Today is the first day of school for my kids! I can't believe I now have two kids in HIGH SCHOOL! I'm not sure how that happened, but I do hope my youngest doesn't keep growing as fast! Always mixed feelings about the first day, we all had a great summer but I do enjoy getting back to my routine.
The card I have to show you made me feel like it was a great card to give a child on their first day of school, when they are having a bad day, and even as a birthday card. It uses the No Bones About It stamp set, which is a great one for kids cards, scrapbook pages and any other dinosaur lover in your life.
How To Make It:
Stamp the sentiment from No Bones About It in Memento Black Ink on the 5 1⁄4 x 4” Whisper White panel. Stamp Old Olive leaf by words in center of Whisper White as shown.
On a 2×2" piece of Whisper White – stamp leaves in Cajun Craze and Old Olive ink.
Stamp the dinosaur from No Bones about It in in Basic Grey on to Whisper White and cut out with paper snips.
Stamp the footprints along the bottom of Tip Top Taupe using Black Ink.
Wrap Linen Thread around Cajun Craze cardstock and tie a bow.
To adhere the card as shown: Apply SNAIL adhesive to the inside flaps of the TipTopTaupe and Cajun Craze cardstock. Adhere the Tip Top Taupe to the left side of the Whisper White panel. Adhere the Cajun Craze to the right side of the Whisper White card panel. Then, adhere the Whisper White panel to the Old Olive base.
Layer the stamped 2×2 Whisper White to the 2 1⁄4 x 2 1⁄4” Basic Black and adhere to the front of the Cajun Craze cardstock flap.
Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the dinosaur cut out and adhere to front of stamped white panel.
