Dinosaur Birthday Card

One nephew shares a birth month with my dad and one shares a birthday day-of-the-month with him. It was my nephew's 5th birthday this past week and my dad's 65th. I made a card for both of them, but today I am sharing my nephew's.

I used Freshly Made Sketches sketch #185. I kept the colour scheme bright and simple. The balloon is a shape that came with my Brother Scan'N'Cut. I cut it as small as possible and then had to shave it down by hand. I cut the dinosaur on my Scan'N'Cut too, but that one I designed myself on the computer.

I masked off a bigger birthday wish stamp to get just the "birthday wishes". Then I spelled out "BIG" with an alphabet set I have from Close To My Heart.

I had to make this card in a hurry so I was glad to find inspiration in the sketch!


  1. I love the primary colors - perfect for a five-year-old! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Oh this is too cute! I love the fabulous colours you've used combined with that wonderful dinosaur! Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!


Thank-you for sharing your thoughts.
