Lion and Mouse

March 31, 2017

I am still loving the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. Here is another card I made using the kit and the Cuddly Critter Accessories Set. The lion’s eyes amuse me and I couldn’t help myself. I had to make him look at the mouse.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of white card stock. I stamped the outline heart strip in black in over the whole background. I left some black areas for interest. Using the ink cubes included in the kit, I filled in some of the hearts with the solid heart strip. I offset the stamping for added interest.

Using a stitched rectangle die, I cut the stamped panel down to 4.25 x 5.5.” I used a Polaroid frame die to cut out the center of the panel. Using the same die, I cut a black fun foam frame and a black card stock frame.

I stamped the critter animals on a scrap of white cardstock and used colored pencils to color them in. Once, finished I fussy cut them out and painted the edges with a black marker.

I stamped the sentiment and some more hearts on the black card stock frame and embossed them in white. I adhered the black card stock frame to the fun foam one.

I created a card base form some white card stock. I adhered the heart panel to the front of the card base. I pieced the black frames into the hole. I added a scrap of pattern paper cut with a grassy border die to the card base. I used a blue colored pencil to add the sky in the frame.

Lastly, I adhered the mouse inside the frame and the lion outside of the frame.
