Panda Thanks

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card that came together exactly as I’d planned. Don’t you love when that happens? I paired Shy Panda, a new furry friend, with a 6×6 Bold Prints cling background stamp, both from the 2015 Summer Catalog.

Forest Floor has an organic look to it—a perfect background for the panda. I clear embossed the design, and ink distressed it with two mid tone inks. To add a bit of foliage behind the panda, I created faux bamboo branches with Spring Branch Frame Cuts.


The panel was trimmed and mounted to a black layering card, and I die cut the sentiment in black to tie in the colors from the card base and panda. The branches, panda, and sentiment were adhered to the panel and finished off with a few green gemstones.

Shy Panda is a fun addition to the Hero Arts family. I can see him on bookmarks or cards for kids, or even on baby cards–such a versatile guy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
