Cricut Dinosaur Tracks Birthday Card

Whew, I only have one more card to design for the card workshop I am hosting next week!  This is card #9.  This card is super quick to put together, and I think it turned out pretty cute.  I cut the silhouette dino card out at 4 1/2" using the Cricut Dinosaur Tracks cartridge using kraft cardstock.  Then I cut out the mountain range at 2" in a dark brown. Then I cut out 2  yellow squares at  4 1/4" and one 1" x 4 1/4" green strip.  I used some brown ink to distress the yellow squares and the green strip.  Then I took the card and masked off the dinosaur and used a Mister Huey chevron mask with Perfect Pearls mist in Cappuccino to spray the chevron pattern on the frame.  I used some green and brown ink on the edges of the dinosaur.  I assembled the yellow square with the green strip and mountain range and then I used pop dots to adhere just behind the front of the card so it would have some dimension.  I just glued the other yellow square on the inside.  The sentiment is computer generated - then I cut it out with my paper trimmer and used scissors to cut the end to make a tag.  I used scissors to cut a small hole in the fold of the card to string the twine through, inked the tag with brown ink and punched a small hole in it and attached to the card.

I am posting this card on the following sites:
