I have this super fun shaped card to share today!! :) One of my adorable neighbor boys will be celebrating his seventh birthday at the end of the week so I had to make a good "boy card." With two boys of my own, you'd think I'd have no problem with this!
I used my Gypsy and Create a Critter to weld this altered shape card together. I sized the shadow layer first to RDS of 3 1/2" x 6" to fit these random envelopes I have. Then I had to size all the other layers to fit the shadow (because I used RDS it made it a little difficult). The layers ended up being 5.95" x 3.35".
After I assembled the alligator, I added a little doodling -- less is more for boy's cards.
I threw on some black flat back self-adhesive pearls for the eyes and nostrils. Here you can see how I made the card so he can stand up to wish the special boy "happy birthday." (Hero Arts, Big Hugs clear stamp set)
