Dino-mite Father's Day card

Yup another Father's day card! This is one I made for my Dad from my daughter (she calls him "Papa"). I am so happy with how it turned out!! It was really hard to get a good picture because all the folds/layers, so I took several, lol! I used the SCS tri-fold card tutorial, found here but I changed the dimensions on the side to 1.5" since I was only putting the skinny palm tree on it and I knew the volcano was going to be pretty wide.
Here's the recipe:

Papers: Sorry I used scraps again and the only patterned paper I used was for the volcano.

Cuttlebug folders: "herringbone" for the palm tree leaves and  "circles" for the dino skin

Cricut cartridges:
Create-A-Critter (of course!)
TRex- cut @ 3.5"
palm tree- cut @ 3.5"
"Dino-Mite"- cut @ 2.5"
volcano- cut @ 3"

Just Because Cards
"you're RAD"- cut @ 3.75" (cut off the "RAD")

Plantin Schoolbook
"Papa" - cut @ .68" and welded together

I love the way the white pen accents came out. It really helped the eyes pop since the colors were so dark! Thanks for checking in! Leave a comment I'd love to hear from you!
