One of the guys I used to work with is celebrating his birthday today. He asked for a special card – not a theme I would have thought of to make for him :). I don’t have any dinosaur stamps so when this is the case I reply on good old punch art. Thanks to Pinterest there were plenty of ideas.
None of the ideas I saw had what punches they’d used so I took a guess. The Cajun Craze body is a wide oval, the head and legs are large ovals (cut in half and trimmed a bit for the legs), Boho Blossoms (retired) for the end of the tail and spikes (Hello Honey). The tail is hand drawn. I ran all these pieces through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder before I put it together. I saw the trees on one card and thought they’d be good to fill in the background. The trunk is from the Modern Label Punch and leaves use the large oval again. I folded the leaves in half then cut just up to the centre fold, unfolded and sponged with Old Olive. My ‘grass’ on the bottom is the Mossy Meadow washi tape from the Botanical Gardens Designer Washi Tape.
My sentiment comes from the Party Wishes set and is a favourite for me at the moment – so if you have a birthday in the next couple of months you may find this stamp on your card 🙂
On Thursday we looked after our neighbours two boys (3 and 5) and they each made one of these cards – they thought it was pretty cool. They had bought their Dinosaur Zoom book up for me to read them so we were able to identify our dinosaur as a Stegosaurus 🙂
