Cricut Three Flamingos Card

Cricut Three Flamingos Card
Fancy Card Friday

Hello, friends!

Today, I have a card made using the Summer Love and Artiste cartridges. Also, I used the writing tool on the Cricut Explore for my sentiment. 

As I have said before, I am really crazy about flamingos at the moment. I even recently got a flamingo handbag and flamingo shoes. Not only that I made flamingos the theme on this year's team shirts for convention! Seriously, what is not to like about a pink bird?

For the sentiment, I used a free font I found online. It is called Eyes Wide Open and can be downloaded by going here. I used the gray pen and then colored it in with a white gel pen.

If you need a reminder on how write on projects using the Cricut Explore, check out this video I made ==>

If you have a Cricut Explore here is the file: Cricut Three Flamingos Card

If you are sans Cricut Explore, I cut the card out at 8 1/2" (from Summer Love) and the bow out at 1/2" (from Artiste)

Love the flamingos! I also like how you filled in the letters. I've gotten frustrated using the pens with my Cricut because my fonts are just outlines...obviously, I never thought of filling in the letters, duh!

Great card! BTW did you know the guy who invented the pink flamingo lawn decoration passed away recently?
