Dino-Mite Card Duo

Pair up the new “Dinosaur Adventure” Mini Theme with your favorite dinos 
from the Dinosaurs Silhouette cutting file and a selection of basic
 ECHO PARK PAPER
Designer Dies to create a set of playful cards that any boy would love to receive!

For the first card we are using the cone portion of the Ice Cream Cone Die Set 
 to make an interesting background.  The image was die-cut twice from two 
different pattern papers found in the Mini Theme.

A base paper was cut to 3 3/8”W X 4 5/8”H; this was the width and height of the 
four cones when they were placed edge to edge.  The cones were attached to the 
base paper and then machine stitched in place.

The T-Rex dinosaur was added with foam adhesive and finished off with a couple 
of stickers from the mini collection, as well as enamel dots.  The brown and green
 mats were cut from the Bundle of Joy Boy 6X6 Paper Pad.

 The second card also uses one of the dinosaur shapes from the Silhouette file, but 
I have cut it twice, from two different patterns.  I layered the two together by offsetting
 the top layer just up and to the right of the bottom piece.  I used foam adhesive to
 adhere them together.  The bottom layer adds a really cool 3-D effect.

 Using the larger of the Designer Label Dies, I die cut a small landing for the 
dinosaur shape and added it to the card-front.


The palm tree sticker was placed to the right side of the label with foam adhesive
 and the dinosaur layered on top.  From the “dinosaur” banner stickers,
 I used the “U” and “R” to create part of the card’s sentiment. 

Have a SUPER weekend, friends!
