Hello crafty friends! Welcome back to the third day of reveals of the May release at Papertrey Ink. Today we are introducing you to Build-A-Lion stamps and dies + Patriot Dies + Celebrate Freedom stamps and dies.
First up is a really fun lion you can build in so many ways! I started with some jungle colors from a paper pack by Bo Bunny. I die cut a textured frame using the Border Bling: Tin Stitch then layered a Cocoa Bean Twig die frame over that.
I had to dig deep into my PTI archives until I found a baby sentiment that would fit.

My second card is one of my favorites due to the truck! My husband has restored old cars for many years and this is a great die for masculine recipients!
I cut all but the tiny "chrome" accessories and the tires from Bristol Smooth Surface paper and color blended with Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel. Crystal Effects were added to the windshield.
