Lion's Heart

Over at The Hybrid Chick, we've started another Card Caravan. This time around the theme is to use hearts.  We'd love to see you join in with your paper or hybrid projects, so stop by!

I made this card using the digital paper pack A Lil' Bit Girly by Wishing Well Creations.  I went a little crazy with hearts on my card! With the exception of the straight piece to the tail and the googly eyes, everything else on the lion is made from hearts. I cut 8 hearts from brown paper and embossed them to create the main.  A smaller embossed brown heart made the tip of the tail. Two small brown hearts are the inner ears and a third one makes the nose.

3 hearts cut from yellow paper made the face and body/legs.  Two smaller yellow hearts make up the ears.

I inked the edges of the papers to help add depth and dimension.  Double sided foam adhesive helps to pop the lion on the front of the card.  I thought this little critter would make a great Valentine Card!
