Long Neck Dinosaur Baby Card

This dinosaur family may be brachiosaurus, but I think of Littlefoot in the animated movie “The Land Before Time” – he was a Long Neck.

One of my cousins just welcomed a new grandbaby, and she requested another dinosaur baby card.  (The original dinosaur baby card is HERE .) I couldn’t make the cards the same…it took me a fair amount of time to have my epiphany.

I blended the sky with a cloud stencil, then built the scene on top of that with my die cut pieces. I struggled with where to place the “new baby” sentiment and finally decided to put it on Soft Sky paper so it blended with the sky.

Supplies:  Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up!
