Miss You card.

It's been some time since my last post. Here in Poland, September is a month when we prepare for winter so I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom making jams and compotes :)
But now everything is done and time to make cards :)

 I decided to make a 'Miss You' card for someone very important to me. We didn't see each other for a long time and I wanted to make something special. I had a different image in my head but it wasn't as easy to make as I thought.
I wanted to use these mega cute pandas from 'My Favorite Things', but I wanted to change the happy pandas to sad ones. Cuz honestly, when I think of it, missing someone is not a happy feeling at all. Especially if You miss someone a lot and time is passing. And that's what I wanted to show with this card. So here's how it turned out.

Details about the card:
I took some watercolor paper, chosing the more textured side, die cut 4 rectangles with MFT stitched rectangle die set, and stamped 1 panda from Happy Pandas stamp set on each piece. Masked pandas faces to make them sad, maybe even a bit too sad? Had mixed feelings about it. Stamped my bamboo from the same stamp set twice on each rectangle and added some leaves to show the season change. Not like real bamboo is like that but this is my bamboo so can be like that right? :D  Embossed everything with clear powder to make it resist my coloring later. I tried to color every rectangle to fit with the others, but still keeping colors of different seasons. Used distress inks to color everything. After it dried, added some black cardstock to make my picture pop a bit. My card is bigger than usual ones but I think it's ok like this.

At the end I added the message from the same stamp set and some red heart with glossy accent. I decided to put "Miss You" at the middle because it's very important for my card. Some small detalies with copics for cute pandas and card was done.

Well, this card doesn't look exactly how I wanted, or rather how I imagined it and I was close to dumping it like 30 times I think :D But after all I kept going till it was done.

 I thought I would parcitipate in My Favorite Things superstar challenge since I used only MFT supplies. I don't think it's a contest for newbies like me but I have nothing to lose :)

 Thank u for reading, and have a faboulus day <3
