Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca Christmas card

Hello everyone and welcome to the new challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenges

The months are flying past and I can't believe we are halfway through the year already!

Our themes this month are

N - No Fuss
 O - Over the Top

The lovely Samantha is our Host and there is a prize for the winner.

I made TWO cards this time
( there is a first time for everything!)

N for no fuss

I made a no fuss design using the Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca stamp set, simply coloured with Copics and framed with a Penny Black frame

Then I tried O for Over the Top

I'm not so comfortable with fancy cards, but I did my best with this one using an impulse buy Tonic Window Box die called Naive Neillia for some reason!

I really went over the top by adding some Penny Black baubles with glittery card and a fancy script white merry Christmas die-cut sentiment.

I hope you will stop by the blog and see some fantastic inspiration from the team.

I'd like to play along at

Good for you making a card for each, Carol! I love that frame around the alpaca--so cute! Over the top for sure with your beautiful red & white card!

The red and White card is a real showstopper and the Alpaca card is adorable Carol x. Well done making the two cards x.

I hate when life flies by so fast, but with this year and this pandemic, I am ok with it flying by! lol Not really but hopefully it will help us to get through this pandemic faster or faster feeling at least. Your cards are amazing Carol! I love the alpha card, it is so cute, sweet and simple. That die cut frame-I'm in love with it. Then there is your bendy card! Wow, I've not even attempted to try one of these. Yours looks so elegant in the red and white, so festive, so happy! Well done on both of these cards. Hugs, Brenda

Lindsey said...

LOL about making two cards... it's the pandemic, everything is different! Your sweet little llama is perfectly framed. Your over-the-top card is gorgeous!

Arlene said...

I love the "no fuss" alpaca card because it's crisp and simple. Your "over the top" card is fun and bright and cheery - great job, by the way in the design for this bendy card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our "Christmas in July" challenge.
