Simple Alligator Card




I signed up for the sketch card swap this month on the Dry Embossing Yahoo Group I belong to. I had some old Lasting Impressions business envelope sized paper that was already dry embossed with a pattern around the outside. I immediately thought it would be perfect for this sketch. I hope it shows up in my picture. Dry Embossing on white paper is hard to photograph. This was a really quick card to make, since most of the embossing was done for me! I dry embossed the alligator using one of my new Lasting Impressions templates and then cut a frame out of some blue paper. I measured 1/2" in on all edges of the frame, and then cut that out using an exacto knife. I tied a ribbon to the frame, and voila! Done with this card in less than 10 minutes!! Plus I think it turned out really cute for a quick card! Thanks for stopping by!

The card came out AWESOME Heidi. Great idea to turn the card sideways. I have a hard time working with the business size but would like to make more cards this size since the envelopes are so cheap.
