A few years ago "Punch Art" was all the go.  Now that we have access to relatively low-cost nesting dies, its fun to revisit the craft and scale it up to card size.

This lion has been made with twelve circles of various sizes (see if you can find them all, if you're keen), a large scallop circle and a heart for the nose.

All you need, apart from dies, is a base card from Regal Craft Cards, some paper (around the 140gsm weight works well), adhesive, and a white pen if you want to add some highlights to the eyes.  i pencilled in some spots and whiskers too.

This card is not exactly the same as others I've seen on-line, but I certainly acknowledge inspiration from a number of lovely lions constructed by others as punchart.  There are lots of designs that can be adapted so have a browse and perhaps you might be inspired too!  Little people would probably love this bold style of card but there's scope to use it (or other animals) as a sporting mascot card for a team supporter or as a card suited to a particular person e.g. assemble different shapes to make a specific type of dog etc.
