Thank you panda

Hi, I'm back again! I've been determined to figure out how to dry emboss so when I went to Taj Clubhouse last week, I bought a couple of stencils. It was much easier for me to use a stylus and a light box than running it through the big shot machine. I also took out my daylight lamp and it really helped me to see better so I could cut around the embossed pieces. 
Here's a gatefold card that I ended up making using the panda bear that I embossed.
 The sentiment on the inside of the card is from Dandelion Designs.
Here's a close up of the panda bear. My cutting is still a little choppy but I think as I practice more, it will get better.
I haven't used a camera to take photos in such a long time. I'm so amazed at how well the camera on my iPhone takes nice photos.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment! It's nice to know that people still visit my blog.
Have a great weekend!!!

Oh Cheryl, that is a great TAJ embossed image. I am a long time fan of Tiki's work. You really did a fantastic job of using the panda on a gate card. I love the colors and everything you added. It gives me a great idea for a B-day card I need to work on. Your phone sure does take great photos, better than my camera (maybe it's the photographer). Have a splendid weekend!

Super adorable card! That reminds me that I need to find my Taj stencils and use them too!

Oh this is adorable Cheryl!! I bought a bunch of Taj's stencils years ago after I saw all the cute projects you can make with them. Too bad it was so much harder for me to use, but I do love how cute they are. You did a wonderful job with the trimming. Love this adorable card... Maybe I'll unpack those stencils, lightbox and stylus and give it another go, now I just have to figure out where they are!! hahaha
