Flamingos!

A quick post from me today to share this fun card I made using Trimcraft's Simply Creative papers. These fabulous papers in stunning bright colours come from the Happy Days 6x6 pad and I love them, especially the flamingos!

It was fun to make this card. Although I love colouring, it takes me such a long time to finish anything! This was a quick and simple make.

I cut a strip from the bottom of a 6x6 card blank to make a tent fold card and rounded the edges.

I covered half the card in flamingo paper and half in ombre paper, rounding the edges before sticking them down.

For the centre strip I took 2 strips of ombre paper and layered them. I then wrapped a strip of Dovecraft Flamingo Washi Tape around before placing the strip on the card.

I cut 2 flowers from different papers using a First Edition Flower Die. I layered them together and placed a button from my stash in the centre. I added the flower and Dovecraft Serendipity gems to finish the card.

Hope you all have a very happy weekend. Thank you for visiting and commenting today it is always appreciated x
