What makes you happy? How about a Happy Llama birthday card created with our friends at Whimsy Stamps? Make it special by creating your own background with colors on your card.  I make mine so I don’t have to worry about having the right color of decorative paper on hand.  Today’s card shows how to make a pretty diagonal striped background with Crafty Power Tape and embossing powders to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. It’s the final day of our collaboration with Whimsy Stamps over on Instagram so after you visit here, visit our hop! The link is towards the end of the post!

Arrange the Card Layers

  • Stamp the Llama on watercolor paper with Onyx Black Ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Watercolor the image with Inktense Pencils.
  • Die-cut the Llama panel and a blue panel with a Notched Rectangle Die.
  • Glue these two panels together with Dual Tip Glue Pen and move the panels so they are offset and the blue panel is peaking out from behind the Llama.
  • Adhere this on top of the embossed panel using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser and set aside.
  • Repeatedly stamp Llama on a white cardstock panel with light blue ink and attach to a blue card using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser.
  • Pop up the completed panels on the card using 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

Let’s Work on Happy

  • Apply a piece of an Adhesive Sheet to white cardstock, place the Happy Large Word die on top of the Adhesive Sheet and run it through your die-cutting machine.
  • Remove the liner from the top of the Adhesive Sheet, sprinkle with Rose Gold Embossing Powder and heat emboss.
  • Die-cut two additional Happy pieces from blue cardstock and glue these together using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.  
  • Now glue the embossed Happy on top of the blue Happy, offsetting it so that the blue can be seen under it.
  • Place 3D Foam Squares Micro White underneath each letter at the top of the letter.  Now place a second 3D Foam Square Micro on top of the first and pop it up on the card.
