This panda stamp set is one of my favorites, and I’ve used it on many card projects. Embossed Rinea foil took these cute images on a completely new level; the shimmering patterned background is truly eye-catching and made the adorable party pandas pop! This card design is simple to make, and the Rinea foil is easy to emboss. If you don’t have a die-cutting machine and embossing folders you can easily emboss and pattern the foil with a stylus.
Time: 1.5 hours
Stamp the pandas on white cardstock using clear VersaMark ink. Heat emboss the images using black Mboss embossing powder.
Using the craft mat as palette color the embossed pandas with black, grey and red Memento inks. Wipe the ink pads on the craft mat and pick up the colors with a water brush. Once dry add highlights with a white color pencil. Cut out the images.
Place a sheet of red Rinea foil in an embossing folder. Run through the die-cutting machine to create an embossed pattern. Doesn’t the embossed sheet look amazing! Trim the foil to a size slightly smaller than your card front.
Trim a white panel to a size that is ¼” smaller than your card base on all edges. Die-cut two circles on the card front. Layer the card front panel on the embossed foil and mat onto a piece of dark red cardstock. Attach the layered card front to the card base using double-sided tape. Stamp the sentiment on the card front. Glue pandas on the die-cut circles.
