Llama Get This Straight Shaker

Hey friends, this is Tanya again! I am playing with Llama Get This Straight, and I decided to make a shaker card this time. This adorable llama just cries out for bright colors and bling!

The shaker body was made with 4 layers of white cardstock diecut with a coverplate and then a stitched rectangle die. There is a piece of acetate between the top two layers.

The sequins are from my stash, and were chosen to match the colors I used to color the blanket. But there are gobs of fantastic shaker packs that would have worked well for this in the store!

You can see some gray streaks on the white frame, which was a complete accident. I had used the coverplate to die cut a watercolored panel I had stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and there was some ink left on the coverplate die. But I really like it! You could replicate it but gently swiping a gray ink pad over some white cardstock.

The llama and tassels are colored with Copic markers:

  • Face and fur: W00, W01, W03, R20
  • Green: G03, G05
  • Yellow: Y17, Y38
  • Purple: V17, FV2

The llama and the tassels were fussy cut. I also used Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens in clear, black, and white to add accents to the llama.

The sentiment strip matches perfectly because I used V17 to color a scrap of white cardstock before I white heat embossed the sentiment on it. This was then diecut with a stitched rectangle die from my stash.

I kept it super simple on the inside. We all need birthday cards, right?!

So, does this llama look ready to party? I sure think so!
