Here is the card that I sent him.
I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then brushed it randomly with Versamark ink so it would look more reptile/leather-like. I added green zig-zag border to look like scales. I was inspired by Nichole's card. I stamped his name with PTI Outlines Alphabet (a must-have set!) and colored it with copics. The sentiment is from PTI Birthday Basics.
Here's the inside.
The dinosaur is from PTI Tiny Treats: Valentine and I added a sentiment from Birthday Basics. I love that the cute images from this Valentine's set can still be used year round. They are so great for children's cards.
I taped a gift card holder to the inside of the card. You can read more about the gift card holder in my post here.
A close-up of the sentiment.
That's all for today. Thanks so much for visiting and taking a look!
Have a sunny day! :)
How cute! I'm sure he'll love it. I like how you colored the letters and finished off the inside!
What a fun card! I love how you made the reptile background and the coloring you did on his name. What a great sentiment to put on the inside too. Im sure he will love it! :o)
OMG....... I totally love this!!!
This is adorable. The background is great!!! It reminds me of a dinosaur right when I looked at it. SO fun!
Monica! this is totally awesome. I love how you captured the texture and shape of a dinosaur on the front of the card without a single picture of one. And the way you created the gift card holder and taped it to the inside front of the card is so polished and professional. Great job on this (I may have to CASE this one :) ).
Too cute! I love the background; it's perfect!
This is wonderful! I LOVE the "skin" look on the outside...so clever! And your kitty cracks me up!
Monica, this is AWESOME!! Love the reptile/leather look, and the way you stamped and colored his name, great job!
What a great card, Monica. I love both the inside and outside. I am glad I ordered the alphabet stamp set too. Thanks for the inspiration.
That is soooo cool! I love the reptile look!
Great card! I love the coloring in the name!
Great card! And what a cute name for a cat
This is so stinkin' cute, what a great idea to use the set for an inside sentiment! LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing! :)
what embossing folder is this? I've been trying to find it and thought i'd try to save time by asking.
