Dinosaur Box Cards with Pretty Pink Posh

Friday, April 21, 2023

My daughter has been getting invited to lots of birthday parties recently and I realized that I needed to build up my stash of birthday cards that are more interesting to kids. The Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Box Card Dies are perfect as you can create fun pop up scenes! I started with stamping images from the Dinosaur Friends Stamp Set and Dinosaur Additions Stamp Set. I used their coordinating dies (Dinosaur Friends and Dinosaur Additions) to cut out the images and used a light tack mat to hold them in place when coloring them in with Ohuhu Art Markers.

I am coloring the dinosaurs in all different colors so I can create two different themed cards. Next I added Distress Oxide Inks to white cardstock die cuts from the Scallop Box Card Dies and Stitched Leafy Borders Dies. On the scalloped arch, I used Tea Dye, Broken China and Prize Ribbon to create the ground and night sky. Using the Dino Dig Stencil, I added Vintage Photo to create rocks and Slippery When Wet Lunar Paste for gold stars. Using Tea Dye and Vintage Photo again, I added ink to the “shelf” pieces that will be used in the box card as ground for the dinosaurs. Finally, I added Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn on the Stitched Leafy Borders. The rest of the die cuts were cut out of colored cardstock.

You can follow along in the video as I show how to assemble the Scallop Box Card Dies and any tips I have to help add in the “shelf” pieces. I added the Stitched Leafy Border around the front of the box card and added the scalloped side pieces of glitter cardstock. Once the box was assembled, I added in my volcano, trees, dinosaurs and leaves. The pterodactyl is adhered to the back side of the second “shelf” with acetate so it looks like it’s flying above! I stamped the sentiment with dinosaur tracks on the scalloped rectangle from the Scallop Box Card Dies and glued it to the front of the box card. With my extra dinosaurs and leaves, I glued them to the back of the box cards with another scalloped arch so we have some room to write a note.

I love how these two cards turned out and how they are similar but so different because of the color schemes!
