Ribbon Tab Lion (prepare for cute overload)

Oh, man.  Sometimes the cuteness that comes out of my basement is a little too much for me.  I created this little lion card for this week's Create: blog challenge where the challenge was to use ribbon tabs in our creation. 
Finished card size is 5 1/4"x5 1/4"
Here is how I put the lion together:
  • Use the Cricut Create-a-Critter cart for the lion and cut three lions total, two solid lions and one with facial cutouts.
  • Cut the heads off of one solid lion and the piece with cutouts.  (Sorry, I just couldn't resist).
  • Staple the ribbon tabs to the head.  Adhere to the whole solid lion. 
  • Cut layers and assemble face.  Adhere face to mane with foam.
Printed paper (American Crafts)
Ribbon (May Arts)
Stamp (Hero Arts)
The rest is scraps from my stash.

Overall, it was pretty easy and I think the result is to die for!  I think I will make a couple more lions just to put around the house to make me smile!
