I was asked to make a card for a new baby named Leo. Instantly, I thought of a lion and ….well, truth be told–instantly I thought of little baby booties. But -when I discovered that I have somehow “misplaced” the left bootie in my Baby’s First Framelits collection (arg!!!), I THEN immediately thought of a lion. Zoo Babies is a great stamp set. I believe the elephant is by far the most popular stamp in the set. I feel bad for the rhino and the Fruit Loop’s bird. They don’t seem to be used much at all.
The lion –I discovered thanks to my friend Linda–has the added bonus of not just being cute but SORTA matching a punch! I HATE fussy cutting. This little guy cries out to have his head placed on a dimensional. BUT I am NOT fussy cutting that little mane! Linda showed me that the 7/8″ scallop punch pretty much does the job–and I was sold! There is not a card I make where his little head does not pop up.
So here is the final card. The colors were inspired (or stolen!) from the Sweet Li’l Things Designer Paper from Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Up! has done the work picking out colors that go together –Don’t overthink it. Someone is getting paid to overthink it. Just go with it!
Speaking of not overthinking, someone at Stampin’ Up! is in charge of making sure everything coordinates–paper, ink, Baker’s twine–You name it! Which is why you can be confident that in the end your creation will look “put together”when you purchase your supplies from them/me! So–if you are ready to get shopping, head on over here.
