This is him at five months with a couple of dino friends:
I'm still working on the banner, but I made a dinosaur birthday card for this challenge.
The background is Dinoroar designer series paper (# 149589) covering the Whisper White thick card stock base. The embossed layer is Pool Party card stock embossed with the new Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder (#151503). Over (and around) this layer are arranged three stamped and die cut palm branches, two stamped and die cut dinosaurs and one flying dinosaur (I guess I'll have to learn the names of these guys in the near future) die cut from the Dinoroar paper. The stamps are from the Dino Days stamp set (#149406) and the coordinating dies from the Dino Dies die set (#149636/bundled with stamp set, #151139). The "happy birthday" was die cut from Pretty Peacock card stock using the Well Written dies (#148534). I cut three of each word and layered them together for the card.
Here's a photo of the inside:
The greeting is stamped in Pretty Peacock and the dinosaur die cut from the Dinoroar paper. Tip: The dinosaur dies do not cut the ridges on the dinosaur images. For the stamped dinosaur on the front of the card, I stamped the ridges, die cut them with the coordinating ridges die and adhered them to the top of the die cut dinosaur. For the inside dinosaur, I die cut the dinosaur image from the Dinoroar paper, then snipped out the ridges from the paper, retaining the bottom edge that was remaining after dinosaur was die cut. Then I placed the ridges edge to edge with the dinosaur body and attached them on the back with Tear & Tape adhesive.
I am having fun playing with the Dinoroar Suite for Easton's birthday. I'll share more later.
In the meantime, check out all the birthday projects over at the TGIF Challenges blog here.
Have a great day!--Sara Nell
