I diecut a the giraffe and lion’s cage from ivory cardstock and then stamped the coordinating images from Circus Spectacular on each. I also cut a ticket strip from Taffy cardstock and then stamped a couple of the ticket images. I tore the tickets apart before adhering to the card using foam dimensionals. Behind all of the images (and a piece of burlap ribbon) I added a piece or red cardstock cut with the largest die from the Designer Labels 4 STAX.
This set was a lot of fun to play with – I’m excited to see what the rest of the team created!
