Hi there! Merry Christmas Eve! Everyone here at Simon Says Stamp wishes you a wonderful holiday with your friends and family! Thank you for sharing all of the fun around here during the holiday season. We so look forward to crafting with you in the new year too! Today I’m sharing a birthday card! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so busy making Christmas cards that my stash of birthday cards is now really low. Today, I’m featuring adorable, fun and cheerful stamps from Reverse Confetti. A cute little gator ready to chomp on some cake!
I used two stamp sets to make this card – they go together perfectly in scale and style. I used the Later Alligator and Weather it Together sets. I thought my Copic markers would be the perfect way to color the images, and then I paired it all up with some cute Doodlebug papers.
I stamped all the images in crisp black ink and die cut them out! Then I colored them all and set them aside. (I always cut my images out before I color them in case I make a boo boo with the die cutting!) Isn’t this sentiment so fun? I used a corner rounder on my top layer and the yellow layer.
The sun, clouds, gator and cake were all attached with foam squares. It’s hard to see in the photography, but I used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add a bit of sparkle to the cake and the clouds. I added a twine bow in green to match that sweet critter.
Here are my Copic colors for today’s card!
Thanks for dropping by today! See you soon!
