Today, I’m sharing Darcy the Dinosaur from KLM Digital Designs December Release. The image comes with 4 different sentiments, “I think you’re dino-mite”, “Happy Anniver-Saury”, “Heard You’re Jurassick” and “Have a Rawrsome Birthday”. I decided to create my own Jurasic scene for Darcy this week and added the sentiment on the inside of the card.
To make the card, I printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around the image. A black marker was used to go around all of the edges. Then I put it through my Xyron Creative Station, as I wanted it to lay completely flat on the finished background. The sentiment was printed out and added to the inside of the card. I chose “Have a Rawrsome Birthday”.
For the background scene I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″ and drew in my own scene. I also used Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Scenery 3 stencil for the basic outline of the palm tree and leaves. To add some added texture to the grass, I used a piece of old rag with little bumps on it and some Isopropyl Alcohol. Once the background was completed, I added the Dinosaur directly on top of it. I glued the back and then adhered the entire finished piece to my base card cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″.
