A Midnight (Madness)Panda.

Aw, yesterdays bear was so cute I just had to do another one! That's the beauty of downloads, you can do trillions and trillions of them, and bore everyone to tears!! Sorry about the bad pictures. It's been raining here all day and it's really dull indoors as we have those energy light bulbs that turn everything yellow and are quite honestly, rubbish! Back to the card...
This bear is a panda, (sez me, stating the 'bleedin' obvious!) Although he's brown and white not black and white! The other download in this set from The Tinker Shop has both bears together (I'll do that one next week, so we don't have too much of a good thing!) The background was printed straight on to  (Links not longer apply)
'Double sided Gloss/Matt A5 Greeting card 210 gram'

Thank you Mr Voice Over man, you may go home now..(he'll want paying next.) Personally I think these cards are perfect for printing a special picture on, or a designed pattern or a Christmas photo you want to send to family. Adding another bit of paper on top, well, you really don't want to do that, because obviously you want to see the gloss shine of the card, but saying that, if I hadn't told you, you'd think this was just an ordinary card that I'd printed on, inside and out, wouldn't you?! Yes. (Talk to yourself Lyn, they're all watching telly.)
I made this card especially for the Midnight Madness bunch over on Midnight Madness...MMSC#17. There's a sketch to follow ~ and some Candy up for grabs and joining in with the challenges gets you extra points! I printed on both sides of my paper so that when I curled the edges you'd see patten rather than white paper. I decoupaged the Panda and fixed him on with 3D foam pads. The insert was done thus...Pictures speak so much louder than words..(Except when the Voice Over Man talks...but then of course, he's just in my head.) Oh alright, so I 'spoes I'd better tell you! What happened was...(I sounded like Jeffro then!) I mean, what I did was...I punched out a scalloped circle, stuck it onto the paper, printed the paper, peeled off the circle to leave a scalloped white bit so I can write in it later, 'best wishes love Lyn'. Clever huh? And saved a wee bit o' time sticking in squares and flowers.
