Stampin’ Up! No Bones About It Card Idea

Stampin Up No Bones About It dinosaur birthday card mary fish stamping pretty

After our fun conversation in the comments section on yesterday’s card, I decided to create a card using Stampin’ Up! No Bones About It stamp set for a friend’s 71st birthday (a good enough friend that would enjoy the gentle ribbing).  Dinosaurs clearly aren’t just for little ones.

Fortunately, the recipient has a good sense of humor and this sentiment (Stampin’ Up! Age Awareness stamp set) will give him a chuckle.

The sassy black and white paper for the card and envelope liner is from Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper.

  1. I’m tickled with all the discussion today. Thanks!

  2. Paula in Maryland

    Mary your card is a Roar, Too cute! Have a Wonderful weekend everyone…

  3. Great sense of humor for both of you! I’m sure he will enjoy the card, Mary!

  4. I have to agree that we need to be careful who we tease with affection and be mindful of who might not like it. Don, my 71 year old birthday “boy,” invites this kind of humor (he’s a teaser himself).

  5. Princess Judy

    This is so awesome and so much fun! I’ve always felt the age awareness thing to be a little insulting, but it is a scream when paired with dinosaur bones.

  6. Mary – this card is hilarious. Love it…

  7. Oh Mary, this is so clever and cute!! My father-in-law would love this (he is 87)! I think Brian is having an influence on you – lol – in a good way, of course:-). As a former middle school teacher, I can only imagine what the 11-12 yr. old boys would do with the dinosaur set and Gorgeous Grunge – and some Real Red ink – eeeww! Lol!

  8. Ginger Toivonen

    Aw Mary this is so cute! I was already in love with this set but now I have even more reason to get it!

  9. Mary – LOVE both of your amazing dino cards. What great versatility! Well done, as always.

  10. I could not love this more than I do – wish I had thought of this and created it. What fun, Mary!

  11. Mary, Love this sentiment with the dino! I really wanted to get this set but there are no little boys in our family. Now you’ve got me thinking out of the box. Thanks for sharing.

  12. THANKS for sharing this darling card with us. I’m making this card for Jack’s next birthday (82). He has an amazing sense of humor and I think he’s going to love it. SO GLAD I went and ordered this set (this week).

  13. Charmaine Babineau

    As a seventy-seven year old, I was uncomfortable with the attempt at humor on this card. We may be old, but we’re not dinosaurs.

    • I understand perfectly, Charmaine. I wouldn’t send it to anyone that I didn’t think would enjoy the gentle ribbing–a little humor about aging between good friends can be fun.

  14. Thanks for your sweet feedback. As we discussed yesterday, there are many options for this card beyond the little ones. Over the hill . . . perfect birthday. We have been married for a long time or “old” friends with two dinosaurs!

  15. I absolutely LOVE this card and the fun theme!

  16. Nancy Farrell

    What a great idea. I could send this to many friends over the hill! Ha. Ha.

  17. Oh my gosh Mary!!! you did it again!! what a fabulous card, I just love the sentiment, I also think it would be super funny to send a card like this one to any friend of family member in our age bracket, they definitely would get a kick out of it.
    I’m anxiously waiting for July to roll by (I must stick to this darn budget, LOL!! ;)) so I can order this super fun set plus the linen thread, I might go a bit overboard and get one of the sets with those cute kids with all of the accessories on pages 44 and 45, love both of them.
    Thank you for sharing.
