Dinosaur Card



Here is a card that I made for my nephew to remind him how much I love him. The photo is pretty atrocious. I took it from my smart phone. Its not its fault, I am just to stupid to own a smart phone. Guess I'll have to find where the settings are and adjust them. LOL! Mr. Dino is from Dinosaur Tracks. Admittedly not a cartridge that I use very much. I do believe my intention was to do some dinosaur layouts from when Jaryd was really into them but that time is long gone. He used the cartridge once for a school project so I guess its been at least used which I can't say for all my carts. How terrible is that? I should not buy anymore carts until I've at least played with what I have at least once. Hmmmm. Think I'll add that to my growing list of new year resolutions. The paper is from a stack I picked up at a garage sale and I don't see a manufacter on it. So my apologies for the lack of info on it. I can tell you that its OLD. At least 3 years and who knows how old it was when the person had it. So I guess it doesn't matter. Right? This is a 6.5" x 4.5" card. Grey layer is cut at 6.25" x 4.25" and the slate background is 6"x4". I like to do .25 increments for some reason on my layering. Do you guys have a fav for layering? Mr. Dino is cut at 4" and the grass was just cut with some of those cheap shredding scissors I found in a clearance bin for a buck at our local hardware store. They are like the fancy MS scissors but with out the fancy price. I am okay with that. I don't use them often. I do believe my card got smashed somehow because the grass is askew and not curled like I had it. Guess I will have to fix that before I mail it off. Why don't I notice these things before I take a picture? Oh well! Its posted. So I am golden. I just hand wrote the sentiment (obviously) but added some dots here and there to make it interesting. Hope he likes it. Top of the mornin' to ya'll. LOL! Have a great day.
