I'm back!


Hi everyone, I'm so sorry to have taken such a long break from crafting and blogging but I won't bore you with the details. It has been great going through all my stamps and crafty goodies again and I have started with a rather simple card.
I was asked to make a birthday card for a man who loves pandas with their favourite colours being red and black. I immediately went for my one and only panda stamp by Inkadinkado and an Artstamp which says "love" in Chinese. The trellis has been cut using a Cuttlebug die from the 2x6 floral and scrolling set and some gloss black card. I've used a small amount of gold mirri card for layering and some red card from my stash.
I was going to add a Chinese charm but decided not to as it made the card look more feminine.
Anyway, I hope you like it :)
