Cricut Happy Flamingo card

Cricut Happy Flamingo card
Fancy card Friday
Hello, friends!

Today, I have a fancy card for you that I made using the Summer Love and Animal Antics cartridges. I just love flamingos! There are mutterings that the flamingo is the new owl int he craft world. I really hope that is the case because what is there not to like about a pink bird? Seriously!

For this card, I used the Seaside paper pack and the Happy Everything stamp set. Then, I heat embossed the sentiment with my new favorite gold embossing powder!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Happy Flamingo card 

If you do not have an Explore, I cut the Flamingo from Summer Love at 2 1/2" and the beach scene from Animal Antics at 4 1/2".

Oh What a super cute card. Your scene is so pretty. Loved your commentary about your love of Flamingos and you are so right "What's not to love about a pink bird"! I love Summer Love too
I also love Animal Antics it offers so many scene options great for Layouts and Cards. Thanks for another fun creation by the one and only~~~~~

Like the Flamingo card. The Flamingos are the first thing we see when we go to the Zoo. Did you know that the Flamingos are pink due to the food they eat. I've seen white ones also. Finally figured out how to get all the pieces on one mat to cut on my Cricut Explore. Watched a video that showed to use 'select all' & 'attach' after placing all the pieces on the mat. Using set canvas did not work for me.

I love Flamingos, too! Maybe, I just love saying Flamingo! LOL. Anyway, your card is really cute, and I hope that more Flamingos will be appearing. BethAnn

You are so right! What isn't there to like about a pink bird! lol It would look pretty cool with the yellow and red and blue ones in my backyard...if it didn't freeze first!
Love the way you used patterned paper to create the different elements on the card. I still get a little queasy when I try to toss patterns all together but I am trying. Your card is so inspirational.
Thank you for sharing and hope you are having a great weekend! {{{hugs}}}
