Cycling Panda Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #112 Mid Inspiration)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for an ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #112 - Anything Goes w/optional twist: Love and Marriage.

We have two sponsors for this challenge: Bugaboo Stamps and MMedel Illustrations, so there will be double prizes! :o)


I went with Anything Goes theme without optional twist and made this CAS (clean and simple), Cycling Panda Card. :o)

I made this card for my friend, passionate photographer and cyclist. Although his birthday is in July, I made it now. I make many birthday cards through the year, but I'm always in lack of them. It's better to be prepared in advance and not to stress two days before someone's birthday, right. :o)

How I made the card... 

To make this card I was inspired with a current challenge theme over at The Male Room: Sport / Winter Olympics. I went with cycling as a sport theme.

I used a super cute Kitty Bee Designs 'Trike Panda' digital image. :o)

I printed the panda on a white cardstock paper. I colored it with various colored pencils and fine liners. Then I fussy cut the panda and traced edges with a black marker.

Next up was a sentiment. I used alphabet stickers to create the sentiment. I glued letters on a white cardstock paper panel, glued some foam tape on the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base.

I glued some foam on the panda also and placed it above the sentiment, as the sentiment was road and panda was cycling on it. :o)

To make card sturdier, as I put quite an amount of foam on the card, I glued another white cardstock paper panel inside the card.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights and horn sound trace, as I cut it off from the original image. :o)

Dimensions: 105 mm x 136 m(4 1/8" x 5 3/8")
