Dinosaur Party Card ft. Spellbinder's Dinosaur Etched Dies


Hello, my friends!

Today I have a super cute Dinosaur Party Card to share with you inspired by my son's love for Dinosaurs. When my son was around 3 years old he developed quite the obsession for them, he had to have everything dinosaur for a while, in fact, one of his Birthday Party's was Dinosaur themed. This card brought back some many great memories of that time!

Here is how I made this card.

To begin, I first ran the Dinosaur dies thought the Sizzix using Canson watercolor paper. I then used mermaid markers to color in each dinosaur, by layering various colors and using a water brush to blend the colors together. Once the coloring was complete and the die cuts were dry, I placed each die cut back into the negative space (from the original piece they were cut from) and ran them along with their dies again through the Sizzix machine. This brought the etching back into the dinosaurs as the watercolor flattened some of the detail. I then added glossy accents to most of the raise etched areas on the dinosaurs and set them aside to dry.

For the card panel, I die cut a piece of bristol paper using the largest pierced rectangles. Then I did some very light ink blending to create the sky and the ground. To create the balloons I punched out a one-inch circle from a post-it note and used it to create a stencil for the balloons. I then pierced a hole under each balloon and fed some black sewing thread through, then secured it to the back of the panel. Next, I tied some knots in the string and glued the knots directly onto the top of the pierced hole, snipping off the extra thread. I then glued each dinosaur in place, popping up the center one with some foam tape.

I finished the card by adding the Hooray die cut that I had added glossy accents to.

Here is a closer look at this cute Dinos!

I left the inside of the card blank for now, only because I think this card could be used for more than just a birthday party. I'm thinking retirement party for the "old dinosaurs" that may be ready to retire soon 😄

Hope this card has inspired you today. I had so much fun creating it and playing with these cool etched dinosaur dies.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
