One Layer Valentine's Day Card - Lovely Pandas

Happy Saturday! It's Rebekah here, bringing you a one layer, easy Valentine's Day Card! I was so excited to see this week that the Lovely Pandas stamp set was back in stock at the Gerda Steiner store! It's easy to see why this set has been so popular. These images are simply adorable and so fun to color!



This is a one layer, quick and easy Valentine's Day card that would be perfect to give to your significant other, a child or even a friend. There is a little masking involved but really the process is simple! 

Step 1. On a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded card base, stamp the hearts image towards the bottom of the card. Stamp the hearts again on masking paper and fussy cut.

Step 2. Place the hearts mask over the hearts on the card base then stamp the panda. Remove the mask and color the images with your whichever color medium you would like! I used Copic markers.

Step 3. Mask off 1/4 inch around the edge of the card then using a light gray ink, stamp the 'XOXO' sentiment randomly. Get close to but don't stamp over your panda! Stamps sentiment in black ink.

Step 4. Use a fine a fine tip marker to draw a loose frame around the edge of the card. I did not try to get this straight at all. The fact that the line is not perfect adds to the whimsical feel of the images! 



One of the best things about this card is that is is flat - perfect for mailing! 

Be sure to visit the Gerda Steiner shop and get this set before its gone...AGAIN!

Hello and welcome back, it's Karen here today.  I’ve got a thank you card to share today that combines the Garden Critters and Happy Bee-day stamp sets.



I used Copic markers to colour in all the poppies and the caterpillar, and then fussy cut them out. The extra leaves are from the HoneyBee Stamps "Lovely Layers Coneflower" die set and I cut them from green cardstock and added some Distress Oxide...
