C elebrate a special occasion with this adorable Panda.
Begin by preparing your card stock. I typically will create more than one card at a time. I usually will do at least two.
The ingredients below are what you need to make one card.
Pool Party: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" score this in half to make a base that is 4 1/4" w x 5 1/2" h
Whisper White: 4" x 5 1/4" (2)
Calypso Coral: 4" x 1 1/2"
Using the Big Shot and the Celebrate You Thinlit cut "Celebrate" from the Calypso Coral card stock. Put aside for now you will adhere after you have stamped the card front.
Using the Color Me Happy Stamp set, stamp the images using the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink.
Stamp the curved line onto one of the pieces of whisper white card stock.
Stamp the lantern starting in the middle, have the hanger on the later just touching the curved line you stamped.
Stamp the Panda so one foot is just touching the line. If it does not touch you can add movement lines (seen on the sample) to make it seem like the panda is dancing on the line.
You can also use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to lie everything up. This is very helpful when you are using wood mount stamps.
Stamp sentiment of your choice on the other piece of whisper white card stock
Color the lanterns using the Stampin' Blends. You can remove color from the middle of the lantern using the color lifter to make it seem like the lantern is lit.
Color the party hat on the panda.
Adhere the stamped card front onto the pool party card base.
Adhere the "celebrate" phrase above the panda. It's ok if it covers the party hat a little.
Adhere the whisper white card stock you stamped the sentiment on to the inside of the pool party card base.
TADAH you are done!
