See Ya Later, Alligator!

I liked the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that came out this spring and really wish they had continued into the Annual Catalog.  But such is not the case with SAB sets.  "See Ya Later' was one of my faves - especially since I used to sing the Sunshine song to all of my little ones - even when they weren't so little anymore!

This is a card we made in CLOclub, complete with alligator 'skin'!

We texture embossed the Gumball Green Core'dinations paper with the Decorative Dots folder and then sanded the dots to make it look like alligator skin.  The Baker's Twine is wrapped around the inside of the card, threaded through the button holes, and tied in a bow. The button is secured with a Gluedot and then a Dimensional for height, overlapping the banner attached with Dimensionals.  The stamp was inked up with a Summer Starfruit ink pad and then we used the Gumball Green marker to color portions of the stamp before stamping the whole image.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
