DINO myte! Kid’s Birthday

Good morning!

I don’t make many kids cards! But here is a fun step I made for the birthday of a young boy.

Enjoy the fun color combo of lime green bright orange and grey. I love how the fun dinosaurs are interacting by smiling at each other!

The step card is one of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn, it makes this kind of card super easy to start. No measuring and scoring, just use the die and it does it for you! The grass is also a Cheery Lynn die. The dinosaurs are a digital cut file. The tropical leaves are from Joy! Crafts. I love the size and shape of the leaves. I used dimensional foam to pop everything up. White gel pen and black pen for the eyes. The Happy Birthday To You is from Spellbinders.

Have a beautifully creative day!
