Hello crafty friends! I’m sharing a card today featuring the Festive Flamingos Card Kit from My Favorite Things. The pastel color palette on this kit is just gorgeous. It frees you to make some non-traditional Christmas cards or to use it for something else altogether.
For my card today, I used two of the sweet flamingos from this set and placed them onto a snowy background where they can be seen ice skating. I love the ice skates and the scarves on these two (usually tropical) birds, lol. I stamped my flamingos onto some Smooth White Card Stock, colored with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Copic Colors Used:
- Pink: RV000, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09
- Ice & Ice Skates: 0, C00, C0, C1, C2, C4
- Blue Scarf: B000, B0, B01, B02, B06
For my background, I blended some MFT Premium Dye Inks (Tickled Pink, Wild Wisteria and Grapesicle) with my Clarity Stencil Brushes onto a a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored in the ice with some Cool Grey (colors listed above) Copic Sketch Markers.
I diecut this panel using one of the rectangle dies from the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 1 and then stamped my sentiment at the bottom with Black Ink. I added some snow with a White Gel Pen and then adhered my flamingos with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.
Lastly, I mounted this to a vertical A2 Card Base which I had added some of the beautiful Pastel Plaid Patterned Paper that comes with this kit.
This kit and all new product links will be available tomorrow, October 23rd @ 10 AM EDT in limited bundle quantities. If you don’t want the entire kit, the items will also be available separately at their regular prices.
