Hello to you today! I'm so glad you are here. As soon as I saw back in May that the A Little Wild stamp set would carry over to the new catalog, I bought it. I was a new grandmother and thought I might need it. Sorry to say, I have not used it until today! Why? I just don't know. It really is cute! Here is my card for today.
So cute! I started with a card base of Early Espresso 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The Soft Suede layer is 3 3/4 x 5. The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. I love that piece of the Wood Textures with this card!
Cut a circle from Whisper White using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
The stamp for the lion actually has the front of the lion and the back. It's designed to make a little card or tag when cut out and folded. I used the front of the lion. Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored the lion with Blends. I used Light Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Soft Suede, and Dark Poppy Parade. The flower is part of the A Little Wild stamp set. I colored the leaves with Dark Granny Apple Green and the center with Dark Pineapple Punch. Cut out the lion and the flower with the Little Loves Framelits. You will need to use your snips to complete the cutting at the top of the lion.
The leaves are from the stamp set Tropical Chic. I stamped them in Granny Apple Green and then added some of the Shaded Spruce to the stamp with a sponge dauber. With the dark green added, clean your stamp and start over so you don't get the dark ink on your lighter pad. Cut these out with the Tropical Framelits.
Add the leaves first. Then add the lion and the flower using dimensionals. Glue down the circle. I did add some dimensionals out at the tips of the leaves to make them stand a little.
The sentiment is from the Animal Outing stamp set. The A Little Wild stamp set has this saying, but I wanted it to be larger. Stamp in Shaded Spruce and cut with with snips. I did stamp this two times. I cut the Wild and You from the first one and the about from the second. Add the words with dimensionals. How does anyone live without dimensionals?
For the inside, stamp the saying from Perennial Birthday in Shaded Spruce. Add a few leaves stamped in Granny Apple Green with Shaded Spruce daubered on them. I'm not sure daubered is a word, but I used it. It's probably a crafting term.
Thanks for stopping by today. I think this card is so cute. I hope you like it. I do love comments. Let me know!
