A T-Rex Easel Card

Here is a birthday card I have made for my friend Rachel who wanted a card made for her son Henry who will be 5 on 20th August, Happy Birthday Henry.

He is T-Rex mad at the moment so I had fun trying to find something to use but found this great image on google which I printed onto glossy paper and then matted onto gold paper and stuck to easel card. I cut out the letters spelling Henry with my Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet set and stuck below the picture and added two glossy card candy (which give the brad look without having to hide the legs) using 3d foam pads.

I made the backing paper I used on the base of the card using Docrafts Digital designer adding thin gold paper inbetween the pictures, cut number 5 in green using same alphabet as before and matted onto gold circle cut with my nesties and then matted onto a green scalloped circle using nesties.

I used a label nestie set and cut in gold and silver and stuck to underside of front of card for Rachel to add her message when she receives it. I hope she is pleased with it.
