I had fun creating a personalized invitation with the Prehistoric Alphabet stamp set by Kindred Stamps this week.
For the outside of my invitation I used an older technique call punch art, before cute critter dies became a thing many crafters used punches or simple shaped dies to create critters. I wanted a Dino shaped card to coordinate with the prehistoric alpha set but I don't own a Dino die plus I wanted to use things I already had in my craft hoard, so I deiced to made my own Dino.
My tri fold card bases is made out of olive green card stock cut to 5 ½ x 11 inches scored at 4 ¼ and 8 ½ inches
I used a Swiss dots embossing folder to add texture and two circle dies to make eyes (1 inch and 1 ½ inches ) and my regular hole punch for the nose.
I traced my water color pallet on the top and bottom of my green card stock base to make the curve of the mouth. I then traced the smaller circle die 5 times starting in the center of a 5 ½ x 2 inch card stock to make the teeth.
The inside center panel with the party info was typed up in a word document on my computer leaving space to stamp “RYAN” with the prehistoric alphabet set by kindred stamps. I also created masks out of post it notes for the letters so I could stamp the foot print across my invitation. I colored everything in with Copic markers.
To put the card together you will need:
1 card base
1 center panel
2 small black circles
2 lager white circles
1 large green circle (cut in half)
2 Tiny black circles
2 sets of teeth
I layered the white, black and half green circles together to make the eyes. To give them a bit of dimension I add a small pop dot under the green half circle. I add the teeth to the inside of the card which I did cover with scraps of embossed green card stock. The tiny black circles I placed on the front of the invitation to make the nose.
I hope you enjoyed this project to see a bonus project head over to my blog
I will be back soon to share more projects with you all.
