I fancied a break from Christmas cards this morning!! It is my 2nd cousin’s 5th birthday on Wednesday, so I figured that would be an ideal direction for my crafting to take!
I decided to base the card around the current sketch layout over at Sketch Saturday – Sketch 286 is a very clean and simple layout, which I hope I can do justice to!
Here’s my finished card:
I used a square card blank, adding a yellow chevron embossed circle, with Rory (by Pollycraft) in the centre. I coloured Rory with Pro-Markers, keeping things simple. I popped a little green and white baker’s twine under the circle, which was raised with 3D pads. The little dinosaur footprints were cut by the Silhouette – I found a set of three types of footprint in the Silhouette store and mix them up a bit, so that I have feet that resemble Rory’s dinosaur feet from the image. I welded the toes on the the foot too, to make it a little easier when it came to popping it all together, and once mounted on the card, I coated them with Glossy Accents The sentiment banner was also cut by my Silhouette, taking a crest and banner file from the library and getting rid of the excess pieces before I pressed cut. I chose the free Jurassic Park font, just for a final dinosaur related touch! Just in case you were wondering, the sentiment is in French – one of the benefits of making my own cards has always been the flexibility to personalise and tailor-make cards to their intended recipients, especially when most of the family (on my side, anyway) is across the Channel!
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges too:
