My card today over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog is inspired by those fun-loving dragons from a rocky town called Berk! I love these cute little dragons from the Mama Elephant sets Me and My Dragon and Dragon Wishes.

I stamped this family of dragons out with some MFT Extreme Black Ink onto some blending cardstock. I actually only used 8 markers from the cool greys – probably the least amount of markers I have used in a while! Some dot detail helped to add some texture details for scales. I used some Google images as a reference and cut them out with my Scan N Cut, though there are coordinating dies available.

For the background scene, I coloured three panels with Distress Inks. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron for the grass, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain for the hills and Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon for the Sky. I wasn’t too smooth with my blending as it helps to give texture to the scene. I used two different dies to cut out the panels – Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and Mama Elephant Kingdom Trio. I stacked these onto a white top-folding A6 card panel.

I stamped out the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the MFT Essential Sentiments onto the front grassy panel before popping up the dragons on some foam tape. I arranged the scene so Mum and Dad are in the air with the kiddies scattered around.

A few sequins in the sky and some gel pen detail to the dragons finished off this card!
