Desert greetings!

Hi there!

I can clearly recall the day I stumbled upon Chrissie's blog... that was before I was even considering to blog or before I knew about CAS, or any other style of card making for that matter!

I just knew : I want to make cards like this!

After discovering Chrissie's blog... of course, I followed the link on her blog to Less is more... it took some time before I joined the fun... just watched (& learned) ... and now, I just can't wait every week to see in which way Chrissie & Jen are going to challenge the LIMettes!

Today, just more than 2 years later, I find myself writing a post as guest designer at Less is more !

So now you know how thrilled I am to share my card with you today... and don't you just think it's awesome that the theme this week is : SAND!

I have lots of sand to play with here in the desert... so here you go!


For my focal point, I've cut a geometric pattern (with my silhouette cameo) , characteristic to the Middle east ( you will find it on many mosques and other buildings). I used a spray adhesive and covered the top layer ( pattern) in the darker shade of sand. I then  created the background with the lighter shade of sand, and sealed it off with a layer of spray-able Modge Podge.



Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!

I appreciate it!

Big Congrats on the GDT over at LIM. How cool is that?!!! It's no surprise though...your work is always phenomenal! Truly. And this card is pretty darn awesome. It does remind me of the architecture of the Middle East. Love that you've used real sand too. You so rock! : ) Bev

Great card! Like the geometric pattern and the actual two tones of "real" sand! How cool is that? Congrats on being featured as a guest designer. :)

Baie geluk met die "GD" geleentheid Hannelie. Met jou mooi kaartjies kan dit ook nie anders nie. Jou kaartjie is pragtig met die bruin kleure en wat 'n uitstekende ontwerp om te pas by die tema.
