Wishing You The Beary Best

I have some really great news. I have joined the Design Team at 613 Avenue Create. This is my first week and I'm really excited to be working with such wonderful, creative ladies. I will be on Team B. This week's challenge is Grandparent's Day or make something for a grandchild/child. Our sponsors this week are The Paper Shelter and Shelly's Images.


I chose to make a card for a child and I'm using the PRE-COLORED image called "The Most Adorable Panda" from The Paper Shelter. This card was so much fun to make. I started out by cutting 4 copies of this bamboo border on my Sihouette Cameo and making a frame from it. This was a little time consuming because each one of the "ties" was separate and I had to glue them all onto the frame. I distressed the frame to give it more depth. I then cut the bamboo stalks and leaves on my Silhouette Cameo. This was also very time consuming because each and every piece was separate and they had to be put together like a puzzle and glued in place. I then printed the panda image and hand-cut it. I then stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up! and distressed it using creamy caramel ink and mounted it on old olive card stock. The frame, panda and sentiment are all popped up using pop dots.

I really hope you will join us at  613 Avenue Create's blog and enter your projects into the challenges there!
