CASology – [Zodiac] Birthday

There is still time to play along with the CASology challenge – Zodiac!

I thought I’d post some more inspiration for you:

Birthday Leo | by karen h @ carefree creations

When this cue was put forward as a challenge, my first thought was doing something with a lion (cuz I’m a leo). I didn’t have anything! So, I ordered 🙂 I went ahead with my other plan for my official DT post.

To make this card, the die I chose actually cuts lots of shapes – the mane obviously, but also the eyes, nose, ears, and even the legs. I cut the image twice – once from Saffron and once from Dijon. Then I used a marker to color the eyes & nose instead of cutting again from black.

I stamped the Leo constellation in the background and used partial inking to get the word “Leo” only.

You have another week to get your card made – hope you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Karen, I love this! I totally forgot about that lion die – I’m pretty sure I have it somewhere… Thanks for the inspiration to go and dig it out, my fellow Leo!

  2. Really love that you gave your lion a zodiac background Karen! Glad it’s not just me that orders stamps so I can join in with a challenge…! Vicky x
