Tickled Pink - Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Flamingo Card!

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! I recently signed back up for the Large Die of the month club with Spellbinders. For the month of May, the large die was this fantastic Flamingo die set called Grand Tropical Flamingos!. This die set comes with two flamingos, lots of tropical looking leaves and plants and flowers! 

 For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base, using a heavy weight black cardstock. Then I die cut a rectangle from a light blue cardstock and ran it through an old Anna Griffin embossing folder. 

I die cut all the pieces from the Flamingo die set using a heavy weight (110lb) smooth white cardstock. I colored all the images in using Copic markers. 

I positioned all my die cuts on to my card background, then I used a piece of press and seal plastic wrap to keep everything together so I could glue it in the exact position I wanted them. This is a great technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. She had a YouTube video showing how to do this and let me tell you! It's a great idea!!!

Once I had everything glued down, I added Stickles glitter gel to the petals of my flower and Glossy Accents to the beaks of my flamingos. 

I stamped the sentiment using Avery Elle's Tickled Pink stamp set. I stamped this using VersaMark ink on to black cardstock and then embossed it with white embossing powder. 

I just love these two flamingos!!! They are so pretty. They are made even better with all the foliage that comes with them! Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
