Just like my son, his best friend loooooves dinosaurs. And his favourite colour is orange, so I decided to make an orange dinosaur card for his birthday, of course! I really need a new dinosaur stamp set because the only one I have is this Stampin Up one, and I can only give the same kids the same dinosaurs on their cards maybe twice??? Anyway, for this card I used this cool star paper from an old My Mind's Eye collection, and used a circle of vellum over the top right corner. I love adding vellum over part of a bold print. Sometimes the print is a bit much without it! I coloured the T-Rex in copic markers and used dimensionals to pop him up a bit so he looked like he was standing in the grass. And yes.....I finally got myself a grass die, so no more hand cutting! Yay!
