White Llama

Hi, Lois here with a really quick and easy card today.  While the CottageCutz design team is waiting for the next release, we have been using previously released dies during our "throwback month."  I used Traveling Llama and Spring Grass today.  The other day while I was in Hobby Lobby, I saw some cool llama patterned paper and decided to build my card around it. 

I started by cutting the llama from a scrap piece of white cardstock.  I decided that my llama was not "traveling" today, so I didn't use any of the suitcases.

I colored him with Copic markers and glued him together.  One of the things I really like about CottageCutz dies is the details -- like the tassels on the strap 

I then cut my cardstock.

Red - 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2"; 2 1/2" x 4"
Brown - 1 1/2" x 4"
Llama patterned paper - 3" x 4"
Sky patterned paper - 2 3/8" x 3 7/8"

I also cut a strip of grass using the Spring Grass die.

I then constructed my card base, adding a strip of ribbon over the seam of brown/llama paper pieces.

I adhered the llama with foam pop dots onto the smaller panel and added the strip of grass, trimming on each side to fit.  I then stamped some birds in the sky.

I glued the llama panel to the card, and I was finished.

CottageCutz dies used on this card are:

This llama die is so cute - he seems to have attitude! The paper is just perfect for this!
