Dino Birthday




Today's Free for All challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to make a free standing pop-up card. This was a PERFECT challenge for my great nephew's birthday!  There's a great tutorial on the resources page for making this type of card.


I made a faux jumbo eyelet out of black cardstock with my 1/4" and 1/2" circle punches. I cut the grass free hand.

Wowzers, Charlene...this is a kid's dream card! Love the textured base the tall grasses (super cool), the footprints, and that image is soooo cute. Awesome challenge submission.

Your nephew is going to flip over this! What a super little guy card!

Just so you know, I'm flipping over your grass. Move over Martha... Charlene's grass is better than yours! (Spoken by someone who just bought her grass border punch today...)

What a cool use of the pop-up. All that embossed texture is so perfect for the cute dino - it makes for a perfect little boy card.
