Sharing a sweet card today with a little panda in his stylish home who would love some company!
I had a lot of fun creating this living room for my panda. I started with the wall and floor of the scene. First, I die-cut of piece of paper from the Subtle Grey Tones Paper using the second largest Stitched Rectangle Die. For the floor, I embossed a piece of light gray cardstock using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and die-cut the piece twice using the ribbon die from the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies. I cut the ribbon pieces into “planks” and adhered 2 rows to the bottom of the die-cut paper piece. I then trimmed the excess from the right and left edges.
Next, I matted the paper piece on black cardstock and matted it again on green cardstock that I die-cut using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered these combined pieces to the center of an A2 card front.
For the window, I die-cut the smaller window from the Wonderful Windows Dies from black cardstock. I traced around the outside of the die-cut window with a pencil on white cardstock, cut it out with scissors and inked a light blue sky with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I die-cut the Autumn Tree Die from white cardstock, colored the branches with Copics and adhered portions of the branches to the right side of the sky piece. I trimmed off the excess along the right edge. I then die-cut leaves and flowers from the Wonderful Windows Dies from white cardstock, colored the flowers with Copics and inked the leaves with Twisted Citron Distress ink. After adhering them to the branches, I adhered the black window frame to the sky piece and adhered the window 2” from the bottom of the card and 1” from the right side.
Next, I stamped the panda from the Panda Party Stamps and the pillows/sofa from the Cozy Christmas Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and fussy cut them out. I decided the little panda needed a houseplant so I die-cut a small tag topper from the Stitched Arch Dies from white cardstock and colored it with Copics to resemble a basket planter. For a tall plant, I inked white cardstock with Rustic Wilderness Distress ink and die-cut a small fern leaf from the Spring Greenery Dies.
To finish, I stamped the “Miss You” sentiment from the Big Bold Greetings Stamps in Versamark ink on black cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and die-cut it using the coordinating dies. To add a little more color, I die-cut the coordinating “Miss You” die from light blue cardstock and layered the sentiment slightly overlapping it.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
