Real-time Design Tips: Peek-A-Boo Dino Cards with #RealityCrafting

It’s true. I’m in love with this set of dinosaur stamps. And it’s true that they’re not just for little kids. When my high school aged daughter needed a card for a bunch of her friends to sign for a departing teacher, this is the one she chose, out of ALL the cards I offered to her!

So if a bunch of high school students like it, then it must be pretty cool. Although I’m sure I’m saying ‘cool’ in the wrong context. There’s certainly another way to describe ‘cool’ but I’ve promised my kids not to try using their lingo – LOL!

In any case, this card came to me as part of a #RealityCrafting video, where I pick out the materials I’m going to use, then turn on the video camera and start designing, in real time. Since I don’t know exactly what’s going to come out at the end of the video, #realitycrafting is a bit of an adventure for me. But I do love sharing my design process!

One tip if you’re recreating this card but aren’t watching the video – be sure that your hole punch is far enough up the side of the designer series paper. You need the dino head to peek out for maximum dino happiness, so you’ll want to make sure you have room to stamp him and still keep his cute tail on the card.

Ready to see the crafting process? I absolutely love this set – so whimsical. And the peekaboo card is a perfect way to show off the fun!
