Happy Birthday Panda Card
Background Basics—The background starts with a Lemon Lime Twist Tutti Frutti Note Card and some Bubbles & Fizz DSP. I adhered a 4" x 2" piece of the stars pattern on the bottom of the card and a 4" x 1" striped pattern above it.
Excellent Envelopes—Each Tutti Frutti Note Card comes with a coordinating envelope. The outside flap matches the card pattern and the inside is lined with a contrasting pattern that I've shown with the cards.
Birthday Panda—I stamped the balloon panda onto a Whisper White 2-5/8" wide Layering Ovals die-cut. I like to use the Archival Black ink on solid images like this to get a crisp, true black image. I stamped the balloon part of the image only on the back of a 1" square piece of Bermuda Bay Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (now a Sale-a-Bration selection!), cut it out with Paper Snips, then popped it up over the original balloon. I adhered the oval to the card front with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Party Panda sentiment in Archival Black onto Whisper White scrap, then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I cut a Bermuda Bay Classic Label shape in half to create the side borders of the sentiment, then popped it up with more Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I attached a Whisper White Baker's Twine bow to the balloon string and added a couple of Rhinestone Jewels.
Party Pandas Hi Card
Background Basics—I adhered a 1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to the Pool Party Tutti Frutti note card with Tear & Tape Adhesive. I also attached half a Delicate Doily to the background.
Balloon Panda—I stamped the balloon panda image in Archival Black Ink onto a 2" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White, then colored in the balloon with the Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker. It's mounted onto a 2-1/4" x 4" Pool Party cardstock layer, then popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—The greeting is stamped in Archival Black onto Pool Party scrap, punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch and adhered with SNAIL. I attached a Pool Party Baker's Twine bow with a Glue Dot, then finished up with some White Perfect Accents in the upper right corner.
Party Pandas Bubbles Birthday Card
Background Basics—The Calypso Coral Tutti Frutti card is decorated with a 5-1/2" x 2" strip of Bubbles & Fizz DSP and a 5-1/2" x 1/2" strip of Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black onto a 2" x 1/2" Whisper White strip, trimmed the end and adhered to the background with SNAIL. I added some sparkly Rhinestones at the end of the banner.
Party Hat Panda—The panda with the party hat was stamped in Archival Black Ink onto a Whisper White 2-3/8" diameter circle die-cut from the Layering Circles Framelits. I colored the hat in with a Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write Marker. It's mounted onto a Calypso Coral 2-5/8" circle die-cut, then popped up with Dimensionals.
Party Pandas Love You Card
Background Basics—The Daffodil Delight Tutti Frutti note card is decorated with a 4-1/4" x 2" strip of the hearts Bubbles & Fizz DSP, along with a 4-1/4" x 3/4" strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Love Panda—The panda with the love letter was stamped in Archival Black onto a 2-3/8" Whisper White circle die-cut, then layered onto a Calypso Coral scalloped circle die-cut, also from the Layering Circles Framelits. It's colored with a Calypso Coral maker, then popped up.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the sentiment onto Calypso Coral scrap and die-cut it with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. It's attached with a Dimensional. I finished up with three White Perfect Accents across the top.
