Val had fun making this handsome cardstock organizer box for her craft room.  She went for the classic black and white colour scheme and constructed the box with heavy weight black cardstock.  She then printed out full A4 sheets of the Botanical Gears Steampunk Serengeti Collage Digi Stamp, A4 is slightly bigger than US letter size, and covered the outside of the box with the collage sheets.  Beautiful and functional too...I can see a whole craft room organized with the Botanical Gears theme!

"Sawbona - Hello"
Giraffe Steampunk Serengeti
Xtreme Slimline Card
by Leigh
 
 I'm back today with another gorgeous Xtreme Slimline card for our Steampunk Serengeti Blog Hop

 
This xtreme slimline card features the following from my epic new Steampunk Serengeti Collection of Digi Stamps and SVG Cutz:
Giraffe Steampunk Serengeti Xtreme Slimline Panel Digi Stamp
 
 
I used Distress Oxide Sprays as watercolours to paint my Giraffe Steampunk Serengeti Xtreme Slimline Panel Digi Stamp panel and metallic gel pens in copper, gold and silver to colour the stars and enhance the Steampunk elements of the design.
 

 
All the elements used to create the oversized slimline card are included in the Serengeti Leaves Layered Frame and Xtreme Slimline Card Cutz set.
 
 
 
To adhere the Serengeti Leaves overlay, which I cut out of 80lb black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 4, to the shadow layer cut from lime green cardstock I like to just use small dots of glue applied to just the largest areas on the back of the overlay.  Wet glue is the most forgiving coz you've got the time to maneuver and get everything lined up nicely.  I then put dots of glue on the back of the green shadow layer and mounted it onto the deep red mat layer.  I then adhered the Giraffe panel to the card with pop dots.
 
 
I cut the Xtreme Slimline Card base from heavy weight black cardstock and the 2nd mat layer included in the set from the same vintage patterned paper I used to make the matching Xtreme Slimline Envelope.
 
 
I then used the grunge senti "Sawubona Hello" from the Essential Sentiments Steampunk Serengeti Digi Stamps Set to complete this card.  I opened the digi stamp sentiment in Silhouette Studio and did a Print and Cut job to print the design with my home printer and then cut it out with an offset border using my Silhouette Cameo 4.   I then pounced Spectrum Noir Midas Gold pigment ink to the edges and mounted the sentiment to the card with pop dots.
 
 
Here's a look at the 2 Xtreme Slimline Cards I've shared so far, they're so dramatic together!
Check out my Cheetah post for more info on how I made that card!
