See Ya Later, Alligator!

>> Monday, May 29, 2017

I have a niece named Allie, whose nickname is "Allie"gator. When I saw this new background image I knew I had to make a birthday card for Allie with it. There are so many different sayings on this image, the possibilities are endless!

I stamped the green panel with the new image (158H) using SU Old Olive ink and then die cut the oval window out, attached it to the cream card base and stamped the Happy Birthday greeting inside the oval with the same ink. The frame was made using  stitched oval dies. The gator was created using the Animal Kingdom cartridge and my Cricut machine. I rarely use my Cricut and it took me a few tries to get the gator sized correctly. I added some shading to him with the old olive ink and popped him up with some foam squares. A couple of tiny black half pearls were added for his eyes. I think my niece will like this.

Just a reminder there's only a couple more days to get in on the chance to win big here at DRS Designs. Be sure to check out the details here.

Thanks for stopping by today!
