Another Year Boulder

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

Yesterday was National Fossil Day! A fossil is a preserved impression of a once-living thing from a past geological age, including plants, animals, shells and more. Create a card including anything that has been found as a fossil - dinosaurs, leaves, amber, footprints, etc!

For my card today I pulled out my Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise die set to create a Double Slider Surprise Card. 

I decorated my card using Heffy Doodle's Prehistoric Pals die set.  I have had this stamp set sitting on my desk for a while now waiting to be used and this is the perfect opportunity!

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

When you pull the tabs on either side of the image, it reveals two more panels which extend the scene. I added a boulder and a dinosaur on the left panel along with the sentiment "Another Year Boulder". On the right panel, I added the Mammoth and rock along with the sentiment "Have a Mammoth Day".

The Dinosaur and Pterodactyl are from Heffy Doodles Dino Time Stamp set.

On the base panel I used Heffy Doodles Wildside Stencil to create the animal print background.

For the inside of the card I added another of the sentiments from the Prehistoric Pals stamp set along with a birthday sentiment from MFT Stamps Bitty Birthday Sentiments.

I also added the dinosaur, caveman, boulder and bone along the bottom of the card.
