I'm not lion.....

Hmmm. Instead of cleaning house and putting away my Christmas stuff (yes, I still have Christmas up) I decided to make Valentine cards. Nothing wrong with that, is there?

Here's a shot of one I made this afternoon. The cute little lion is a rubber stamp from Alias, Smith and Rowe. I've had it for at least 12 years....

I stamped it in black onto a pale yellow card stock and colored using Tomboy markers. I embossed the eyes and nose with some fine black embossing powder. I layered this onto a piece of red card stock

I then layers a strip of patterned card stock (with reds and yellows) over a strip of red card stock. I then used my laser printer to print the verse for the front of the card onto deep yellow card stock and layered the whole thing onto a piece of white card stock.

And here's the inside.....

I did have a ton of fun making this cute card. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. That is so adorable! Any age or gender would like this one. I like your printed out sentiment to go with it too. I need to work on some kid type cards as well. This design I know would appeal to the younger crowd.
