Panda Bear Hug

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made with Gerda Steiner's Panda in Love. I received this image for free because I participated in last month's challenge.  This is a progressive challenge, so if you play along in January, you will receive a new free image for February.


Stamps:  Digital image (Gerda Steiner's Panda in Love), clear stamp (cut and pieced to make this sentiment)
Patterned paper: Doodlebug Hello Summer
Die:  Gina Marie Designs Dot Studs Heart
Other:  Embossing folder (Docrafts Design Objectives Small Polka Hearts), heart punches, Ranger white embossing powder, Posca white paint marker

Here's how I made my card:
- Colour image with markers, add accents with white marker, and fussy-cut
- Die-cut patterned paper and adhere to heart-embossed white panel
- White heat-emboss sentiment on black scrap and trim into strip
- Adhere coloured image and sentiment strip with foam tape
- Adhere various punched hearts
- Adhere panel to top-folding A2 notecard
