A Dinosaur Challenge

October 31, 2011

I created this card for the month challenge at Craft Project Central.  The fantastic thing is that the challenge runs for the whole month but there are weekly prizes and the chance to go in the draw to win one month’s free subscription to the month of your choice – Woohoo – love free stuff.

I started with a base card of Whisper White.  I embossed a strip of Daffodil Delight card stock using the Stripes Embossing Folder.  I ran the stripes along the length of the cardstock.  I wrapped this piece with Early Expresso 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon and tied a knot and then attached it to the card front.  I embossed a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder added it to a piece of Early Expresso card stock which has the top and bottom edges punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I slipped this piece underneath the ribbon and attached it to the card front.  I stamped the image from the Dinoroar stampset using Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using my Circle Scissors.  I cut a 2cm strip of Early Expresso cardstock down the length of the A4 sheet and punched one long edge using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I snipped the unpunched edges, added adhesive to the back of the circle and attached the punched border to create a frame for the image.  I then embossed this whole piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and attached it to the card front over the ribbon using Mini Glue Dots.

I did take a little liberty with the sketch by changing the orientation but I love the way it turned out.  A great children’s card to have in my stash.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
