I started by sponging some Sahara Sand Ink onto a Whisper White scrap. Once I'd gotten just a bit of color laid down, I stamped the llama from the "Birthday Fiesta" set in Soft Suede. I cut him out with the matching Fiesta Time Framelit. I also cut some banners from the same framelit set from a piece of Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.
Next, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo Ink onto another piece of the Festive Birthday DSP and cut it out with one of the Layering Ovals Framelits. I cut another scalloped oval from Whisper White Card Stock and layered these two pieces together.
I ran a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of Tempting Turquoise through the Big Shot with the Festive Folder and then adhered it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered this to a Melon Mambo Card Stock card base.
I adhered all the elements--the banner, the llama, and the sentiment--to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used one of the DSP banners as the llama's blanket. Finally, I added a Tempting Turquoise Enamel Heart to the card for a finishing touch.
Goodbye, Mr. Llama! I'm going to miss you.
