“See Ya Later ... Alligator”


Reilly had a birthday party to go today, and being 12 {well he’s actually 12 going on 14 on Tuesday!!!}, the card needed to be “cool”, hence the Alligator from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set “See Ya Later” and the croc from the “Zoo Babies” stamp set seemed perfect.

My new stamp “Hardwood” has just arrived and I have used it in two projects today, I think it has now become my favourite!
Stamped in “Crumb Cake” on the front of the card, it gave a neat background to the snappy alligator!

I have seen many crafters replicate the alligator using the Petite Pennants Builder punch, so I can not give credit back to the original artist – sorry.
Punched in my favourite colour Old Olive, I also used the Old Olive to stamp the croc from the “Zoo Babies” stamp set, and the words “Yippee-Skippee” from you guessed it … the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set!
Now back to the croc, I gave it some googly eyes and gnashing teeth (in Whisper White) to make it seem more scary!

The birthday wishes are also from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set “See Ya Later”, and the Stampin’ Makers used are Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Real Red.
Stamped on to Naturals White, and cut using the Chalk Talk Framelits, layered and adhered to Old Olive cardstock, and then dimensional’d.

A Candy Dot in Old Olive completes the card and anchors the corner.


On the inside of the card, and cut from Old Olive, I have used my favourite “Top Note” Bigz Die to make a pocket for the gift voucher, and added a Pin Wheel for added fun!


Also on the inside of the card and stamped in Crumb Cake is the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set.


So {hopefully} this card is totally grunge and way cool dude!!!
