Glamour Days Flamingo Card with Dana Tatar
Hi! Dana here today sharing a card highlighting one of the new dies from Couture Creations. I absolutely love this Flamingo Die from the Glamour Days Intricutz Die Collection! I'm so ready for Spring and had a lot of fun putting this tropical card together.
I added some texture with a burlap frame that I cut using the largest Cameo Nesting Die. I cut a smaller piece of cardstock with the largest Oval Nesting Die and lined the edge with a pearl pen.
I wanted to make my flamingo look as lifelike as possible, so I used the Flamingo Die to cut two flamingos from patterned paper, one pink and the other orange. I cut the orange legs and beak from one die-cut and layered them on top of the pink flamingo die-cut. I blurred the seams with pink and orange ink for a smooth finish. I added a Blue Iceberg Gemstone for the flamingo's eye.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are finding a way to stay warm!
