poppystamps Whittle Panda Pickup Kit Step Card…

Hi everyone! How do birthdays look at your house?  Pretty much Panda-monium around here! lol  Look at this adorable shiny black pickup and friends though! So cute! I think I’m going to have to save this for my husband’s next birthday. 

I started with a 5 ½ in x 11 in piece of cardstock.  Then it’s just a simple cut and some score lines to create the fold.  Email me if you want me to post a how to… I used to make these a lot!

Here it is flat… send in a square envelope or the catalog size envelope that is rectangle.

A close up of the panda on the right step.

I die cut the pandas in white cardstock and colored them with a black copic marker. The details die cut into the images and you can stick a piece of scrap paper to help protect the white areas.  slick!

A Fineliner pen for their eyes. 

Panda on the left will hold something so I put in a heart and he’s holding a balloon. 

I had to cut the pickup out of Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and silver mirror cardstock for the wheels and bumpers. 

A piece of acetate I hand cut to place behind the window.  

I used the poppystamps Whittle Cloud Border for the clouds.

I used the poppystamps Word Balloons for the sentiment that comes with the Whittle Panda Pickup kit. 

This is all I’ve gotten made this week.  Sometimes I can be so slow!  Well, I was just playing and having fun! lol

I also pieced the pandas from white and black cardstock and that worked great too.  If you do that, use a fine sanding block or the Tombow sander that looks like an eraser to smooth your scissor cut areas.  It works great!

ok – I’ll stop talking now and get busy on my next card!  I was inspired by a flower card in the new Birch Press Design look book!

Have a great rest of the week and see you here again soon!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
