 For the hop today, I've created another birthday card for next weekend.. My really good friend had a baby a couple months after me so this is his first birthday! :)
All the cuts are from the Create a Critter cartridge. This is a 5x7 card.

I embossed the volcano with the swirl folder from cuttlebug and then I misted it with brown walnut ink and gold shimmer spray, it's really pretty in person :) The lava is embossed with polka dots folder and inked with black. "DinoMite" is cut out in green and from layer one I cut out the I and the blast and glued it on top for the firecracker. The original cut has a whole layer that lays on top and the only thing a different color is the blast. I liked this better so I altered it. :)
"Happy Birthday" is a rub on that I put in two different places to make my sentiment Happy Dinomite Birthday.

This little guy is cut from blue paper and then I used Blue Raspberry perfect pearls on him and set it with water... Hes GORGEOUS in the right lighting. I also embossed him with the swiss dots folder and popped up his belly and inked all edges.

The inside of my card has the same rub on in black and I used matching papers to decorate it. I used TH Distress Ink in walnut stain for the edges and then I misted it with my homemade perfect pearls and distress ink mister. I really like this card, it's so for a boy! :)
