Fa La La Llama Card

'tis the season to be jolly, Fa La La La La La La LLama...

Today I'm on the Heffy Doodle blog with this super cute holiday card featuring the new Llamazing Llamas stamps and dies and Arizona stencil! Keep reading if you wanna know how I made that "llama" word die cut!

I started with the background: I used the Arizona stencil on a piece of Heffy Doodle white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire for the sky, then I used Black Soot for the mountains and for darken up the edges of the sky. I left it aside for a few minutes then I splattered it with white acrylic paint; once it was dry I used the biggest Imperial Stitched Rectangles die to cut it.

I stamped the cute Llamazing llamas and their scarfes on alcohol friendly cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic Markers using the following colors:

LLAMAS: W00, W01, W03, W05 - E00, E02, R20
BLUE SCARFS: B00, B02, B05, B06
RED SCARFS: R20, R22, R27, R29

I made highlights with a white gel pen and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I fussy cut the scarves and made a couple of them shorter 'cause I didn't want them to look all the same, then I glued them over the llamas.

Now to the sentiment! I used the Stitched Alphabetters on white glittered foam to die cut the FA LA LA letters, but they were too big to fit the "llama" too in the card. I looked through my word dies stash and I realised that the Get Well Soon die had the ll I needed... so I ended up cutting it twice from coral cardstock and I turned the g into a and obtained the m by merging two n.

At this point, I made a hill using the biggest Imperial Stitched Rectangles die and a Slimline scenery die on a piece of white cardstock. I lightly blended some Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass at the bottom and added Lawn Fawn Chunky glitter on the hillside for some extra sparkle. I glued the hill to the base and used foam squares to put the llamas in place, then I added the sentiments on top. For the card base I used white/red striped cardstock.

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed my card and see you soon!

Happy crafting.
