To create this card I cut a card base on Whisper White Card Stock measuring 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of striped Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the card stock with my Snail Adhesive.
Next, I used a two-step stamp process to create the flamingo. I stamped her body and head in black and then I used the larger stamp (the one with her legs),and my black Stampin’ Write Marker to color her legs and lightly stamped her upper body using the Powder Pink Stamp Pad.
Next, I created the leaves and flowers using Granny Apple Green and Power Pink and the Tropical Chic Framelits to cut-out the images. I also created the 3 white background leaves on plain Whisper White Card Stock.
The greeting was stamped using the Tuxedo Black Stamp Pad. Lastly, I added a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the flowers and two pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls embellishments.
It was actually a pretty quick card to make and I think the flamingo is just adorable! Have a great day and until next time,
