See How to Make a Happy Birthday Panda Card with Rinea Foil

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.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1.5 hours

Directions


Step 1

Stamp the pandas on white cardstock using clear VersaMark ink. Heat emboss the images using black Mboss embossing powder.


Step 2

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.


Step 4

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.


Step 5

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.

Step 1

Place a piece of white cardstock in a stamping aid and place the stamp over the cardstock in the desired position. Close the lid of the stamping aid to affix the stamp to the lid. Pounce VersaFine Nocturne ink over the stamp; close the lid to stamp the image onto the cardstock. Repeat this step if necessary to get a good impression. Leave the stamp affixed to the stamping aid.


Step 2

Use an Exacto knife to cut away several scales from the image.


Step 3

Use sponge daubers to apply Verdant, Paradise and Fantasia inks to the cardstock. Blend the inks where they meet.


Step 4

Use a white gel pen to color in the dots on the scales.


Step 5

Swipe the piece of cardstock with a Stamping Buddy or other anti-static tool. Place the piece of cardstock back into the stamping aid; apply VersaMark ink to the rubber stamp and close the lid to stamp the image over the first.


Step 6

Sprinkle the image with Mboss Sparkle Embossing Powder, shake off excess and return to the pouch. Use a heat tool to melt the embossing powder.


Step 7

Trim several colors of Rinea Foiled Paper to fit the openings in the scale pattern.
