Alligator Birthday Card

Hi there, friends! It's Rebekah here to day to share with you this cute little card using the Reverse Confetti Later Alligator stamp set!

I automatically think this set would lean more towards a boy's card but I wanted to stretch it a bit and use the small bow and birthday cake stamps to make it a card more suitable for a girl!

This seems to be a 'go-to' card design for me lately when I have stamp set I want to use but am not sure what to do for a design. Its also perfect for doing major coloring therapy!

All I did was stamp the alligator randomly on a white card panel and color each one with Copic markers. I wanted the alligators to really pop so I added a touch of a cool gray outline around each one. I filled in between with the bow stamp and colored them pink.

I then cut the circles from the Lacy Scllope Circle Dies  and the Pop Up Circle Dies from Reverse Confetti. In the smaller circle I stamped the birthday cake stamp on top of each other masking the candle on the cakes on the bottom of the stack.

I mounted the stamped and colored circle on top if the larger scalloped circle and added to my card panel with foam tape.

For the sentiment I simply stamped it using Versa Fine Black Ink onto white cardstock and cut it into a banner shape and attached it to the bottom of the circles.

I added a little Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in the Clear Overlay on the cakes and the bows for a little sparkle!
