Dino Days Quick & Easy Kids Cards
Between the stamps, dies, papers and accents, the Dinoroar Suite of products is loaded with creative possibilities. It's also filled with simple & cute elements that make projects really fun for kids! Today, I'm sharing the details of the two quick & easy cards I featured on this week's LIVE Class. I love these kids cards because they introduce basic card elements and can be assembled easily with a little adult assistance. They are also a fun card for adults, too!
Background Basics—The background consists of a 1-1/4" x 5-1/2" strip of Dinoroar Designer Series Paper adhered to a Flirty Flamingo card base. I used a traditional 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" half sheet of cardstock, scored and folded at the 4-1/4" mark.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Dino Days greeting in Pretty Peacock ink onto a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock, then adhered it to a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock. Next, I wrapped some Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8" Reversible Ribbon around the layers and tied them into a double-knot. This element is popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals.
Dashing Dino—I stamped the Dino Days dinosaur in Pool Party ink onto Whisper White cardstock, added some Lovely Lipstick circles, then die-cut it with the coordinating Dino dies. It's popped up with Dimensionals, as well.
Two Cool—I used the same basic card layout and changed a few of the elements for a different look This time, I started with a vertically-folded card measuring 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at the 5-1/2" mark. I used the triangle cluster die from the Dino dies to cut peek-a-boo holes in a 1-1/4" x 5-1/2" strip of Old Olive cardstock and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied some 3/8" Denim Ribbon around the card front into a double-knot.
Dashing Dino—I stamped the Dino Days dinosaur in Pear Pizzazz ink onto a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Whisper White. I stamped the greeting in Pretty Peacock ink slightly overlapping the dinosaur. Next, I layered it onto a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Dinoroar DSP and popped it up over the ribbon with Dimensionals.
