The Paper Players # 313 : CAS - Taste of Fall

Hi there!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend with lots of crafty time!

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players !

                                                                 

Although we don't really have Fall weather in this part of the world, I remember Fall/Autumn in South-Africa to be my favorite time of the year. Crisp blue skies and the most amazing colors of nature, just the way I like it!

Laurie is hosting this week's challenge, asking us to make a CAS card and use a Fall treat such as apples, pumpkins etc.

Here's my card :

A closer look:

Let's start at the black & white checkered pattern. It's a template or 'digital stamp' from The Pixel scrapper. I opened it in the Silhouette studio and cropped it to fit my design.

I then added my sentiment using the font Aprilla script as well as the Silhouette cut elements.

Basic chevron shape from my library of shapes, and the apple from Miss kate cuttables.

A few enamel dots to finish off the design.

I used the layout provided by Freshly made sketches.

What a great take on the sketch, Hannelie! I didn't think this sketch could be CAS :) Wonderful combination of bright red/green and black graphics.

Geri said...

You truly are a GENIUS!!! I stared at this beauty for at least a kazillion hours!!! The red and green are so vibrant and totally pop! The background pattern makes my heart sing!!!

Joanne James said...

This is so bright, colourful and modern Hannelie - a gorgeous fall and (teacher) thank you card!

Cheryl W. said...

This is such a strong graphic design, Hannelie. If your card were displayed on a rack in a store, it would be worn out from all the customers picking it up to get a closer look!

FABULOUS card! Thanks for sharing. I enjoy pixel scrapper too but regularly struggle to find just what I'm looking for. Do you have any tips for searching the site? Thanks for any hints you can share.

The abstract design as part of the Fall card is very inspiring! This is a great take on the sketch and the inspiration for my second entry for PP313! Thanks!
