For the pop-out I used leftover plastic from fruit containers. I attached the pop-out to the cardstock using a glue runner then I covered it with the DCWV Halloween stack green and “Oriental” for the sky. I drew and fussy cut a peer and attached that to the front of the large card pop-out. To simulate the lake, I made my own embossing medium, spread it thinly yet unevenly, and let it dry and then colored them with inks from Color Box used a sponge make the water effect for the lake. Took the pieces I colored earlier used tape to attach them.  I cut off the stamped “string” attached generic bakers twine string to the fishing pole and fussy cut the water ripple ripples and placed the string into the center and glued it in the “water”.  I attached the fish to the foremost pop-up and the frog to the thin tall one. 
I used Shrinky Dink and stamped the word best in a 3/4 moon with the word “Pals” in the center, and stamped one of the BFF trinkets for the front, spellbinders dies and shrunk them.  I masked the front border of the card and stamped “best” on one side “pals” on the other and taped the large shrink dink between them.  I used the same dies for the front and cut the center out with a scalloped circle and placed the shrink dink behind it
