Dino Days Card by Secrets To Stamping

Alphabet Challenge has a new theme starting today, “D is for Dragons/Dinosaurs” – isn’t that a fun one? Once I knew that my son was expecting a son, I jumped at the chance to purchase the Dino Days stamp set and coordinating dies. Because I have such high hopes that my new grandson, Noah, will love dinosaurs as much as his dad did, I didn’t need to think twice!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this slimline card is just shy of 9″ by 4″ so I cut the Old Olive cardstock to 9″ by 8″ and scored at 4.” At the end, I did end up trimming it about an 1/4″ on both sides.
  • Then, I started building up the background layer with White cardstock, Mango Melody cardstock (cut with the Simon Says Stamp Slimline Marquee die). Finally, I added the Dinoroar DSP layer as the final layer.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once the card base was complete, I took the Dinoroar DSP and began cutting out all of the whole dinosaurs that were on the sheet with the coordinating dies. I will save the rest for a card later!
  • After that, I chose the dinosaurs that coordinated with the background paper, then added the little spiky things to the stegosaurus with Pretty Peacock ink. Then, I glued and popped up the dinosaurs to the card front.
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and cropped it out with the Tasteful Labels, popped it up with dimensionals and added a few rhinestones.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
