Mission ... Impossible (card!)

Hi friends! 
There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers and it's impossible.
The Impossible Card, that is!
Lynn, our hostess for the month of July, gave us this challenge
and I love her for that!

I don't think I would have trusted myself

 to even attempt this card fold on my own.
It did take a little wine research on YouTube 
and, llama tell you, it really isn't as hard as it looks!

It also helped that I got to play with my Gerda Steiner Llama Tell You
stamp set to set the stage for this Impossible Card.
I absolutely ADORE this stamp set
and llamas are at the tippy top list of my very, very, VERY favorites! ♥ 

Here's what it looks like from an aerial view ↑

With this card fold, I used a standard A2 size.
It's easy to adjust to a larger card size but for me, this works.
And it lays completely flat to fit nicely into an envelope!

I went with limeade splash cardstock to play off the outdoorsy theme,
and chose two Echo Park paper pads: Happy Camper and Summer Dreams 
to bring out the colors and create variety.
I colored all the cute critters with promarkers
and the sentiments were stamped on cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Ink.
The sentiments in this stamp set are hysterical!

To see all the of the DT cards, head over to the CCEE Stampers blog 
for more inspirations with the Impossible Card.

If you'd like to play along and make your own, no prob-llama!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
