Inside: We keep getting older and you don't!
Happy Birthday to our beautiful, ageless
The alligator paper is wrapping paper I got from Target last year. You can probably find it at specialty art/paper stores or maybe Cost Plus. Or try online with a google search for alligator or crocodile paper. (paper.com has 2'x3' roll for under $4 http://www.paper.com/catalog/catalog...9499/black.htm) Or you can make your own with a Fiskars embossing plate. It's not as distinct a pattern but will work with a little ink rubbed on the embossing.
The tag was done on the computer with Comic sans font for text and lucinda calligraphy font for the exclamation point. It's on mini dimensional dots.
Used sizzix frame die for alligator paper.
I have a lot of this paper so I'm thinking of making another one for my husband who travels a lot. I often leave notes in his luggage. So his 'what a croc!' card will read:
I'm here and you're there.
I miss you.
Can't wait til we're together again.
Anyone have any other ideas for the insides of a 'what a croc!' card?

Thanks, ladies! Love the losing weight idea, lol! I'm not a demo, it just takes me forever to design a card so I was hoping to get a little mileage from this one so I appreciate the ideas, thanks!
