   I’m back for the final Craftin’ Desert Divas Release Day. It means the release is over, but there’s still time to order to get your free crafty goodie in your package, just be sure to order by July 15! Also, please remember there’s going to be no shipping between 7/13/17 and 7/19/17. Shipping will resume on 7/20/17.

   Also, the Craftin’ Desert Divas have a Cardmaker’s Blog Hop coming up on the 14th, so be sure to stop back by for that!

   For my last card for this release, I wanted to make another cutie with the new Sunny Smiles set. I also wanted to make a masculine card as I’m in need of a lot of those! I also decided to use the Ocean Border Dies to help me set the scene.

   For this card, I used some circle punches to make a frame to put my scene in. I stamped out the alligator from Sunny Smiles and centered some waves from the Ocean Borders die set. The little alligator was colored up using copics listed below. I inked up my background using Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I inked up the waves using Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks. I just LOVE how this came out!
   For my sentiment, I wanted it to be punny… So, I used the computer and typed up what I wanted it to say in “Lindsay Tinkertoy” font. Then I printed it out, colored it with some copics, and then went over the sentiment with a white gel pen.

   For some finishing touches, I also added white gel pen highlights to his sunglasses and also the waves on the wind board. Over those, I also added glossy accents. I love how this makes them shine!

    To continue the sentiment, I used “Happy Birthday” from the new Summer Vibin’ stamp set. I stamped it out, cut it into a banner, colored it with copics, and placed it on the inside of the card.
   I hope you’ve enjoyed this release as much as myself and the rest of the design team have! This has been a favorite!
