Just Dropping You a Lion

EK Gorman, ELizabeth Craft Designs 2:13 aHey friends.  Have you seen the new critter dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  They are ridiculously cute and I thought I pop in today and share this card I created using the new Lion die set as well as the new safari Tree die set.

IMG_4654Step One:  Create a 6×6 card frame using a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 6×12 inches with a score and fold at 6 inches.

Step Two:  Die cut out the tree, leaves and three grass piece from the Tree die set.

IMG_4656Step Three:  Using copic markers, color the die cuts to look like grasses and trees on the savanna.

IMG_4659Step Four:  On the card frame, create a background using copic makers.  Here I created grasses for my die cuts to blend in with and a cloudy sky.

IMG_4658Step Five:  Die cut the Lion die set out of 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut a full male lion plus two female lion heads and tails.

Step Six:  Color the lion pieces using copic markers.  Using Kid’s Choice Glue, assemble the the lions.

IMG_4660Step Seven:  Assemble the card by adding the background die cuts.  Use Kid’s Choice Glue to adhere the tree and leaves.  Use 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to adhere the bottom stripes of the grass, layering them one upon another.

IMG_4662Step Eight:  Using Kid’s choice glue, tuck the lionesses heads and tails behind the grasses to make it look like they are hiding and peeking out.  Adhere the mail lion in front of the grasses.

IMG_4663Step Nine:  Trim any pieces that hang off the edge of the card frame.  Add a sentiment in black ink from the new Safari Sayings stamp set.

EK Gorman, ELizabeth Craft Designs 2:13 cI also adore this super friendly lion.  He looks ready to greet anyone.

EK Gorman, ELizabeth Craft Designs 2:13 dThank you for peeking in today, and checking out my project.  I hope you are enjoying this die release as much as I am!
