CAS – It’s a Jungle

I love creating cards for challenges.  First it’s fun creating but it’s also fun to see what everyone else does too.  The challenge I’m going to submit to is with CASology: Week 298.  The theme is Jungle.  Below are the guildelines for creating your card.

(From the site) … remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

In addition, I’m going to submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Animal Magic and TIME Out Challenge +108 Wild  Wish me luck 🙂

My card today uses this awesome Craftsmart Folder Stamp set my good friend picked up for me at Michaels Arts and Crafts for $2.00!  Picture below -what a deal!  This folder is awesome.  To create my card, I placed an A2 sized piece of cardstock inside the folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  This dry embosses the leaves onto the cardstock. I love how these leaves look!.  Next, I stamped the flamingo from the set onto a piece of white cardstock.  I found a sentiment that went well with the theme and stamped it as well, near the flamingo.  I then strategically placed a circle die over the flamingo and partially die cut.  I then used a rectangle die and placed it over the sentiment, again partially die cutting.  This created the sentiment panel that I attached to the front of the card.  I colored the flamingo with my Altenew Artist markers.   I free handed drawing some water for the flamingo to stand in and added some sun rays that the flamingo is basking in.  I trimmed the leaved embossed panel down by 1/2″ then added some glitter paper pink strips along the right and left sides.  I adhered this to my top folding card.  My flamingo and sentiment panel are mounted with foam tape with a bit of sparkly added to give some sunny shimmer.  I hope you like!

  1. You made such a gorgeous background with the embossing folder. Looks so clean and nicely done. The pink flamingo gives the card a lovely focal point . I also love how you coolored the water under the flamingo. Delightful and warm card!

  2. Your card is fabulous and has so many great details! That embossing folder is awesome and I really love how you used partial die cutting to create that cool shaped panel. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
