An Oversized Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

Tenneson

Hello Friends,

My grandson, Tenneson, recently turned 2 and he's coming for a visit!  A 2-year that's so dynamite handsome needs a Big, Big Birthday Card to celebrate his 2nd Birthday.  Let me show you what I whipped up in my stamp room.


Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

He admired the dinosaur on his recent Valentine that I sent him, so I thought the I would let the Myths & Magic Designer Paper dictate the size of his birthday card.  His Birthday Card measures 6" x & 7", but it sports 3 fabulous dinosaurs for him to admire!  That's the beauty of making handmade cards.  You can make them any size that you want.  Plus, I was able to personalize it to say, "Look Who's Turning 2"!


Milestone Birthday Card

Notice all the dazzle on the dinosaurs and the knights!  I cut the "2" multiple times and stacked them up to make a dimensional 2.  The "Look Who's Turning" stamp is from the Number of Years stamp set.  Hint:  The Number of Years stamp set is photopolymer so I was able to manipulate the stamp to make a curvy script, instead of the half rounded sentiment.  Simply bend and stretch to the shape you want on a block.  I did have a few false starts; my fingers are blue.  But I was determined and in the end, I prevailed.

Enjoy your weekend!  We're taking a long weekend to make Maple Syrup, but I have 2 new video tutorials planned for you next week, so be sure to stop back by.  I love to hear from you.  If you enjoyed today's post, be sure to leave a comment.

How to Make a Funny Masculine Card

Birthday Wit Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

I'm back with another masculine card.  Actually, today's birthday card could probably be considered gender neutral.  The stamps, design and color could go either way.  I used the Birthday Wit stamp set to provide the humor and the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp set to place the candles on top.  It's really a very easy card to make.

 Because I stamped with the the Birthday Wit everything free stamp  3 times, once each with Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks, it would be super, duper easy to make 3 cards guys birthday cards in record time.  Simple stamp, then cut and puzzle the pieces onto 3  card fronts.  I used Eastern Palace Designer Paper as my first layer on a Very Vanilla Card base.  I use the same 3 colors and the Picture Perfect Party stamp set to stamp the candles on top.
