The Cactus Hillside Border is so perfect for creating desert themed scenes for our Critters in the Desert! Elise paired two layers of green cacti with a bright yellow Mr. Sun to set the stage for the adorable critters!

Audrey‘s design is so clever and absolutely gorgeous! She began by adding bright color to the background with Draped Ribbons Stencil. Then she kept Cactus Border, Giant Outlined Gracias and the Simple Puffy Cloud Frames white for beautifully unique contrast!

The Ta-Da! Diorama! Sunburst Window Add-On makes a perfect frame for Yainea’s cute desert scene! She used both the Cactus Hillside Border and just the smaller cacti from the Cactus Border to add so much fun to her design!

Elena‘s window design is so clever as it puts the focus on the cute desert vignette! I love how she layered two Cactus Hillside Borders in a circle frame, letting the cacti overlap on the sides! Then she added the cute little snake with a birthday cake in the foreground, so adorable! The Radiant Heart Backdrop is so perfect in the background. Be sure to watch the intro video below to see how to recreate this clever card!

I love how Mindy paired the Cactus Hillside Border with Desert Canyon Backdrop! It creates a scene that is so perfect for the cute Critters in Desert!

Megan added the Cactus Border to her fun file folder card design! The Critters in the Desert scene in the circle is so cute with the additional road runner border scene at the bottom. Such a clever and creative design!

Latisha combined both Cactus Border and Cactus Hillside Border to create a fun backdrop for the Sometimes Life is Prickly porcupine! So sweet!

Grace‘s window card is amazing! Secret Garden Window frames a gorgeous desert scene featuring Cactus Hillside Border! She also used Mr. Sun and Sunray Background Stencil to fill the background. Then she added the cute Fly High mouse in a hot air balloon colored to complement the Rainbow Ever After paper!

Marine‘s Critters in the Desert scene is so much fun! She used all the delightful critters and scene builder images to create a fantastic birthday card! I love how she used Cactus Border to define the background, adding great dimension to her design!

Rebecca’s happy Cactus Border design is full of sunshine with Mr. Sun and a fun greeting from Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring! I love the layers of Scalloped Fringe Border! It creates a sandy desert look that is so clever!
