Birthday Panda

Stencils can be so much fun. You can use any medium that you like. I used distress ink on my background for this card.

   Party Panda

   Basic Black A-2
   Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 (2)

   peacock feathers distress ink
   Archival Basic Black

   Basic Pattern Decorative Masks, Red Ribbon 16", Adhesive

I used Painter's Tape to keep my stencil and card stock in place. I then took the peacock feathers distress ink pad and rubbed it on my stencil/mask in a zig zag pattern. 

I used a paper towel to clean the stencil and pick up some of the ink. This also caused the lighter colored circles on the background. 

Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp my Panda and sentiment several times. I then tied my red ribbon around the card.

Lastly, I attached it to my Basic Black card base. The second panel of Whisper White is for the inside of the card.

Thank you so much for taking a peek and interest in my card. I appreciate your time and comments. 



  1. Sally, the little Panda bear is so cute and your card is fun.

    1. Thank you, Jeanette. You are very kind to say so. I appreciate your time and enjoy reading your thoughts.

  2. Cute card...I don't have any stencils...might have to get a couple

    1. KER you cannot go wrong with stencils or masks. They really are quite fun and come in handy for so many techniques. I love using shaving cream with mine!

  3. I love working with stencils; you created a lovely background with this one. I was reading the other comment you made about shaving cream. That is also one of my favorites, especially the one where you put the color in it and then let it foam up for a couple of hours. It makes great backgrounds. Lovely card. Thanks for the inspiration and for stopping by my blog, too. :)

    1. Thank you Sharon. I need to try the technique where you leave the shaving cream for a few hours. It looks like a whole lot of fun! TFS and reminding me!
