You can watch my video tutorial below for all the details on my card, or keep reading below!!
Joy Clair Stamps has an awesome January release for you all! There are FOUR new stamp sets being added to the shop, each one cuter than the next! Today I am using the brand new Dino Love stamp set. It is the perfect set for your Valentine’s Day cards! I created this fun and simple Valentine’s Card with the cute “Rawr means I love you in dinosaur” sentiment!!
From the photo you can see I used this set for a full A2 sized card, but these stamps are the perfect size for school Valentine’s as well! Attach a dinosaur toy/pencil/eraser (Oriental Trading has a ton of choices at great prices!) and you’re good to go!!
My card is a very clean and simple design but to add a few bits of interest I added a red frame made by inlaying a smaller rectangle die into a larger one. I also added several of the small hearts included in the stamp set to fill in some of the white space. For the coloring I added small dots in different shades of browns and greens and also white gel pen to add texture to each dinosaur. And the sentiment I spiced up a bit by doing a multi color stamping technique!
Enough about my card and onto the prizes!!!
