A Dino Days Birthday Card

Yesterday, one of my ‘honorary’ nephews turned 5. I just knew I had to make him a Dino Days Birthday Card.

This Bundle is perfect for children (of all ages!) and I love using the Brights colour family with it.

For this project, it’s a combination of Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green. One day, I’ll stop calling it Granny Apple Smith! I teamed it with Whisper White for a bright look.

The Pterodactyls (I think that’s what they are!) are second generation stamping. Another is then stamped directly onto a separate piece of card. Using the co-ordinating dies that go with the Dino Days Stamp Set, I cut out both dinosaurs and the scales.

I love how the shapes for the scales have a larger area to fix them in place behind the dinosaurs.

Footprints are stamped across the project and a Blender Pen then fills them in with some colour.

Next it was the turn of the sentiment from the Wiggle Worm Stamp Set. This is cut out with the Scallop Circle Punch and layered onto a Poppy Parade Circle.

I also used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners. This then mirrors the curves of the circles.

Finally, I added some fabulous Googly Eyes from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue to give the dinosaur a bit more of a fun look, before adding the dinosaurs with some Dimensionals.

Check out how cute these eyes are.

I can confirm that the now five year old loved his Dino Days Birthday card.

If you fancy making cards like this one, then make sure you take a look at my 2020 Class Timetable that will be going live in the next few weeks. My Stamp-a-Stack Classes always include a card suitable for children.

Happy crafting

Having fun with Dino Days

At my Stamp-a-Stack classes, there is always a card suitable for children. This project using the Dino Days Bundle is perfect for children of all ages!

A bright and cheery colour combination of Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Lovely Lipstick can’t help but make you smile.

The Dino Days Stamp Set comes with the Dino Dies as a Bundle and it’s so much fun to use.

You have an option of a number of dinosaurs and some come with scales that can be added. It’s easy to add these due to how the scales are cut out using the dies. There is a longer part that’s for adhesive and this is then hidden behind the dinosaur.

A fun sentiment from the set is added to the Whisper White layer.

Footprints are tracked across the background with a length of co-ordinating ribbon across the middle.

Everything is then assembled with the dinosaur sitting on a Starburst Punch layer.

The possibilities with this Bundle are endless as there is so much variety. Make sure you grab yours while the Bundle discount is available.

Why not join us at a future class. Head to my Class Timetable for more details.
