Rainbow Llama Christmas Card ft. Stampin' Up

EDIT:  Winner at AAA Cards / Top 3 at ATCAS / Cas-ual Fridays Favorite
Who says Christmas cards can't be rainbow colored?! Today I have this bright non-traditional Christmas card for you. It features Fa-la-la-la Friends, one of the stamp sets from Stampin' Up's holiday catalog. I just love the punny sentiment and this silly llama. :P

To make this CAS one layer card, I first stamped my image onto watercolor cardstock. After covering it with a mask, I heat embossed 8 rows of "fa-la-la-la-llama" sentiments with Wow white pearl embossing powder.

I then watercolored the sentiment backdrop and the little bulbs with 4 colors of distress inks. 

To finish off this card, I adhered a few iridescent sequins to the card front. This card is super easy and quick to create. It also works with a lot of images and sentiments, so I hope you'll want to give it a try. :)
