Simply Christmas #3

Hi my crafting friends, hope you are all having a good week so far.

Today's card is a little bit of a mish mash of cartridges.

Don't ask where the idea came from - it just seemed to come together.

Now, we all love pandas, right?  Well I do, and what better than to get a cuddly one for Christmas in your stocking.

For now, this is as close as your going to get.

Well, where do I start? The card base is a standard 6.5" by 5".

The panda is from the Pagoda cartridge (page 36) cut at 3".  I cut him in half, so that he would sit in the stocking.  I also used little pearl dots for his eyes.

For his arms, I actually used the easter egg from the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 57) cut at 0.75".

The stocking is also from the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 67) this was made fatter and measures approximately 4" high by 3.25".  The heel and toe were embossed with the Cuttlebug and the Snow flakes folder.

His little hat is from the Winter Frolic cartridge, its actually part of the Santa on page 53.  I used the Santa and shift, and Santa and layer - but used hide contour and just cut the hat.  It is cut at 1.25".

I added some sparkly white wool to his hat and the top of the stocking, and a miniature pom pom for the top of his hat.

Finally, the sentiment is also from the Winter Frolic cartridge (page 58, Phrase and Phrase shadow) cut at 1.5".  I lost the little dot for the i, as I wasn't paying attention, so added an itsy bitsy gem.

Hope you like my cute little panda.
