Lawn Fawn: Christmas Panda Card

Lawn Fawn Panda Party Christmas Dreams
Christmas Panda Card
Hi there!  It's amazing that Christmas Eve is only nine days away.  I was getting worried that I'd never finish a simpler version of the card I originally created for my great aunt.  It took me about three days of messing around to finally able to produce this cute and warm Christmas Panda card.

It all started with a scarf from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day (2014) and free birthday Party Panda (2018) stamp. It took a few hours to come up with the layout for the original version (see below) which looked busy with trees and white snow.

Distress inks were blended to create a night background and a glowing star on top of tree.  Clear embossed snow was definitely less visually distracting.  Then I used white gel pen for tiny dots of snow.  The blue foreground was a mix of distress ink and Copic marker.  The panda and tree were the last things I colored using Copic markers.

For fun, I added a bit of sparkle on the bear and tree using Wink of Stella.
