Dinosaurs Meet Botanical Blooms

Now that Sale-A-Bration is over, I thought I would pull out one of my favorite sets from the annual catalog...AND I pulled out one of my favorite designer series papers from the Occasions Catalog.  Together they make magic!  Thought I'd enter this to the Watercooler Wednesday challenge, which this week is "anything goes:



And here's my card:




The tropical garden page from Botanical Gardens DSP (140583) seemed to make a wonderful backdrop for my dinosaur card.  No Bones About It (138756) is a great set for making cards for my grandsons, who are nuts about dinosaurs.

The dino is stamped in Old Olive ink (126953) and then I stamped the skeleton on top of him, using Mossy Meadow (133645).  I also stamped a cluster of leaves from the same set using the same inks, and some footprints with Tip Top Taupe (138325). My stamped white cardstock (100730) was glued to a Mossy Meadow (133676) base.

I took some DSP and adhered it to Cajun Craze cardstock (119684) and used my Ovals Framelits  (129381) to cut the hole in the center. This was then popped up on top of the base using Dimensionals (104430), creating a diorama look.

Then I had some fun cutting leaves and flowers using the Botanical Builder Framelits (140625) and added them to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink.



For my inside, I completed the sentiment:

and of course, added one more dinosaur.


I'm pretty sure Ethan and Jacob will love this card...what do you think?

  1. Priscilla, what an incredible peek this card gives of a dinosaur in its natural tropical habitat. One can almost hear the sounds of the birds and the rustle among the leaves and blossoms. I absolutely love this and hope you won't mind a CASE. You've certainly made magic! How can Ethan and Jacob not fall in love with this awesome card? Thanks so much for joining us for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  4. Priscilla, this is very creative! Makes me think of Jurassic Park - even though I have never watched that movie. Thanks for joining the Watercooler Challenge!

    1. Jurassic Park--a movie I've seen bits and pieces of many times, but never have been able to watch the entire thing (too scary for me!). Thanks, Gail!
