Shadow Box Dino Card

Here's another card I made using the Adorable Dinos stamps from JessicaLynn Originals. The dinos work really well for shadow box cards. I added a little twist, literally, to the card. Instead of mounting the dino with pop-dots, I used the 'folding straw' technique. Maybe some of my readers will recall the days spent sitting in the local, after-school, hot-spot and drinking Cokes with the old-fashioned paper straws. After the drink was done you'd take the straws, plural because they always put two into the glass, and flatten them and then layer one over the other and start folding. It was just something to do with your hands while you and your girlfriends were drooling over the latest cutie pie in the school. Anybody remember doing this mindless activity?

Anyway, I thought that it would make a great way to adhere an image that required movement and, I think it worked pretty well. Here's a close up picture looking down and behind Dino.

Instead of writing a list of the supplies used, I decided to photograph what I used to make this card. The stone-looking patterned paper is by ProvoCraft and I picked it up at Michaels last week. Works perfectly for dinosaurs!
