So, my *baby* boy turned 9 today. I don't know how the time went by so quickly. He's so excited to be 9 and I told him that I'm happy for him but he's definitely not a baby anymore. He knows the right thing to say and told me that he'll always be my baby.
I used yesterday's Sketch Challenge to make his birthday card. He loved it and was so cute since he's like "mommy, you remembered that I like dinosaurs!" How could I forget? He's loved dinosaurs since he was little and didn't have an imaginary friend, he had an imaginary dinosaur :-) Since he loves dinos, I try to get my hands on every dinosaur set that I can find and I don't get rid of them either.
Here's the details. The card base is Blue Bayou and I also used River Rock and Textured Whisper White. I ran the River Rock piece through my Cuttlebug with the Mesh Texture embossing folder and then attached it to the card base. I stamped the dino from Preshistoric Pals in Blue Bayou on the Whisper White and then masked him to stamp the trees in Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi. I stamped an additional dino on the top in River Rock but didn't really like it so I stamped it again on a scrap and cut it out and added it on dimensionals after I sponged in Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou. I cut a little slit in the fold of the card and added some Double Stitched Blue Bayou ribbon and then paper pierced above and below the River Rock strip. I mounted the focal piece on dimensionals and then stamped the sentiment from Birthday Whimsy in White Craft along the bottom. Tah dah!!! All done and a cute card for a very happy 9 year old.
It's late and I'm about to get to bed. Thanks for visiting!
