Playful Pandas

Hi there,

Just a quick post this morning, with another Asian card.  I decided to use the cute Panda stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle, to make a masculine birthday card for an "older" Gentleman!  I recently picked up the Darice Bamboo embossing folder, which I love.  So that is what I used for my background.

I also used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Cloud Nine (Velvet Glitter) for the panda's white fur.  Unfortunately you can't feel it through the computer, but it is glitter with a fuzzy feel.  It's so versatile - check out the Tips and Techniques Section of Sparkle N Sprinkle, scroll down to Glitter - Velvet, to see some of the ways the designers have used it!

Here's the card, and the link to my gallery, if you need full directions:


Hope you're having a good day.  I'm off to hopefully put a dent in my Christmas cards!

  2. How darling, Shona! Love those playful pandas, but the shading of your bamboo and sentiment look really awesome! As children in southern CA, we used to play in huge bamboo forests like this and build forts. It was a fun place to go back in the safer days of neighborhood kids playing together. Is your base cardstock green? Or did you distress that to match everything else? Pretty card, Shona! ((hugs))
