It’s sketch week at Just Add Ink. This little beauty was designed by Tina and I know you’re going to find lots of creative ways to use it.
I needed to make a card for a special little guy who’s turning 4. Thank goodness the post is still running so I can send him some birthday love.
I love card with layers but I’m not always so good with putting them together. Sketches give some really great suggestions about where to layer!
For this card I’ve used a strip of the Dinoroar DSP on the card based and then added a mat layer (Pretty Peacock & Whisper White). The Whisper White is embossed using the Stone Embossing Folder (Sale-A-Bration 2020, it’s no longer available but I love it for this theme!).
On top of that I added a vellum circle, Pumpkin Pie cardstock strip, Old Olive grass strip (this isn’t Stampin’ Up! – it’s a stand alone Sizzix die I’ve had for years) and a dinosaur cut from Dinoroar DSP using the Dino Dies. I am having so much fun at the moment using the perfectly coloured images from DSP on cards.
The final touch is a “Happy Birthday” sentiment on the front from the Label Me Bold stamp set.
I carried through the theme to the inside adding a number 4 for the birthday boy in Noble Peacock Foil, some stamped dino prints from the Dino Days stamp set and a smaller version of the elements from the front of the card. I do like matchy-matchy!
This suite is one of many in the catalogue where the dies cut out the DSP. The added versatility for both the dies and the DSP is wonderful!
