Welcome back everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I have a really fun card to share with you featuring those great dinosaurs from the most recent Pretty Pink Posh release.
I’m a huge dinosaur lover, plus I have a great inside joke with a friend that includes a dino that looks a ton like the T-Rex from Dinosaur Friends. Her favorite color happens to be pink and I couldn’t resist creating this custom, super fun card for her!
I started with an A2 white panel and three different pink dye inks from my stash. I pulled out the Layered Dinosaurs stencils and inked them up one layer at a time. Once it was finished I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and set it aside.
Next, I stamped and colored images from Dinosaur Friends in a variety of pink colors that coordinated with the inks in my background. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside while I cut one of the Stitched Photo Frames from white cardstock. I pulled the RAWR! sentiment from Dinosaur Additions and stamped it on the bottom section. Next, I lined the back of the opening with vellum and adhered my images with liquid glue. Then, I added foam strips and squares to the back and adhered it to the left side of my stenciled panel.
Before adding the panel to a card base, I thought it needed something extra so I wrapped pink twine around the right side and tied it in a bow. I added foam tape to the back of the panel and popped it on a card base.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the spikes on the dinosaur’s back and black glaze pen to his eye. Then I added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the palm trees for shimmery fun.
Isn’t this card totally adorable it all it’s unconventional glory?!? I seriously love it and my friend was so excited when she received it.
