Happy Mail - Panda

Hi everyone! Jeannie, back here today to share a fun card for you. I've been taking part of the 30 day coloring challenge and boy, it's been tough! I challenged myself to create a finished product each day as a result of the challenge.

Today, I woke up super early because I couldn't sleep and decided to wake up to create a card. I know the shop is closed right now, but you can still pull out the sets you have and create!

For me, I pulled out Lovely Pandas and the Happy Mail Bunny, which was a free gift promo a couple months ago. I thought these two went together so well! For the Happy Mail Bunny, it's a super small set but it packs such a punch. I used the envelope from that set to stamp in a light grey ink for a background. Later on, I create a ton of masks for the envelopes and added a light blue distress ink to add a bit of color.



Using the Lovely Pandas set, I stamped and masked the Panda so he's sitting on top of the pile of hearts. He's super adorable and just seems to happy to be sending happy mail!


For the sentiment, I heat embossed the "happy mail" sentiment from the Happy Mail Bunny on black cardstock with white embossing powder. It makes it really pop.



I love how this card turned out! I hope you take this little store break to pull out your older sets to use!
