This week’s Paper Player’s sketch provided the perfect opportunity for me to use the new, Dino Days Bundle.
Here’s the sketch:
Honestly, I was on the fence about ordering this Bundle, until my 50 year old daughter was here visiting. As we were looking through the catalog, we came to this set, and laughed ourselves silly. She said, “I know you’re going to give me one of those cards.” She’s right!
I’m still laughing today, because this dinosaur is stretching his short, little arms as far as he can, and the sentiment is too cute! Don’t you want to squeeze him? I love his denim look by stamping him in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment, “I love you this much! (It’s more than it looks.)” in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. A Rectangle Stitched Die was used for cutting; a larger one which I turned around to get the length I wanted.
After stamping and cutting the dinosaur with his die, I decided that the two inch wide strip would be this pretty leaf pattern of See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. I discovered it blended well with the Seaside Spray Cardstock layer on a Night of Navy card base.
The two leaf sprigs were made with the Leaf Punch, Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, and layered for thickness.
Dino hopped up on the sentiment, with the help of Dimensionals, and my “adult” card was complete.
You’ll find the Dino Days Bundle in my Product List, which is 10% less than buying the stamp set and dies separately. I highly recommend buying the bundle, because this is one set where you really need both.
I hope I made you smile today. Have a great one!
