Panda Love Card featuring Mama Elephant

Hello crafty friends! It's been a while since I've used my Mama Elephant stamps and I thought it'd be fun to make a Valentine's Day/love card with the super cute pandas from the "Pandamonium" set by Mama Elephant.

To begin my card, I die cut the background panel using the stitched rectangle die from the "Femme Frames" die set. I masked off the stitched edges and then stamped the chevron background stamps from the "Modern Backgrounds" set with "Winter" and "Dark Storm" pigment inks. I used my C4 Copic Marker to color the stitched edges. I then die cut the focal panel using a smaller stitched rectangle die. I stamped the two kissing pandas directly onto the panel and colored them in with Copic Markers. I then stamped the little heart above the pandas using "Bubblegum" pigment ink. Like the larger panel, I used my C4 Copic Marker to color the stitched edges. I then white heat embossed the sentiment onto the wavy banner from the "Tags A Lot" set. To finish the card, I used the scalloped border die to create my cardbase and then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I really love how this card came together and the CAS design. I don't have a need for too many Valentine's Day cards, so I prefer to stick to general love-themed cards I can use throughout the year or for our anniversary. I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks again for stopping by! ♥

  1. Love those kissing pandas! What copic color did you use for their cheeks?

    1. Thanks! I used R20 for their cheeks. For blush, my go-to colors are usually R20 and R01 :)

    2. Thanks, Yuki! I tried to achieve the blush look, but was using the wrong copic color for that.
