Good Evening Friends!
This week's card, I stamped about 3 weeks ago. My daughter had a birthday party to go to and I really thought this would be a good sketch to "man up" I knew immediately that my dinosaur would sit in the front on the circle panel in the middle.
I got to thinking about the big circle on the far right and thought... "I need dino feet to make muddy prints!" I don't have anything that could like that, so I grabbed my medallion stamp. I really love this background stamp. I inked it up with blue ink and stamped it. I wanted it to hit the edge of my card to mimic the sketch more closely, but I didn't want the pretty flourishes to "girl up" my manly man boy card! So here's my creation! What do you think of my Roar-Birthday? I tied the manly ribbon in a knot and added my sentiment on some leftover scraps. I save all my 1/2" strips of white in case I need a ribbon banner sentiment.
So ~ for my measurements, I went smaller. 4 1/4" square card.
Base is 8 1/2" x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
layer 2: 4"square
Layer 3: is that fabulous striped ribbon,
Layer 4: 2 1/2" circle punch
Layer 5: cut dinosaur.
Easy peasy, rice and cheesy.. :) Did I just say that? If you're still reading, I hope I made you smile!
