Card, Fabulous Flamingo, Tropical Escape Paper, Trio Punch, Stampin Up
If you are one of the millions that love flamingos, I’m hoping you will love today’s card.  I’ve got to admit as a black and white girl this card definitely sets of my squeal meter.  I grabbed my Stamparatus and the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set and created this vibrant Flamingo using Memento Tuxedo Black, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped each color a couple of times because I wanted the bird very vibrant and bold (the Stamparatus makes doing this so so simple).  I thought it would be fun to add a little detail to three of the corners around the flamingo and accomplished this using the Detailed Trio Punch, and I love how it lets the basic black layer beneath it show through.  I chose the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper for my bold background layer and some black satin ribbon for a bit of sparkle.

I chose to use three Rhinestone Basic Jewels and colored them Black to match using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  As you can see I assembled the card and popped up the Flamingo layer for added depth.  There is no sentiment on this card front, which means I can send it for all types of occasions.  I can add a sentiment to the inside or just write a note, depending on what the occasion calls for.  I think this would be the perfect card to create multiples of and have in my stash for whenever needed.
