A Flirty Flamingo

May 18, 2017

Although that’s not the colour I used I love the title anyway.   I saw an old challenge on the Global Design Project challenge and decided to use the layout to create this card.  I started by cutting a piece of Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series paper (retired) on an angle and layering it onto Basic Black card.  The panel is attached to Whisper White card and I added two rows of Pop of Pink Washi Tape across the top of the designer series paper.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the flamingo from the Pop of Paradise stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink.  I stamped the leaves all around the flamingo using Old Olive ink.  Stamping several times without re-inking.  I attached the stamped card to Basic Black card and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out using the 1″ circle punch.  The greeting is attached to a 1-1/4″ Melon Mambo circle and then a 1-3/8″ circle of Basic Black before being attached to the card front.  I did use half a dimensional under the right hand side of the greeting circle.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the leaf image across the bottom of Whisper White card.  Once more stamping several times without re-inking.

This is probably not the kind of card I would usually make, but sometimes we need to push ourselves outside our crafting boundaries.   In any case, I really love the end result.  I think it is a fun and happy card, perfect for someone’s birthday, don’t you think?

Bye for now,

    Gorgeous, especially how you have made the flamingo the centre of attention.
