Tickled Pink Birthday

{If you are looking for my Word Art Wednesday post, please scroll down one post or click here.}

For my card today, I decided the showcase the beautiful flamingos in the Tickled Pink stamp set on a Joy-Fold Card. I used the video tutorial found here for my version of this card. The finished card is 4.25" square. The base cardstock measures 6.25" x 4.25" scored at 4.25" on the long side. The insert piece measures 6" x 3" and is scored at 3" on the long side. The base pieces are decorated with papers from the Blooming Garden Collection Paper Pad. The sentiment was stamped in the middle of an inked die cut Double Stitched Circle. The circle was matted and adhered to the insert piece. The flamingos were stamped and colored with Copics before being die cut with the coordinating Flamingo dies.They were popped up on the sentiment circle. A fine tip black pen was used for faux stitching on each panel.

More papers from the same collection are used on the interior. The birthday sentiment was stamped inside a Stitched Circle die cut. Another Copic colored and die cut flamingo was added to carry the flamingo theme to the inside of the card. The plain cardstock panel allows room for a message to the recipient.

When closed, the left edge of the insert is tucked behind the single fussy cut flower (from one of the patterned papers) that was adhered to a circle die cut before being popped up over the background papers. Three more fussy cut flowers are used as added embellishments. The flower centers have Glossy Accents added to them while the flower petals and the flamingos have a couple coats of clear Wink of Stella to help them shine. As a finishing touch, some sequins topped with stickles were added to the card front.
