Alligator party that is.
|See Ya Later, Alligator|
One of our friend's daughter is turning 1 and I made 12 invitations for her little party. Mom's theme was alligators because of her favorite stuffed animal. I found the perfect stamp in the Stampin' Up Wild About You set. I heat embossed the alligator, then stamped the flowers without embossing.
I paired that with some hot pink reptile skin paper, which I die cut using a scalloped rectangle Spellbinder. The base layer is from the DCWV Animal Crackers stack.
|Glitter Glue on Die Cuts|
The 1's were cut on my Cricut.
They seemed pretty plain, so I coated them with orange glitter glue and let them dry. They proved to be fairly difficult to adhere because they curled. I used some heavy duty GlueDots to ensure they stuck down. One thing I can't stand is for my cards to fall apart in 6 months, so I am fairly picky about making sure the layers and embellishments are thoroughly attached.
The dark brown cardstock bases are a set of blank cards by Paper Studio. We printed the party information on white and adhered it inside the card.
I ended up with a cute set of party invitations that are not too girly and not too pink - exactly the effect desired.
Thanks for looking. See you later!
