Pink Flamingo Card


Hi all, I have been taking care of my husband and his fractured scapula so I haven't had much time to do much more than that and run errands! Today he was feeling much better and I had some time to sit and make two cards for my aunt who wanted them to give to friends. So, Aunt Sandy, here is one of them! I love my dies and wanted to use one of my new ones the Quickutz Pink Flamingo. I used a medium pink card stock and cut him out and used a lighter pink for his wing. Then I popped the wing up with dimensionals as well as the whole flamingo shape but is isn't showing well in the photo. The photo on the die package had his legs the usual yellow but looking at it I think that I should have used black to keep it all black and pink, what do you think?

Next I accented the flamingo with some Glossy Accents on his beak, pink glitter on the wing and tail and a black crystal for his eye. The base card is the same card stock as the flamingo and is layered with black and a light pink. The polka dots are black light weight card stock and are made with a 1/4" hole punch, I glued them down and then accented the dots with Glossy Accents until it was rounded on top.

I used my scalloped and standard circle Nestabilities to make the sentiment medallion and stamped the requested "Miss You" in black Stazon ink which is also popped up with dimensionals. Lastly I added a black satin bow above the medallion. I think I will go back and add something fun to the inside to finish it off, like more polka dots or just his legs hanging from the top inside of the card! lol! It was fun to make and I have lots more die just begging to be used.

Tomorrow I will post the second card that I made, it has a watercolor panel using a Me and Carrie Lou stamp in Jerri K's technique. Thanks for all the great encouraging comments on my Blue Vine quilled card, it is one of my favorites also! If you have quilled cards I would love to see them, just email me at the link on the side bar, or comment below with the link.

Until tomorrow's post,
