Sunset - Safari - Silhouette

Hi there!

Time to take a break from all the pretty florals today with my three s's card ... ah , I can add a 4th one... stripes !

The initial plan was to create a beautiful blended background for my little African sunset scene... then I got lazy creative and decided to go for colored card stock strips, using those never ending scraps!

I used :

  • African-wildlife cutting file from Apex Cuttables
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Strips of colored card stock
  • Sentiment from BIG-BIRTHDAY-WISHES ~ Simon Says Stamp
  • Foam dots for dimension

 Sharing my card at :

AAA cards  ~ Sketch and optional twist animals

Seize the birthday ~ No toppings :)

Time out challenges ~ Inspired by words ( I was inspired by the word "sunshine" for my sunset background)


Thanks for visiting me today!

What a creative way to make the background and so effective. The scene looks stunning and still so wonderfully CAS. Thank you for joining us at Time Out

Oh fantastic use of leftover strips and I can't believe how much you've packed into this strip and maintained the CAS style at the same time. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

Oh Hannelie, you really do make the most stunning cards. This is such an eyecatching CAS card! I particularly love that sun! Hopefully someone will make a die like that one day (I don't have an electronic die cutter!)
