Dinosaur Nine Square Card

These cards measure 5ins x 5ins and are made using a white linen effect hand cut blank.
I think that I may have finally come to the end of my supply of puffy dinosaur stickers, although I think, somewhere, I still have  a few much larger 3D ones that also need using up.
I am not 100%, but I am pretty sure these stickers came from Accessorize.  I used to be such a fan of their stickers, but over time they have become more expensive, and no longer offer the value per pack as they used to for card making. I still look, but they would have to be exceptional for me to get my purse out. 
I’ve kept things simple, cutting the background squares from scraps of Bazzill card using my X-Cut 1in scalloped square punch. The squares were then  glued onto a 3in white panel mat and layered onto silver.
Although the stickers are self adhesive I sometimes find that it helps to put a touch of glue to the back of them to secure them a little more strongly.

Super card! I have a grandson who would love this! He knows the names of all the dinosaurs and often asks questions about when they lived on earth and what caused them to die out. I need to follow your example and work a little harder to use up my supplies, too!

I really need to get me a 1" square punch coz I have loads of wee stickers I could do something like this with! It might help use them up rather than them sitting there doing nuffink!

Another great card!

Big hugs

Great card and congratulations on using up your puffy dinosaur stash.
I'd never expect to find stickers in Accessorize. I'll have to check it out next time I go in. Just for a look you understand.
