Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh my!
Good evening! I finished my work tonight and decided to make some cards. There was a challenge on the Operation Write Home website this week to make a card using a template that they provided. The template had a 3x3 square in the middle with a 1 inch strip down the side. I decided to use the new Sei Zoo Pals paper pack that I got last weekend to make this card. First, I cut a 3x3 square out of the lion paper. I then cut out two more lions to pop them up. I initially raised the whole lion off of the paper and then popped the mane/face again so that the overall lion is layered on the card and appears to be 3D. A strip of green paper from the same pack was used on the edge and is 1 inch wide. Finally, the sentiment comes from the Stampin' Up 'Wild About You' Stamp set. Since I do not have an orange ink-pad, I used a marker to stamp the sentiment. I then punched it out using the Clever Lever oval punch and backed it with a yellow/orange paper. Finally, I placed a green ribbon on the bottom to embellish the card a little bit more. I hope you enjoy!
