Hello Crafty Friends! Today I am sharing a Llama card for Lawnatics Challenge #128- Christmas in July. I have to admit, I am not quite feeling the Christmas vibes yet so my card was inspired by a warmer climate which is how I came up with a Llama themed card using cactus plants as Christmas trees.
To start, I die cut 5 pieces of White Cardstock using the largest die in the Stitched Scallop Borders set. I then die cut two orange, one red, and one blue Stitched Scallop Borders. I layered and glued the borders onto a piece of White Cardstock 4.25″ x 5.5.”
For the Llama, I die cut the head, body, face, cheeks, ears, and two furry pieces out of White Cardstock. I die cut two more furry pieces out of Fog Cardstock. The hooves were die cut out of Black Licorice Cardstock. I ink blended the face with Butter ink. The cheeks and ears were ink blended with Ballet Slippers. I added a scarf from Woodland Critter Huggers. The scarf was ink blended using the Skinny Stripes Stencil with Lobster, Carrot, Mermaid, and Fresh Cut Grass inks.
The cactus tree was ink blended with Fresh Cut Grass and I splattered white paint for interest. I added stars from Puffy Stars Stackables and lights from String of Lights. I wanted to create a basket for the planter so I die cut the “x” pattern die in the Stitched Border Die set onto the planter. I then lightly inked the planter with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I added “lace” using the smallest Stitched Scallop Borders.
I finished off the card by adding white embossed sentiment onto Chili Pepper and Fake Tan cardstock.
The Challenge is open until Sunday, July 17th at 11:59PM ET. All entries will have a chance to win a $50 Lawn Fawn gift certificate and you will also have a chance to be featured in the Lawn Fawnatics Blog!
