A little over a week until Passover starts! That means it’s time for cleaning out the chametz and making Passover cards. I decided to use this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch to get started on them.
As I’ve mentioned before, my family equates frogs with Passover. This comes from the second plague in the Passover story. And it helps that they are cute and spring-like. Decorating the house with boils just doesn’t have the same type of charm! Here’s what I came up with:
Stamps: Hoppy For You, Calendar Alphabet & Numbers
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pad, Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad
Other: Modern Label Punch, Gold Brads, Paper Snips, Stamp-a-ma-jig
There is a strip of torn bashful blue at the bottom to make the water. The lily pad and cattails are both paper-pieced. If you are interested in other Passover cards, check out my all-time favorite, the Plague Card that I made last year.
