A Blast From the Past

Hi Crafty Friends

Here's a fun children's card we made in the club a few weeks ago. I certainly had fun designing it. I saw a card on Pinterest with this fold, but without all the 3D layers. It occurred to me that I could fill it with dinosaurs (as y' do!)

We inked a cloudy background and inked and stamped a sandy foreground. I love these rather friendly looking dinosaurs (Marianne, I think). The foliage is coral and some Memory box poppies which I thought looked a bit Triffid like scaled up to dinosaur size.
I love the dimension you get with this fold, and the fact that it goes flat for posting. I'm already thinking 'Christmas scene'
happy crafting


  1. Simply super, such a great card for a littley (or even a biggy!)


  2. Fantastic card design, love the scene, and wonderful shape.

  4. not sure I was expecting to see dinosaurs but LOVE the idea for kids ( or maybe just those cranky old men ha ha - not mentioning any names) xxx

    1. ha Ha. yes I would definitely have sent it to my 'dinosaur' x
