OUTSTANDING FLAMINGO

 Do you know of anyone who is outstanding and deserves some sort of recognition? Well, here's the card for that someone!


I used a bit of symbolism in planning this card. 

First of all, I stamped the flamingos as close as I could across a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of white cardstock using FLIRTY FLAMINGO. Notice they are all crammed together, going in the same direction. In essence, following the crowd. 

Then HERE comes the outstnanding one. In a HOT PINK (Marvelous Magenta) traveling in the oppostite direction. The diecut flamingo has more definition, what with the wing and just being more prominent overall.


To make our outstanding one even more outstanding, I mounted him/her onto a black curlicue frame cut with one of the Ornate dies. Then popped up with Dimensionals to face the crowd.


Since I needed to show enough of the crowd in the background for this card to work, I didn't want to cover too much of it up. So the final touch -- and "punchline" -- is the small sentiment mounted onto a thin flagged piece of black cardstock.

The Friendly Flamingo Bundle on page 43 of the current Mini Catalog makes this card so fun and easy to put together.


I love the color combination of pink/black/white. So, working with those colors made it even more of a pleasure to create.


Do you have this Friendly Flamingo Bundle? If so, how have you used it?
