Party Lion -an Action Wobble card

Last year, my friend Ruthie of SeptemberNinth blog, sent me a pack of Action Wobble springs. Thanks, Ruthie! :-) I have been wanting to use it but never really got around to it. When I saw the lion from the Nancy's Buddies Cut Its, I realize that it was PERFECT for an Action Wobble project.

Using Make-the-Cut, I arranged all the elements of the card in a 4.25" x 5.5" rectangle. As I have mentioned, the lion is from Nancy's Buddies, while the birdie, the present and the party hat are from Nancy's Party. The grass is also from Nancy's Buddies. I modified a banner from the Banner Days SVG with the LD Little Piggy font. By the way, Banner Days is a FREE set that is added into your LD library when you open an account there. If you don't already have an account, click HERE to get one.

Once I finished the layout, I cut all the layers out with Make-the-Cut and my Silhouette Cameo.

All the cutouts were adhered together with glue and foam tape, except for the lion's head where I used an Action Wobble.

You may notice that the birdie was initially not included in my original design. It was added later when I saw room for it on the card.

The birdie measures only 1" wide and I flocked it with 2 shades of yellow.

I also changed my mind about how I wanted the banner to look. In fact, I even changed the "S" pennant into a " 'S " (with the apostrophe) so that I have enough room to add a "!" (exclamation mark) pennant.

For those of you who have not seen the Action Wobble in action, I made a short video for you. Please turn DOWN your volume before playing the video. I forgot I was recording with my camera and I was speaking too close to it so that I started off by sounding like I was yelling even though I wasn't. Sorry about that!
