Dino Days Birthday

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. 

These cards were created for my grandson's birthdays. Their birthdays are a few weeks apart so we celebrated the three and five year old together.  I've had the Dino Days Stamp set and coordinating dies since they were released in the AC 2020-2021.  They were in a stack of stamp sets and dies I was getting ready to sell, but when my daughter decided to do a dinosaur themed party I had to pull it out from my retired stamp sets.

I used the stair-step/technique or fun fold which was perfect for this stamp set. I love the bright colors I chose for the dinosaurs. Aren't they fun?

I had difficulty keeping the three steps to stand up straight, and the weight of the smaller Tyrannosaurus Rex was a bit too much for the second step. I ultimately used a Stampin' Dimensional in the valleys of the steps that hold the folds and prevent them from opening up all the way.  Sometimes when I'm working with stair step folds, they get weak while I'm putting the card together. The Stampin' Dimensional is the perfect solution.
