Fa La La La Llama Card | Newton's Nook Designs

Hello friends! Christmas is almost here and I think that maybe I've made my final Christmas card of the year. Are your Christmas cards ready? Now, I just need to get them in the mail! 

Today, I'm sharing a Fa La La La Llama Christmas card I created using some fabulous products from Newton's Nook Designs and  I've also got a fun little technique to share with you using one of their new stencils.

Fa La La La Llama Card


I have to admit, I've fallen in love with the adorable Llama from the Llama Delivery Stamp Set and I'm sure he'll be showing up again in future projects! To get started on this card, I began by stamping and coloring the Llama using my Chameleon Pens. I then die cut the image using the coordinating dies.

Next I moved on to creating the background for the card. I was inspired by this beautiful card created by Yoonsun Hur. She was a recent guest designer over on the Newton's Nook Design Blog. I loved the look of the white on kraft cardstock however, I didn't have any embossing paste so I went with the supplies I had on hand to get a similar look.

Heat Embossing with Stencils


I positioned the Snowfall Stencil onto a piece of kraft cardstock and then inked it up with a Versamark Embossing Ink Pad. To do this, I simply stamped the ink pad over and over again on top of the stencil. I occasionally lifted a corner of the stencil to make sure I was getting good coverage. Once it was fully inked, I removed the stencil and sprinkled the cardstock with white embossing powder and then heat set it with a heat gun. I then took my new favorite die set and die cut the embossed paper using the rounded corner shape from the Frames and Flags Die Set.

For the sentiment, I die cut a banner from red cardstock using the stitched banner from the Frames and Flags Die Set. I then stamped the Fa La La sentiment from the Sentiments Of The Season Stamp Set and embossed it with white embossing powder.

For the final touch, I die cut some holly leaves and berries using the Pines & Holly Die Set.
