Die D-Lites Inspiration | Hip Llama Card with Laurie

Hello Spellbinders fans!  This is Laurie Schmidlin back with my second guest post for this month.  You can see my first Die D-Lites post here. One of the die sets that immediately caught my eye is the Hip Llama set.  Llamas are definitely trending right now and I couldn’t wait to create using this fun die set!

I started by sponging the background to create a warm, sunset look.  I then splattered the blended ink with both water and ink.  After that was dry I used a stencil to sponge on some sunshine rays.

To create the herd of llamas, I die cute the llama die seven times out of various colors of cardstock.  I think my favorite part of this die set is the sunglasses so I just had to add them to each llama!  I even added gave a few of the llamas some bow ties.  I really love how the llama die has some scored details, giving more them more definition.

For the sentiment, I die cut the Congratulations die from the Phrase Set One die set and adhered it to the top of my card.  I also added a stamped sentient to complete the card.
