Kid's Dinosaur Birthday Card

Here’s a fun card featuring the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder!

Since I didn’t have the Dinoroar Stamp Set and wanted to make a cute card for my grandson, I decided to cut out the dinosaurs and use the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder and I’m so happy with how it turned out. The frame is from the Woven Heirlooms Dies which went perfectly with this layout.

Tips & Instructions

  • Old Olive Card Base - 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2 (top folding)

  • Whisper White Layer - 5 1/4 x 4, emboss with Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder and adhere to card base

  • Lovely Lipstick Frame - Cut with Woven Heirlooms Dies

  • Whisper White Layer 3 1/4 x 2 1/4

  • Cut dinosaurs from Dinoroar Designer Series Paper.

  • Adhere Whisper White Layer to card and the Lovely Lipstick Frame over it.

  • Adhere Dinosaurs to card with Dimensionals and add 3 Enamel Shapes.

  • 4 x 1/2 Whisper White Strip, stamp sentiment in Old Olive and adhere with Dimensionals. Add Enamel Shapes on each side of the sentiment.
