Well…I’m back to reality from my crafty retreat. Bummer. But you can all still pretend I’m on vacation since I’ll be posting more of what I finished there. I was able to work three of my goals into this card: Using the flair buttons I got from…(who knows where), using papers from some of my Simon Says Stamp card kits that I love, but that have been piling up, and using the pieces of a Halloween themed kit I bought from a friend.
First up, the sketch. This one is from Retro Sketches.
Square cards are CRAZY hard for me…so I modified it to a good ol’ A2. But everything else is still there.
Next, add a panda. I mean, you should ALWAYS add a panda. And Anything Goes when the panda’s in da house! 🙂
My Pandamonium set from Mama Elephant is probably the most used stamp set I own. Thanks Makalah! So here’s the result:
I used the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit papers from April 2014. Simon Says “Make Something!” 🙂 I don’t usually use bright primary colors, but this seemed like a good opportunity. Added benefit? The heart flair button matches! Also, the orange polka dot button and the “button” brads from the Halloween kit were able to make an appearance! I just bought that arrow Close to my Heart washi tape from my friend at the retreat. Since I used it, I’m now completely justified in buying it. I imagine he’s bursting in the door of the party saying “Hi!” and everyone turns, smiles and yells “Panda’s here!!!” 🙂
