Zoo Crew, Go To Greetings, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you find some inspiration in today's card. I found this fun layout on Pinterest and I thought I'd work with what I had to try to recreate it. I used the only fox I had on yesterday's card so I opted for the alligator. You can see the inspirational card here. Please read on to see how I made this card.  There are no instructions on the inspirational card so I had to wing it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist for the layer and it measured 3-3/4" x 5". 

I cut a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Basic White for the top layer and I textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that to the Lemon Lime Twist piece. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card base.

Next I fussy cut the alligator from a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) "Zoo Crew" package. I added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside.

The circle is from the "Stylish Shapes" die set and I used the second largest one. I added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using Lemon Lime Twist ink. I used the ribbon die from the same "Stylish Shapes" set to cut it out.

The strip of DSP is from the "Stargazing" 12" x 12"package and it measured 1" x 4". I taped it about 3/8" from each side and about 3/4" up from the bottom. 

Next the circle was set in place and then the alligator.

The words were added with Dimensionals and I did double up on them on the right side. If I hadn't they would have been drooping on that side.  And the card was finished.

I thought it was a fun card to make and I really do like this layout. I'm hoping I can use it again sometime soon.

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's thinking of you card,
