Hello friends, it's time for the May edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month I absolutely fell in love with sassy flamingos from Let's Flamingle. There were so many great images and sentiments, that I couldn't create just one card. I ended up making four.
I colored all four flamingos in with Copics and die cut them with the matching Let's Flamingle Die-namics. Then I die cut four focal panels with the outside frame of the Scallop Cross-Stitch Tag and sponged on a gradient of Distress inks from the bottom left corner.
When that was dry, I gold heat embossed a few images from Pressed Flowers to add a little background and depth to my scene. I found some black two-toned ribbon with a gold thread in the center and tied that onto each tag.
For my card base, I used Razzle Berry Cardstock scored and folded to a standard-sized card. Over that, I layered a piece of Pink Lemonade trimmed down with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2. Then I popped my focal panel up with foam tape.
To finish off the cards, I gold heat embossed my sentiments on Black Licorice cardstock, and added a sprinkle of 6mm Metallic Gold Sequins to pull all my gold accents together.
