Hello ...

It is Katie here today sharing a fun project idea for using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Funky Flamingo.

How to make a Funky Flamingo card

This is one of my favourite dies.  Since receiving this die I have to admit I have become a bit of a flamingo fan and am seeing them everywhere from home decor items to print on clothing.

Today I have made a card with an inked background so that the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Funky Flamingo stands out and becomes the main element on the card.

If you would like to create this card the instructions are below.

Materials:
661246 - Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Funky Flamingo 

660256 - Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Floral Wreath by Brenda Walton

Cardstock

Distress Ink Broken China, Twisted Citron

Adhesive Stones

Sentiment Stamp

Black Dye Based Ink Pad

Masking Tape

Adhesives

1. Trim a section of white card slightly smaller than the card blank as this is going to layer onto the card at the end. Place the making tape around the edges ensuring it is straight.

2.  Using the Distress Inks start adding colour.  Start off lightly as you can always add more colour but you can't take it away.  Blend the two colours together where they meet.

3.  Stamp the sentiment.  Die-cut the Funky Flamingo and the flowers from the Floral Wreath and adhere to the card panel.  Finally adhere the panel to the card blank using 3D foam pads.
