Our Safari themed dies are so much fun to play with – how lucky am I playing for a job! The easiest way is using them in monochrome, so there’s no colouring and they do look so effective.
The zebra card makes me think of the Madagascar film (a big family favourite) where they wonder whether Marty the zebra is black with white stripes or white with black stripes. This card illustrates it perfectly – this example has a black underneath with the white stripes over the top – oh or are the black bits the stripes – hey it doesn’t matter you can use them whichever way round you like!
The landscape border looks wonderful just diecut in black (or brown if you are doing a different colour theme). Simple cards are fun to make and very impressive.
The lion panel again looks good in a single colour – in this case, black but we have used it in shades of brown too. So quick and so effective. The little lion embellishment comes from a snippet of backing paper on the Jayne Netley Mayhew CD – and apologies, it is out of stock now but I’m sure some of you will have it. Alternatively, you can use any animal related snippet that you have.
