~Whisper White at 3-5/8″ x 5-1/2″.
~Basic Black at 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.
~Real Red at 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Stamp on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink:
~Party Panda with envelope
~Sentiment:  Sending Heartfelt Thoughts”
Die Cut & Punch:
~Use the Stitched Shapes Square to die cut out the Party Panda.
~Punch out the sentiment. if desired, draw stitch lines with the Fine Tip of your Real Red Marker.
Real Red Scallop Rectangle
~Put the 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Real Red on your Big Shot platform with the Thin Die Adapter and bottom cutting plate.  (Multipurpose Platform=all tabs closed.)
~Lay the large Scallop Square Framelit at the top of the cardstock.
~Place your top cutting plate so it covers about 1/8″ of Real Red cardstock shows above the bottom of the Framelit.  Run through your Big Shot.  Your Real Red will be partially die cut.
~Turn your Framelit upside-down and lay your Scallops so 2-3 Scallops are in the Framelit and the rest of the Framelit is on uncut cardstock.  Lay on your Big Shot Platform with the Framelit cutting side up.  Run through your Big Shot with the top cutting plate only covering the part of the Framelit that still needs to be cut.  DO NOT cover the center part of your cardstock and Framelit with the cutting plate or you will end up with a square instead of a rectangle.  I guess I will make a video on this for April…..
2.  Assemble your card:
~Layer the Whisper White, Basic Black, and Scallop Rectangle together with SNAIL.
~Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Panda and sentiments.
~Lay out where you want them then attach.
Your card is finished!

2.  Cut your Perfect Plum card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  Glue to your card base.
3.  Stamp all three pandas on Whisper White cardstock leaving plenty of room to punch them out with the Starburst Punch.  You might need to stamp each image more than once, so use the Stamp-a-ma-jig so you can get the perfect stamped images.  Punch out each panda separately with the Starburst Punch.  Stamp the confetti in Perfect Plum ink as desired around the pandas.
4.  Stamp Happy Birthday twice in either Perfect Plum or Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out both sentiments with the Classic Label Punch.  Put three Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of each Classic Label.

6.  Punch a Balloon out of Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  Color it with the Rich Razzleberry Blends Markers.  I did the Dark against the left side, the Light over the rest, and made the “shine” by removing the color with the Color Lifter.
7.  Lay out your circles, balloon, and Happy Birthdays in the desired positions.  Attach the Circles and Happy Birthdays with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the Balloon.
8.  Tie a bow from the Baker’s Twine.  Attach it to the bottom of the balloon with either a Glue Dot or a small dot of Tombow Glue.

Pandas in the Bamboo

Use the Party Pandas Level 1 Sale-a-bration stamp set to make this card.  It uses few supplies and is FUN to make.  Wish I was up there playing in the trees!
Panda in the Bamboo CardSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Party Pandas  Wood Mount #147218, Clear Mount #147221   EARN FREE with $50 purchase!
  Memento Black
Real Red Marker or Marker color of your choice
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Old Olive
Color Theory 6×6 Designer Series Paper Stack #144193
Big Shot:  Everyday Jars Framelits #141490 or Leaves of your choice
Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig #101049  OR Stamparatus
  Tombow Glue

1.  Cut your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Stamp your Pandas on Whisper White cardstock with Black ink.  Cut them out.
~Wood Mounted:  Use with the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get each Panda a solid black color.
~Clear Mount:  Place your 3 pandas on either a large clear block and stamp with the Stamp-a-ma-jig or on a Stamparatus clear panel as you will need to stamp each one twice to get the solid black color. (At least I did.)
3.  Cut 3-5 strips of the Old Olive Color Theory paper from 1/8″ to 3/8″ wide.  These will be your Bamboo stalks.  The 3/8″ will just fit between the bear paws holding the envelope.
4.  Cut up to 12 of the long stem leaves from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  I used 12 and trimmed off the long stems so the leaves would just fit under the Bamboo Stalks.  You can trim the two branches apart if desired.  In hindsight, I probably used too many leaves.  This is a much busier card than I usually make.
5.  Lay your Pandas, Bamboo Stalks, and Leaves on the card front.  Glue down from left to right, back to front.  This will be messy.  Work on your Silicone Craft Sheet to prevent Glue getting on everything.  Trim off the excess Bamboo Stalks and leaves around your card.
Your Card is finished!
