  • 6 Sheets of Assorted Color Premium Cardstocks
  • Printed Outline of Llama or Select Template from Die Cut
  • Glue Stick

Step 1:

Cut out a cardstock slightly smaller than the card. Create a trim around the card. Glue the cardstock to the card.

Step 3:

Use the remaining card stocks to cut out squares to make presents, saddle, and inner ears. Feel free to layer as many colors and patterns as you like.

Step 4:

Glue each layers on starting with the llama, presents, saddle and ears. You can use the foam mounting squares to raise the llama on the birthday card for a 3D effect. This step is optional but very trendy in card making.

Step 5:

Use the black pen to draw eyes, nose, smile and feet.

Step 6:

Use the P-touch Embellish tape ribbon to create the message. Insert the Pastel Purple cartridge. Type in Happy Birthday. Select the Helsinki font. Make sure the size, style and width are all normal. Print and trim a V on each ends of the tape.
