Wishing You a Pandastic Birthday

January 23, 2023 in Sunny Studio - 2 Comments

Happy Monday!

I’m sharing a cute and fun birthday card today featuring the new Panda Party Stamps!

To start this card, I cut a piece of white cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and created a confetti effect by splattering a little watered down Distress inks with a paintbrush. I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron. I heat embossed the sentiment in the upper right corner and adhered this piece to the top of an A2 card base.

Next, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Jewel Tones Paper 2” x 4 1/4″ and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. I then cut 1” x 4 1/4″ strips from 3 more of the papers and die-cut the bottom edge of each using one of the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies. I overlapped and adhered these pieces below the white cardstock. I used the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies again to die-cut a piece of black cardstock, cut it to 4 1/4″ long and adhered it across the bottom of the white cardstock.

For the present, I cut a rectangle 1” x 1 1/4″ from white cardstock and die-cut a bow using the Sweet Treat House Add-on Dies. I used the windowpane portion of the Wonderful Windows Dies for the ribbon, adhered the die-cut piece to the rectangle and trimmed off the excess along the edges. I colored these elements with Copics.

To finish, I stamped the images on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I used the following stamps and dies:
