Hello everyone, today I’m sharing clean and simple die cutting ideas using beautiful supplies by Simon Says Stamp.
I initially thought of making a baby themed project but I changed my mind and I made the kind of projects you can share any time.
The card measures C6 American stand size card ( 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ inches), and the tag 3 ” x 5″ inches.
Big Picture Book Lion die / head, measures: 3-1/2″ x 3-/12″ inches.
I first die cut the lion head out of yellow, pink, black and patterned paper to get the different parts I needed in each colour. I then put the pieces together and glued them on a white piece of cardtsock. I trimmed around the edges.
Next, I use oval dies to make the body and the little lion paws.
I had the idea to add the lion’s body in a different way so he looks as if he were kneeling down in a playful position … in this way, I could also add an extra cute tail to the lion.
To make the tail, I simply made a mini tassel. I wrapped it around the tip of a piece of twine. I was applying glue as I was doing this.
I cut the grass out of green cardstock and I used the Mini Flowers and Leaves die to create tiny florals out of red cardstock.
To finish, I also die cut a C6 white piece of cardstock using a large scallop oval die and I overlaid all the die cuts behind.
The tag was made with the extra die cuts I got from die-cutting the pieces for the card. Easy and quick.
That’s all for today … I hope you like these ideas!
