Grid Layout & Birthday Card using Echo Parks’ Dino Friends

Good morning scrappers!

Dinosaurs never go out of style for children! We had a great time using the Dino Friends collection from Echo Park Paper to create a card and layout!

Let’s start with the card!

 

 We started with a 5.5 x 5.5 off white card base. We used paper from the collection for the green mat, and the bottom third of the card. The Dino egg paper has such a great colour palette!
We used plain blue cardstock from our stash and embossed it using the embossing folder that is also part of the Dino Friends collection. It gave a great effect! We used thin yellow washi tape to divide the different papers.
The collection also features stamps! “Rawr means I love you in dinosaur” is the stamp we used, isn’t that the cutest sentiment!
This card is on it’s way to a ‘rawrsome’ birthday boy this week!
On to the layout!
Making a grid layout with blocks of varying sizes is not as much fun as it sounds! Trying to find the right balance of sizes while making sure the edges were even was challenging, but we pulled it off!
We used the same stamp set as the card to embellish the paper. The great thing about this collection is that some of the papers are not dino themed, but still fit in with the theme.
Another great product in the collection is the chipboard accents. We used one for the ‘You are so rawrsome’ title at the top!
My kids & I went to an awesome dinosaur exhibit with animated dinos last year, and got a great family photo that will go great on this layout!
Thanks for looking!
