Panda Flop Card

Panda Flop Card

Hi All!

I used My Favorite Things’ Flop Card die for today’s card. It sounds kind of strange, doesn’t it? It’s like “flip card” was taken, so they went with “flop card”, lol. I also used the die on this card.

I used Happy Pandas again. I’ve used this set many times – I think about 7! If you haven’t used the Advanced Search yet, check it out! Type “Happy Pandas” and the cards will come up.
I just found out that Happy Pandas has been discontinued by MFT. Why would they do that?! Ugh.

Here is the inside of the card:

    I know I say this a lot of the time but this card is absolutely adorable. I really love that panda stamp set soooo much! And the flop card die is pretty nifty too. Thanks as always for another great video.

    I always love to see this adorable stamp set on your cards Darlene, they are absolutely the cutest little pandas around.
    The die is so cool, I added it to my very looooong wish list.
    Thank you for another fun and fabulous video.

    Cool flop (or flip!) card, Darlene! I think it would also be neat to glue a real (small) pompom to the top of the party hat. Might need a hot glue gun, or at least a thick tacky glue to do that, though. I’ve also done it by running a small stitch with a needle & sewing thread through the back of the pompom and the cardstock I’m gluing it to, just for reinforcement. Something to consider! Love the two different green inks you used for the leaves & bamboo. Really helps give it some depth. I am glad you have a video up today! I’m in the middle of an art show that I help coordinate, which begins tomorrow. 😲 So I’m in high-stress mode trying to make sure all the little last-minute things I have to do get done! 😵 Taking a break right now, though, since just about everything is ready for tomorrow (at least on my end!). Thanks for sharing your so-cute card! 😺 ~ Andrea

    Great card! I have these stamp sets, I also use the bear ware with other stamps, great minds think alike! TFS!

    I am so glad that you clued me in on that Panda set quite some time ago. I use it all the time for quick cards because the Pandas don’t tale much time to color. This card is adorable.

    I finally broke down and bought this set a while back and the matching dies (I am not a good fussy cutter!) and I am glad I did! I have made all of your panda cards so will definitely try this one. Could you do it without the flop die? Just wondering how you would place the circle die? Probably open the card base and move your plates so they don’t cut past the fold? Thanks so another great idea! love these little guys! 😎

    Cute card. I have both the stamp set and flop die (have never used the die) so here is my opportunity. Thanks Darlene.

    It’s such a feel good card, who doesn’t love a Panda? Unfortunately I don’t have this set but I think you could use other little animals in the same way. I imagine a branch and the owl showing through the top area. I think you may have done something like that years ago now I think of it. I look so forward to your cards Darlene, Thankyou
