Yes, ANOTHER panda card

Are you getting sick of them? I just keep finding cute pandas and make things with them. I found this one on my favorite go-to site, www.lovesvg.com.

So first, I cut it out with paper. Look at this mess. And then when I tried to glue it, I made an even bigger mess.

Here’s the card:

Nope, you don’t ┬áhave smudges on your monitor. It’s my glue mess on the card. I glued the eyes on backwards, I didn’t get the feet on right and it was a big mess.

You can see how it didn’t even glue down all the way, which I’m sure is user error…

So then, I happened to be on this site and I saw Nancy had done the cute Lucy card in vinyl. And the duh thought bubble appeared above my head and so I thought, this would be so much easier:

Oh look, all the pieces are in the right place and you don’t have to worry about them being upside down (ignore that I forgot to weed the feet when I took this picture).

And even though the vinyl is shiny and I’m getting a reflection in the picture, it is so much cleaner and nicer.

And it was super easy to transfer it on to the card stock in one big piece with transfer tape. A little tip: Don’t put the transfer tape all the way to the edge of the vinyl (like around the ears and feet) if you aren’t using clear transfer tape. It makes it much easier to line up. (I might have learned this the hard way).

Anyway. I’m sorry it was yet another panda… but this guy is pretty cute!

Machine(s):

Zing (paper) and KNK Maxx (vinyl)

Stuff you need:

Cardstock, glue sticks, vinyl, patience and sanity.

Until next time.

P.S. I noticed this was my 87th post!! Thanks for sticking with me. I really enjoy doing this. I am waiting for KNK to release a new great machine so I can upgrade, because it’s time. I’ve more than got my money’s worth from the two I have.
