Now, let the fun begin!!

It's summer and the temperatures have been getting pretty high. So, for today's project, I made this super "sweet" panda eating an ice cream cone card that reads... "you're so SWEET". 

I just love his little aviator sunglasses ... and well, I love ice cream!!

Supplies Used


Too Cool (Pink and Main)
Hello Sweet (Pink and Main)

Sweet Dies (Pink and Main)

Mega Runner (Xyron) 
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Ranger)
140 lb Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Black Cardstock
Water Brush
Acrylic Block
Big Shot Machine (Sizzix)

I started by stamping my image with archival black ink onto mixed media paper. Then I colored the image with distress markers and blended out with a water brush.

I die cut two stitched rectangles from patterned paper. I used pink polka-dot from the Shades Of Spring Paper Pad and the black with turquoise hearts from the Spring Color Pop Paper Pad.

I used a 2-1/2" wide piece of chipboard laid it at a diagonal to trace around the sides. Then cut out the diagonal strip.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach the strip to the front of the remaining stitched rectangle.

I attached foam adhesive to the back of the panda to add dimension and applied him to my card front.

I die cut 2 sets (both word and shadow) of the word Sweet from the Sweet Dies set. One in White cardstock and one from the same polka-dot pink paper from earlier.

I placed the pink word into the white shadow and glued it onto the black diagonal strip.

Then used my Xyron Mega Runner and attached my card front onto an A2 sized card made from black cardstock.

Then stamped the words "you're so" from the Hello Sweet stamp set in black ink.

And here is my finished card...

I really hope you enjoyed this sweet card tutorial!
