Today, I made another wedding card for my cousin. I really have no idea if he or his wife-to-be like flamingos, but I couldn’t resist using this sentiment.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by die cutting a stitched circle from water color paper. Then, I stamped the images on the circle with Versa Fine black ink. I used my Distress Inks as water colors when adding color to these images.
While the water coloring dried, I worked on the sentiment strip. I cut a thin strip form some black card stock. Using white embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment. I adhered the strip to the white card base and trimmed any excess off.
Before, I attached the stamped circle; I found a black circle to layer behind it. The black circle was left over from a different project and has clear embossed chevron strips on it. I adhered both circle to the card base and was done.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Flamingo Together, Critters from the Past, Mermaid for You, and Chevron Backdrops
Dies Used: Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles
Ink: Versa Fine
Distress Inks in Carved Pumpkin, Lucky Clover, Brushed Corduroy, Hickory Smoke, Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, and Walnut Stain.
Hope you enjoyed the card
