Good morning! I made this super cute alligator card for my "little" brothers birthday. I say little but he's in his 30's...he's still younger than me unfortunately! This image came in a set from Darcies Heart and Home and this is just the top portion of the alligator. The actual stamp is his whole body and you can cut out his belly, it's heart shaped, and then use him to make a gift or goody bag or anything! There are lots of projects on the website that go along with each set of stamps. While I think these are wonderful the shipping is really long...so think about that if you need something in a hurry! I missed out using this guy for my little guys for Valentines Day-but all they really wanted was candy, so no loss to them! The alligator is colored with Copic markers on Papertrey white cardstock. The striped paper is from Lasting Impressions and the green is the flipside. The card base is Bazzill. I can't remember who makes the sentiment...it's on the tip of my tongue...oh I hate that! The brads are from American Crafts and I used my fabulous Janome Mini to do the stitching. I am having so much fun with that! I thought the alligator was cute enough (for my bro) without adding any floofy poofy embellishments so he's kinda plain, but worked for him! I also used a black Spica pen over the letters to just add a little sparkle and sponged Versa Mark Green Tea around the sentiment panel.
Don't forget to enter the blog candy in this post! I will be drawing a winner tomorrow morning. Thanks for all of your kind comments...I really appreciate them all!! Have a nice day!
