Party Panda Note Card

The little panda in this set holding an envelope is just perfect for a note card. I'm using these for my February customer thank you notes, so I needed to design a card that was quick and easy to mass produce.


The panda holding the envelope was perfect for a notecard. I stamped "Hi" in the envelope for an added touch.  Just love it!

The sentiment comes from the Better Together set, and it was just perfect for this notecard!

Party Pandas Baby Card

Although these cute little pandas are perfect for bright and cheery birthday and celebration cards, they are equally as perfect surrounded by soft, subtle colors for a baby card.


With some masking, I made the panda floating holding three balloons (instead of one balloon as in the stamp).


The middle piece of Whisper White was embossed with the new Scattered Sequin embossing folder, and a few jewel rhinestones were scattered around on it. 

The little bow under the stamped image ties it all together for a beautiful baby card!

Party Panda Fun Fold Card

This fun fold is a great way to spice up your cards  . . . and it's super simple to do!  Opening the card is like opening a special package!


Once the card is untied, the left flap is opened.  The square piece with the adorable panda is attached to the side flap.


Once the side flap is opened, the entire inner panel shows off the bright, cheery colors in the Bubbles and Fizz DSP.

And once that panel is opened, the inside of the card has a birthday greeting that pops off of the bright Bermuda Bay mat.

To see step by step directions to make this card, see the video below.  NOTE:  If  you are seeing this post via an email notification, the video may not appear due to security settings.  In that case, you can see the video HERE.

Heat Embossed Embossing Paste

The embossing paste used on this card was heat embossed with gold embossing powder, and the effect is just spectacular!  The depth of the embossed paste adds such dimension to this card. I love the look of the rich gold against the dark Night of Navy card stock.


The embossing paste has such a beautiful texture -- although it can be embossed in any color, I think the gold is perfect!

To keep the gold embossing theme, I also embossed the sentiment, which come from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.


To see how this technique was done, click on the video below.  NOTE: If you are viewing this post via an email notification, the video may not appear due to security settings.  In that case, you can see the video HERE.
