MFT Festive Flamingos Card Kit Release

October 23, 2018
Hello friends!  The time has come to shop the latest Card Kit Release from My Favorite Things!  The Festive Flamingos Card Kit is filled with the cutest holiday flamingo stamp set, coordinating dies and beautiful pastel plaid patterned paper.
I’ve created a non-traditional Christmas Box Card to share with you today.  When it comes to Christmas, most people usually think of reds, greens and/or blues and lots of snow.  I wanted to go a different direction today and create a more tropical-themed Christmas card.  Where I live now, it never snows and it’s considered “cold” if the temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, lol. 
That being said, we usually decorate our house and palm trees with lights every year in celebration of the holiday season.  When I first saw these flamingos, I thought that they were perfect for this type of a card!  To start, I first created the box base.  The dimensions can be found HERE on a previous blog post of mine.
I stamped the flamingos with Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics (RV000, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09) and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I diecut some palm trees using the Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and blended the diecuts with some Distress Inks to add some shading.

Distress Inks Used:

  • Green Palm Fronds and Grass: Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters, Forest Moss
  • Tree Trunks and Sand:  Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs
  • Pink Sky: Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar
    I added a strand of Christmas lights using the lights from the BB Happy Pawlidays Stamp Set, some grass from the Grassy Edges Die-namics and sand using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics.  I layered the panels with some Tickled Pink Card Stock and Petite Plaid Paper Pack.  For my sentiment, I heat embossed it with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder on some Black Licorice Card Stock.

    The new kit is now available in the MFT Boutique!  If  you like this kit and want the bundle deal, act fast before they sell out!
    Don’t forget to stop by the MFT Blog for more Card Kit inspiration and a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!
    Lastly, make sure to check out Stacey Yacula’s first stamp set for MFT Stamps called Sweet Holiday Penguins which is also being released today! 
    Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don’t forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!
    Wishing you all lovely day and happy card making!
