So happy we're friends !

 



Hello everyone !

Lounon here and I am super excited to share with you my first card as Guest Designer. I used the adorable Lovely Pandas 4×6 Clear Stamp Set.


First, I folded in two a 4 1/4″ x 11 1/2″ (11 cm x 28 cm) marker friendly piece of white cardstock to make a 5 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ (11 cm x 14 cm) card base. I drew a line with my pencil at 2″ (5 cm) from the bottom. I used this line to place and stamp the cute panda three times. I stamped the one on the left with my LDRS Coffee Bean hybrid ink, the one in the middle with my LDRS Allow Hybrid ink and the one on the right with my LDRS Raven hybrid ink.


After that, I colored the wood fence and our three cuties with my Illustrators.


Then, I fussy cut the top part of the card.


I cut a rectangle into my Polkadoodles In love with Autumn pattern paper and I glued it inside the card. I matted and layered it with a bigger brown cardstock rectangle.

Then, in order to have a cleaner finish I stamped and fussy cut the pandas three times into brown cardstock and cut a rectangle in it . I glued them inside the flap.




Finally, I stamped my sentiment from the set into my white cardstock and I cut it with a LDRS frame die from the Elegant Stitched Frames Slimline Dies set. I colored it with my markers. I cut a piece of twine and I glued it behind. I put foams behind my sign and glued it on my card.


Et voilà !



May the craft be with you !
