Festive Friday: Panda Party

Mar 9, 2018 | Cards With No Sentiment | 0 comments

Let’s get FESTIVE! Did you know that March 16th is National Panda Day?

We warned you that we’d be featuring some not-so-traditional festivities over at Festive Friday. Here’s the first one!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other week! #cardchallenge #festive #panda #blackandwhite

Do we really expect you to send a card to someone for National Panda Day? Of course not! (Though it would be funny to send one to your local zoo, or maybe to a friend who really, really loves these cuddly creatures!)

BUT, we do think that a lot of inspiration can be taken from the idea of “panda”. Do you have the cutest panda stamp? How about some designer paper? Do you see a pattern or a design that makes you think of pandas? How about a scrapbook page of that time you went to the zoo?

See – It’s easy to get inspired by this challenge’s festivity. Of course, you could just go for Black & White and totally ignore the panda part. Either way, we’re ok with that. That’s the beauty of an “and/or” challenge!

We’d love to have you play along with us, so don’t forget to create something and link up with us.

This time, I decided to use the “and” option, focusing on adding this adorable panda to the design, along with a Black & White color palette.

The only additional color is the teeny tiny heart on the envelope – colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker (use the pen end, not the brush end!), and some hints of Smoky Slate from my Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend to give the panda some shading. Those markers are just perfect for adding that kind of dimension, depth and detail to stamped images.
