Accordian Fold Panda Love!

M.A.G challenge is back!! I thought I was going to have to miss the first week back but thanks to Michael's and their 9.99 sale I was so lucky to get the Pagoda cartridge. I unfortunately found out about the sale way later in the evening and that was the only cartridge they had left.
I decided to make a Valentines card for the challenge. I cut the panda out at 3 inches and used flock on the white part to fluff him up a bit by running it through my Xyron upside down. I hid the eyes with my gypsy so I could put some google eyes on him. The last picture down below shows where I faux stitched him AFTER I took the main pictures. The cupcake in his hands is from the EK Success border punch. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Hottie Patootie Pink and Poinsettia Red Gold to color the cupcakes, originally cut on white card stock.
All the other embellishments on the card are from The Paper Bliss that I got in a 9.99 value pack long ago. The heart/flourish paper on the main focus of the card is from K&Company. I think the print paper on the other side of the card is from The Paper Studio but I cannot remember for sure as it was from my stash.
The band of the card is the same K&Company paper with another Paper Bliss embellishment on it, I added a stick pin with beads for a little more bling that I made tonight as well. I am also entering this in Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge.  I hope you enjoy!


Card base 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2, & 8.
Mats cut at 1 1/4 (1 of them K&Company & 1 The Paper Studio), 2 1/4 (1 of them K&Company & 1 The Paper Studio), & 2 3/4 (K&Company).
Band cut at 8 x 2 1/2

  45. Hi Lisa,
    I just love your panda card! So cute! In answer to your comment on my blog, yes, my Imagine intimidates me too! LOL - I just need to buy a bunch of white cardstock and dig in I think. It's such an awesome machine that I'm terrified of messing it up! LOL - But once I found out that you can use the art cartridges with any of the old carts and apply the colors and patterns to those, I was so excited I actually jumped up and down and squealed! My husband thought I was nuts!
    TTYS,
