BBTB2 CHALLENGE PAPER DOLLS DRESS UP DINOSAUR
For our readers challenge over at BBTB2 we were to use a dinosaur cut from Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge. I love this cart not for the paper dolls but for the huge variety of other cuts it has!
I have to say my card looks a little childlike but this was intentional as it's for a dinosaur mad 5 year old little boy!
The card is 6x6" and I used a swirly loopy black and white background paper which is a Pink Petticoat download. I like digital papers as you can add to them on the screen before printing so I added the Dino Hugs wording in turquoise and lime randomly on the paper to match the colour of my large Dino. The dinosaur is cut at 8" which I know is large but I only wanted the top portion of him for the card! I cut him 3 times , once in white cardstock , once in turquoise cardstock and the top layer is green dotty paper by Bo Bunny. I cut the teeth from the bottom white layer then layered the 3 dino's atop each other for a chipboard effect and adhered the white teeth to the top green layer. I also inked around the top 2 layers with black ink. I adhered dino to the card and just cut around the card to cut the rest of him off ( this sounds cruel but I promise you he did not feel a thing!!) The dots on his body were made using the EK succes Swiss Cheese border punch ( great punch if you need different size dots) and the Hi added are Making Memories puffy alphabet stickers.
Don't forget to pop overto BBTB2 and see the fabulous dinosaur cards created by the rest of the DT and we would love it if you joined in the as we love to see your creations too and remember you can use a dinosaur from any of the Cicut Carts if you don't have Paper Doll Dress Up.
Thanks for looking!
