Hello! I found this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and I thought it would be perfect for an Asian inspired card. Plus I have 4 boys - 4 panels - 4 pandas... so nice when things come together! Bonus for fitting inside a regular A2 envelope too!
The directions on the tutorial are very clear and easy to follow. For the top of my screen, I used the Impression Obsession Fancy Border Cutout and the bottom legs were done with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. To make my screens, I stamped an old bamboo image in Old Olive and then added a green die cut of Memory Box Bamboo Shoots. I didn't want the four screens identical but just by angling the stamp and repositioning the die cuts, you can create different scenes. Finally, I added some pandas from Mama Elephant Pandemonium holding Lawn Fawn's alphabet dies. I made them into balloons by drawing a line and adding shine with a white gel pen. The bubble speech in the last screen was handwritten and free hand cut.
It looks like a lot of work but it went really fast. I'm thinking this would make a great photo Christmas card...
