T-Rex Birthday

This card was so much fun to make but even more fun to give! I used a Silhouette cut file, #204997, by Jennifer Rush to make this fun shaped card. The edges of each piece are ink blended and the top layers are popped up on foam tape for dimension. The birthday hat was a different cut file, Party Puppy #40556, by Rivka Wilkins. I cut an extra base layer of the dinosaur, scored it a half inch from the top, and attached it by that half inch to make it a shaped card. Inside I stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things Birdie Brown Greetings Galore set in Versamark and heat embossed it with Brutus Monroe Alabaster white powder.

This card goes to one of my “adopted” kids, so for fun I used a happy mail style stamp from the Stamps of Life set called Stamped 4 You. We used a white gel pen to write a personal note to the recipient. True story… as a Junior in high school, my “adopted” son showed up to band camp in an inflatable T-Rex costume 😁🦖. Always the class clown and prankster! It was the last day of grueling training and practice, and his stunt got 300 kids through the day with a smile. Love this boy!!! So now you know why I had to make a dinosaur birthday card for this kid!

10/21 Edited to add: This card was selected as the winner at The Paper Girls Challenge!!!

  2. What an adorable card — perfect for a little boy! Thanks for joining in at STB


  3. What a fun card! What a great story, I know he loved this card!


    • This was definitely a fun card to bring to a party… it got passed around and marveled at by all the non-cardmakers! And yes, the birthday boy loved it! I really enjoy being able to personalize cards to their recipients instead of creating generic occasion cards.


  4. So darn cute. Bet the recipient loved it.


  5. What an amazing card! I love the T-Rex design – fabulous 😁. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Try it on Tuesday! Hugs, Jo x
