Hey Love, a Valentine For You

Hello to you today!  The stamp set Hey Love on page 8 of the Occasions catalog is perfect for Valentine's Day.  It has such cute animals.  I had a post with the gorilla a few days ago here.  You might want to check it out.  There are actually 3 cards using the gorilla.  Today's card showcases the alligator.

If you like to color, this set is perfect for you.  Get out those Blends!

The card base is Berry Burst cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Call Me Clover layer is 3 3/4 x 5.

The patterned paper used on this card is from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  Isn't it perfect.  This paper can be found on page 190 of the Annual Catalog.  I'm also hearing that this paper will be featured in some way with the January Paper Pumpkin.  You'll want to make sure you subscribe to it before the 10th.  Go here.  The background layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  The strip down the right side is 1 1/2 x 4 7/8.

Stamp the alligator on Whisper White in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Color in with Blends.  I used Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light and Dark Call Me Clover, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green, and a little of the Light Pool Party around the outside of the alligator.  Cut out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Add a few of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots found on page 25 of the Occasions catalog.  The ribbon behind the circle is the Call Me Clover Grosgrain from the Annual catalog, page 200.  Add the circle with dimensionals.

The words are made using the Well Written Framelits Dies.  Cut out the Love You in Berry Burst.  If you are smart, you'll use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for this and turn those words into stickers.  I didn't think the words would show up as well as I wanted.  Stick the words to Whisper White and  trim around them.   Stick that on Berry Burst and trim around that.  Add to the card.

Here's the inside of the card.  The saying is from Hey Love stamped in Berry Burst.  Add and color another alligator!
