This is my idea of a kiddie Jurassic Park! chuckle! The landscape was hand cut and pretty easy to do, and then LD, and the balloon were black embossed and colored in. He doesn't actually come with polka dots; I felt for a birthday celebration, he might enjoy sportin' some festive party dots, so I added those with the Sakura pen. I wanted his balloon to have a high gloss finish to match his spots, so Sakura again. After all, it is somewhat of a formal affair, for a dinosaur. (wink!)
I stamped the sentiment with black craft ink right on the popsicle stick and heat set it to dry quickly; I wanted to mount it to the card front with mini brads, so I drug out my Crop-A-Dile for that.
So, after knotting the ribbon around the card front, I determined where the popsicle stick looked best, marked holes through it onto the card, punched them, and then bradded it (BTW, that's a new word I just made up, and it means secured something to something else with a brad!) to the card. Done!
