Prehistoric Birthday Bash


I used this fun new dinosaur stamp set just released by H&M Stamps for the Clean and Simple challenge on Split Coast. Today we were to follow the sketch on this card.

First I stamped the images and then punched out what would fit inside a 1 1/4" circle punch and layered them on 1 1/2" chocolate chip circles. I stamped the cake again on a scrap - cut out the cake part and layered it over the cake stamping. The cake and hat are popped up with foam dimensionals. I scored a few lines along the top and bottom with my Scor Pal added a knot of hemp to the gift and yellow stickles to the hat and flames for a little sparkle. Clean and Simple!

Thanks for coming by today - I appreciate your comments so much!
