My Dino Birthday Party Cards

My Dino Birthday Party Cards

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! Paper Nest Dolls is celebrating their 10th birthday this year! So, I am sharing two birthday cards to celebrate! My Dino Birthday Party Cards are my Design Team Inspiration Cards using Dino Party Amara and Dino Party Owen by Paper Nest Dolls. Don’t you think these two stamps go so perfectly together!

The Details of My Cards

I had debated about placing them on the same card, but in the end decided to go with two different cards with the same party theme using boy and girl matching papers. So, the Doodlebug papers were perfect with those gorgeous bright colours! I used the same coordinating papers from each paper pack such as the cupcakes, the Happy Birthday, the sweets, and confetti.

Once I decided on the papers, I coloured Owen and Amara in bright colours with my Copic markers to match it.

For my Amara card, I decided to create a regular A2 card with lots of layers in greens and pinks to match my colouring. I included some fun banners and a balloon since it’s a birthday card.

For my Owen card, I decided to create a different shaped card. Again, I used lots of layers, this time in blues, but with a mini slimline card layout. I used the same banners and balloon to match Amara’s card, but with different dies for the background.

The sentiments for both cards came from the Simple Strips - Birthday by Taylored Expressions. I love that you can stamp 18 sentiments at once and die cut them all out at the same time!

Clear Wink of Stella was added to the party hats and the pink ribbon on Amara’s dino. For Owen’s cupcake, I added white gelly pen sprinkles to his cupcake. The finishing touch was adding sequins to both the cards since sequins say birthday party to me! Lol!
