For my card I used another Mark's Finest Papers set called Be Virtuous. 
I stamped and masked the leaves. I used the leaves as a guidline for cutting out the top of the card. I watercolored the leaves and added black marker for shading. I paper pieced the tiger using orange cardstock. I added white highlights with a prisma colored pencil. I added some pink colored pencil to his nose and ears. A flat card is very different from my usual card.

I saw this video the other day and it is adorable. I just had to share.


  1. Wow this is beautfiul. I love the whole idea of this card.

  2. Lovely card Marylynn! I love how you used the leaves stamp in the background. And you are right that video is super cute! :)
