One of the big perks to having a cutting machine like the Cricut is that I can make cards like this T-Rex Fossil Birthday Card on short notice and without having to run to the store. I can also custom design it to suit the person’s favorite colors and interests, like with this dinosaur. The fossil design is from one of my favorite and most-used Cricut cartridge, Simple Everyday Cards. You just can’t beat 50 different designs plus two envelopes. I haven’t made all the designs yet, but I’ve made the #1 Teacher card, Congrats Grad card, and the Welcome Baby card and all of them turned out well. Let me show you how simple this card is to make.

- Kraft Paper Cardstock
- Green Cardstock

Step 1: Open your Cricut Software and load your Simple Everyday Cards cartridge. Select image F2+1 (envelope) and set the height to 9.125 inches and cut on the coordinating scrapbook paper.
Step 2: Select Image 13 and set the height to 6.5 inches and cut on the green cardstock.
Step 3: Select image F1+13 and set the height to 6.5 inches and cut on the brown kraft cardstock.
Step 4: Fold the dinosaur card in half at the notches.
Step 5: Use the adhesive to attach the brown piece to the inside back of the cut out fossil.
Step 6: Fold the envelope at the notches and seal the bottom and sides only with the glue pen.
That’s it! I really love the colors I used on this T-Rex Fossil Birthday Card, but you can use different colors of course. You could even make a cute feminine version by using pink or purple paper or adding a little bow. I know several young ladies who are very interested in both dinosaurs and bows, lol.
