Paul the Panda

Hi all! My card today is for The Stamp Fairy challenge which is a sketch. My daughter is all into panda's right now, so I've been searching blogland trying to find some. She is off to her first year of college in the fall so I am making some cards up ahead to send her while she's there. This is Panda Paul from The Stamp Fairy. There is such a nice set of this little guy. Makes me wish I had one of the filmstrip dies because this guy would be perfect for that.

 The inside is where my card gets interesting. That strip of Pandas you see... that is actually a magnetic bookmark. I cut a slit in the card at the top so that I could slide it into place.

 When you take it off, the sentiment is revealed. The bookmark folds over the page and is held together with a magnet at the bottom. This is really handy when you're reading because you can just clip it to another page until you are finished. No dropping it each time you turn the page (well, maybe that's just me, lol).  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs Get Well Soon Sentiments. I like this set because some of the sentiments are useful for other situations.

Stamps: The Stamp Fairy Panda Paul, Raindrop Echo Designs Get Well Soon Sentiments
Paper: Fancy Pants It's the Little Things
ProMarkers: Ice Grey 3, 4, 5, Sandstone, Marsh Green
Accessories: Pearl Brads from the Eyelet Outlet, Spellbinders Dahlia Die, Black Seam Binding, Baker's Luster Twine in Simply Sage, Green Mini Buttons
