The first is a hand puppet. My kids saw this and wanted one. In the end, I had them make their own. I'll show photos of those later. They're adorable! Anyway, I digress. I used the Big Shot die - Scallop Circle - in Crushed Curry for the lion's head. The oval scallop and Blush Blossom card stock make up the insides of the ears, while the wide oval punch and Chocolate Chip card stock are the ears themselves.
The eyes are the large oval (Whisper White cs), and 1/2" circle (Basic Black) punches. The nose is one of the three hearts from that punch (Basic Black). I used the black journaling marker to mark the cheeks, and cut the whiskers from Basic Black cs.
The paws are two petals cut from the largest Flower Fold (another Big Shot die) flower. Then I snipped Basic Black cs for the claws.
I used a 2" piece of Tall Tales paper, layered on Chocolate Chip behind the scallop circle, and finished the card with "thinking of you" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
