboss only. If you want to use dies check out the Cuttlebug or Big shot just to name a couple. Thanks for watching!
