It's the first week of January but my mind is out of Christmas card making mode into Valentine's Day cards. I don't normally make this type of card but High Hopes has some great stamps for this occasion so I just had to ink them up!
"Dino-Mite Dino" just makes me giggle! He could be used for so many card types....graduation, congratulations, birthday.....the list goes on! but I chose Valentine's Day for this guy.
After colouring Dino with alcohol markers I cut him out with circle die and cut a matching cardstock piece to put behind him.
I wanted to keep the layout of this card on the more simple side (for me anyway) to keep the focus on our friend Dino.
Now, I have a confession ... I didn't have a happy Valentine's day sentiment stamp that fit my design so I used "part" of another High Hopes sentiment for my card.
Some red rhinestones finish it off.
