#stampinup #saleabration2018 #faithfulinkspirations #FF0003 The Festive Friday challenge is a fun one this time! The challenge is to use either something that celebrates national panda day or black and white or both!
My card is a little bit panda and a little bit black and white and a whole lot of festive!
I'd seen a card nearly like this one that used the "Party Panda" set to make a panda selfie and I thought it was cute. I started out with an idea just to do the selfie, but once I'd cut out all my elements, I decided making it a panda selfie shaker card was just the thing!
I cut a piece of striped Picture Perfect Party 6" by 6" Designer Series paper to 3-3/4" by 5" and adhered it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock mat and then onto a Berry Burst Card Stock card base. I cut a 2-5/8" square out of a 3-1/4" by 3-3/4" Whisper White piece using one of the Layering Squares Framelits. I stamped the party hat panda from "Party Pandas" in Basic Black Archival Ink onto the cut-out square and colored his hat with Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers. I adhered this piece directly to the card.
Then I adhered a 3" Window Sheet square to the back of the larger Whisper White piece. I framed the back side of the window outline with Foam Adhesive Strips and added a row of Stampin' Dimensionals at the bottom. I dropped a bunch of Metallics Sequins onto the panda and then adhered the Whisper White frame on top.
Finally, I cut a 1" strip of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock and flagged the end with the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the "Picture Perfect Birthday" set in Night of Navy and then adhered this to the card.
I think this card is really cute and it was amazingly simple and fast, too!
