Llama for a Baby


My daughter gave me very specific instructions for a card she wanted me to make for her friend's new baby : it had to have a llama and the baby's name and birth stats. 

This was a job for my Silhouette Cameo digital cutter! I don't have any llama stamps or cutting files but I found a llama clipart on my PC and traced, layered and cut it out , incorporating the baby's name. 

This is the clipart I used.

As a basis for my card shape, I used a Lori Whitlock cutting file that I've adapted several times before to make these kind of box pop-up cards. I traced  a cactus from the same clipart set and cut it twice , one time, with the birth stats. Finally, I stamped and embossed the three sentiments, all from different sets. 

I'd like to enter:

Now THAT'S a fun project! Just the kind of thing I love to do with my Silhouette. It turned out great! To me, it looks like the inside of the baby's nursery!
