This afternoon I was playing with the new Designer Typeset photopolymer stamp set from Stampin' Up!®. I wanted to make a card with the banner image -- I've seen some adorable birthday cards made with that stamp -- but my ideas just weren't coming together. The banner was reminding me of teeth, so I switched directions and created a crocodile card instead. And if I do say so myself, I think it may be one of the cutest cards I've made.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Designer Typeset
Card stock: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Basic Gray
Ink: Basic Gray, Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen
Accessories: 1-3/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, Mono Multi liquid glue, Sticky Strip
Isn't he a cutie? He even fits in a standard A2-sized envelope. And really, he wasn't that hard to make. Here is a step-by-step tutorial:
Step 1. Cut a 5-1/2" by 7" piece of Gumball Green card stock. Measuring along the longer side, score at 3/4" and 4".
That's it! You just need to stamp or write a greeting inside the card and then send this croc on his merry way. I like to use "I'm wild about you!" with animal-themed cards, and I think that would perfectly here.
I have to say I'm pretty tickled with the way this card turned out, and I hope you like it, too. Thanks for stopping by!
