Jungle Fun at Cardz 4 Guyz

Today's new challenge day at Cardz 4 Guyz and our theme is Jungle Fun. We've decided to give everyone a chance to relax over summer, so for the time being our challenges will be every two weeks instead of every week, starting from today. We're also looking for two people to join us on the design team, so head over to the blog to see how to apply. Anyone who enjoys making cards suitable for men is welcome to apply - and don't panic if you've never been on a design team before: neither had I when I joined this lovely friendly team!

For the background I used Kraft card and a Uniko tropical leaves stamp set. First I stamped solid leaves with Versamark ink, and then the outline leaves in black randomly over the top.

The lion is from Woodware's Jungle Pals stamp set, stamped and coloured twice with some elelemnts of the second image fussy cut and layered over the first to add dimension. The frog and sentiment are from another Woodware set, In the Jungle. Punched leaves and a couple of die cut circles finish the card.

I was a bit uncertain about whether a lion was a jungle animal, as I associate them with the plains, but since the stamp set says so, and so does the song "The lion sleeps tonight", I'm voting for it to be a jungle animal!

Yep, definitely a jungle animal! Love the background you created on the kraft card. Cara x

Great card, Jane, I love how you've made it 3D. The lion is referred to as 'The King of the Jungle' so I think you're safe using him as your jungle animal. :-) xx

Great card. I love how your lion is hiding in the leaves.

Great card Jane - love the big leaves which give it a very jungly (is that a word?) feel.
