I had a request from a friend for a birthday card for her son with a panda on it. I found this “panda chain” from Erin Doran in Silhouette Studio. I cut a few out and had a lot of fun sticking them together. I needed some bamboo for them to hang in and found some old paint chip cards that I sliced up and used as bamboo. Handpainted some card aqua and die cut some sprigs of leaves using Kaisercrafts Mini Foliage decorative die. Some twine, a few drops of Heidi Swapp Colorshine and a little sentiment. Hand drawn black ticking around the edge of the white card stock and I was done.
I had cut out a few of the panda chains, but the first ones I cut were too big to fit the whole chain of 3 on a card. I cut one off to make the next card. Kaisercrafts Hanami Garden , Mokuren paper. Some hand painted watercolour paper using Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolours and the Hello stamp from Kaisercrafts Wilflowers collection. (this is my fav stamp at the moment, I use it on EVERYTHING!) Red ribbon to finish. I love the contrast on this one.
