I made this card for a little boy we love very much as he turns one. The saying on the front of the card is from Dino Days and was perfect for a birthday greeting. I fussy cut the dinosaur from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper. The papers allow you to make various versions of this card.
Card Base: Cut Old Olive 8 ½ X 11 paper in half width wise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Mango Melody paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Cut Dinoroar paper 3 7/8 X 5 1/8

For the dinosaur on the front, I fussy cut (cut closely around a print image) a dinosaur from the Dinoroar paper. The dinosaur I cut has space between the back of the dinosaur and spiny scales. I but them apart and attached them to the back of the dinosaur.
