Isn’t that cute? It would even make a super cute birthday card – just switch out the greeting!

Here’s how our designer created this for you.

Stamp Gator on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and color with Inktense Pencils  #100, #1530, #1540 and use the matching die-cut to cut out.

Then, stamp Wood Grain Fence on white cardstock using Color Fuse Bubblegum and then add a little bit of Color Fuse Rose with a blending brush. These two colors are from Color Fuse Ink Family #5 and they are gorgeous! Die cut that panel using the largest die from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitched Die Cut Set and adhere to a black card base. Don’t you just LOVE the way pink pops on black?

Next our designer added another panel of white cardstock, set at an angle, to create some visual “movement”. She added a “shadow” for Gator in the two lightest pinks – Rose and Blush – from the same Color Fuse family using the Watercolor Background Set. She placed that onto the Wood Fence panel, leaving a little space on the right.Rubbernecker Blog RN%2BAlligator%2Bd%2B6-2020%2BJM

Next she stamped the sentiment from the Kittie Says Phrases #1 Set on a pink strip of cardstock with black ink and cut the Hugs #2 with black cardstock and adhered both as shown.

Then the star of the show – Gator – gets popped up with some dimensional adhesive and blinged out with a few self-adhesive rhinestones and this handmade cute card for a friend is ready to go! Let’s look again!
