Dino Days Birthday Cards

Dino Days Birthday Cards

If you’re like me, you have a number of youngsters in your life that love dinosaurs and love getting birthday cards!!  The Dino Days stamp set and matching dies are perfect for making greeting cards that these little people will want to keep forever!  Thanks to fellow demonstrator, Lillian Kemp, for sharing her design!

Dino Days in Pink

These are the products used for the “Pink” card:

Now let’s see how it’s made:

Cut Melon Mambo Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Use Big Shot and Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder to add a design to the front of the card base.

Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4″. Use Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Dino Days Stamp Set. Make sure the greeting will be visible through the DSP frame.

Cut Dinoroar DSP 4″ x 12″ – you can cut 4 frames from this with the selected dies. Use the Big Shot and the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the frame. For this card I used the 4th largest die and the 7th largest die to create the frame.

Arrange the dies, with the cutting side up, on the clear plate on the magnetic plate. Lay the DSP, right side down, over the dies.

 

 

 

 

 

Hold in place with a small piece of washi tape.

Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to attach a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the DSP.   Attach strips of Foam Adhesive Strips along all 4 edges of the Window Sheet.

Use the Embossing Buddy around the inside of the Foam Adhesive Strips so that the embellishments won’t stick to them.

Place the sequins inside the frame. Remove the covering from the Foam Adhesive Strips and attach the stamped Whisper White Cardstock over to hold the sequins inside.
