Anniversary Pandas

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I sent to my aunt and uncle to celebrate their wedding anniversary. I thought the ME Pandamonium pandas would be perfect for the card.

I started off by stamping the pandas using black ink to a piece of white cardstock. I then added a little bit of colour with Copics before fussy cutting out. I then took the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Round Roses stamp set, and stamped this on to black cardstock using Versamark ink. I added white embossing powder to this and then heat set. It was then cut out.
I took a piece of PTI Pure Poppy cardstock and cut this using a Nestabilities Classic Heart die. I then added a little ink blending around the edges for some depth. I used Festive Berries and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks. I took a white 4.75" card base and used the largest of the SSS Stitched Square dies to emboss the image on to the front. I have a video showing how to do this here.
I added the heart on to the card base with tape runner, along with the sentiment piece. I then added the pandas on top with foam tape.

I hope they like it! I really like how it turned out. Those pandas are just so cute! Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day.


  1. This is so beautifully done. I love the bright red heart behind the pandas. I bet they loved it! Xx

  2. So sweet! Love the red heart and the stitching detail.

  3. Cutie patootie...so the very lovely Laura Bassen says, but this card is so sweet with those adorable panda's, I go weak at the knees when I see a panda as they just so cute. Created with such elegance and I'm sure you Aunt and uncle will love it. Hugs x

  4. This is so sweet! When I first looked at it on IG, I thought the heart was cut out and you had blended behind, but no! Such a pretty red too. And I love the way you used your stitched rectangles to emboss the frame, I always forget to do this, and it's such a lovely touch on a card, without the bulk of more layers.
