Let’s Make This

Let someone know that you care with these many, mini succulents.

1. Begin by gathering your supplies. You will need:

  • TOOLS:
    Playful Panda stamps
    Scattered Thoughts stamps
    Hybrid Ink: Hushed Darkness, Sparkling Apple and Backyard Grass
    Alcohol Ink: Lettuce
    White and kraft cardstock trimmed to 4″ x 5 1/4″
    Kraft cardstock trimmed to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and folded to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
    Cardstock, assorted colors
    Seed beads

Lightly trace a 3″ circle onto a piece of white cardstock. 

Stamp the bamboo design using Sparkling Apple and Backyard Grass Hybrid Inks.

Using a craft knife, carefully cut around the bamboo leaves and the circle. Hint: You can use the i-Mend Self Mending Deck as a cutting surface with a craft knife.

Choose your sentiment from the Scattered Thoughts stamp set and stamp below the round opening.

Stamp the panda with Hushed Darkness Hybrid Ink. Hand-cut and adhere behind the round opening on the card front.

Apply foam tape around the edges of the card front.

I wanted to use green shaker bits in my card but the closest color I had was yellow seed beads. I placed them in a plastic bag and added several drops of Alcohol Ink in Lettuce then shook the bag until the beads were well coated. 

Adhere an acetate window behind the panda and round opening. Add foam tape around the circle opening. Add the colored seed beads into the center area. 

Peel off the carrier sheet on the foam tape and adhere the trimmed piece of kraft cardstock to seal the shaker beads.

Adhere the front of the card onto the folded kraft card to complete.

Custom-colored shaker bits and heartfelt positive thoughts went into this Playful Panda card.
