Benaiah's Birthday Card

Happy 3rd Birthday to this, Babe!! This guy is hysterical and one of the sweetest. I'm a lucky Mamma to have him as my son  <3

Our Great Grandson, Benaiah is the sweetest kid I have ever seen and today he turns 3. He always has a smile and is such a happy guy.   And he LOVES Dinosaurs.  So, I had to make him a Dinosaur card.  Now this wasn't an easy task since I didn't have any stamps or dies of Dinosaurs.   So, I turned to my new Silhouette.  Now, I haven't used it a lot so I also had to learn how to do some things on it.  Now, I am crazy for telling you this, but I spent from 7 AM to 3 PM on this birthday card.  Unbelievable, but true.  Everyone loved the card at the party, but of course Benaiah was more interested in the toy Dinosaur than he was the card and clothes we gave him


I used Karen's Pop & Cut Labels Base to start the card.  When it opens the Dinosaur moves and on the inside it says Roar.  Both of these, #3 and Benaiah's name I cut with the Silhouette.  I added some "grass" under his feet and inside his mouth.

Great card Joan. Thanks for admitting how long this took. Sometimes it seems people can make a project in 5 minutes but it always takes me ages. Worth the time though. The dino is so cute.
