Dinosaur Birthday Card

Hi, Janja here!

Today I prepared a birthday card with four new dies from CottageCutz - Baby release.
Perfect card for a little boy who loves everything related to dinosaurs.

- CottageCutz dies: Baby Dino - Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, T-Rex, Mushrooms & Greenery
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- white cardstock: 4.72 x 4.72" (12 x 12 cm)
- white and colored cardstock
- Distress ink: Antique Linen, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn
- Archival ink: Sepia

Start by cutting out the dinosaurs. Use a colored cardstocks. Shadow individual elements with Distress inks on the edges, and assemble them into a whole.

For background trim white cardstock and shadow it. Prepare also two cardstocks, which are wavy cut with scissors. One is colored with Distress ink - Mowed Lawn, on another one add dots with a stencil.

Cut out grass with the die of a green cardstock.

Paste the grass cutouts with glue on the wavy edges of both cardstocks.

Attach dinosaurs with self-adhesive pads on ready background.

Stamp "Happy Birthday" with brown ink, and place it on the card.

Have a lovely day!
