Happy Birthday Panda
I got some new Unity stamps in the mail over weekend. I get so excited when I see that brown envelope arrive at my house, I am like a kid at Christmas ha! One of my new stamp sets are these little pandas how cute are they?? They came just in time as I needed to make my nephew a birthday card. He loves animals so this Plenty of Pandas stamp set was perfect for his card.
This is such a simple and easy card to make. I just stamped the panda and the sentiment from the Sweet Elle stamp set in Versafine black onyx ink. Then I used a balloon stamp I have from Fiskars called Birthday Bash. This set comes with numbers so I could put his age in the balloon. I painted the balloon in light blue with my water colour paints. Next I strung a little row of sequin stars along the top with silver floss. It looked a little too clean for me so I threw some paint splatters on the card.
I absolutely love the way it turned out. I hope he likes his card. He asked to go the zoo for his birthday so he will see real life pandas when he visits. They actually have a panda web cam there here is the link if you want to have a look at some real life pandas :) Edinburgh Zoo Panda Cam.
