Hey friends! Today I'm bringing you a super fun card for our latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Fun Folds! This card was totally inspired by the recent movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. My boys and I are huge fans of the entire series, and after returning home from the latest installment (so good!), I just had to make a dino-themed card. But dinosaurs are BIG, right? So I needed space to do my scene justice. I knew a Z-fold card was the way to go.
The great thing about the Z-fold card, is that from the outside it forms a complete scene in and of itself. If I'd really wanted to, that could have been a card right there. But who wants to have just a little fun when they can have a whole lotta fun! Am I right?
So I stamped my images from Critters From the Past, colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
For my focal panel, I folded a 4 1/4" x 11'' piece of pale blue cardstock at the 5 1/2'' mark to form a standard sized card. Then I simply scored the front panel at the halfway mark of 2 3/4'' and folded it back on itself. Then I die cut a continuous piece of kraft cardstock with the Stitched Mountain Borders, scored and folded it in the same places to match, and adhered them together.
To finish off the scene, I added a few cooled lava caps to the mountains, some Spring Showers clouds, and my dinosaurs, of course. I used some Copics to add a sandy texture to the ground to give my dinos a place to stand. Finally, I adhered my Everyday Sentiment Banner to the top right corner.
This card is so much fun to play with! Opening it up to reveal those two secret half-panels just brings a smile to my face every time.
