Panda Perfection

I have a special place in my heart for pandas. 

Years ago I was sat on my Grandad's knee as a little girl and there was a panda on the tv. Apparently I turned to my Grandad, patted his belly and said the name of the panda. It stuck and I still call him it today as do my children. 


I bought his this panda with my pocket money on holiday one year and when I bought my first house he sent it to live with me. It is totally out of place and matches nothing but the sentimental value is enormous and it is staying.

I saw this cute panda stamp on the Clearly Besotted Website and just knew I had to have it.

There is a video in my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies used

1 Piece of White Card for stamp
1 Piece A4 card for the Card Base
Distress Ink In Tattered Rose 
Post it's for masking
Panel Die from Paper Discovery (used as a stencil)
Mint Green Ribbon
Strip of Tiny Pearl Gems
Dovecraft Embossing Stamp Ink
Papermania Embossing Powder in Black

Instructions

I stamped and heat embossed the pandas onto a piece of white card measuring 6 Inch by 4 Inch. These were then masked using post it notes.

I used the panel die as a stencil and blended the area in Tattered Rose


The panel was glued onto a white card base measuring 6 1/4 Inch by 8 1/4 Inch and scored at 4 1/8th Inch.


Mint green ribbon was glued just under the top fold. 

bow created and secured just to the left of the centre

A row of tiny Pearl gems where stuck just under the pandas to give a finishing touch
