'Party like a Flamingo' Flip-it Card

Good morning friends

It's Flip-It Friday here on my blog, and I have a fun birthday card to share today using the Gift Card Flip-Its by Stephanie Barnard. This is basically a rectangle Flip-It die set that comes with the optional die to cut slots in the centre portion to slide a gift card into. I love that the slot portion is optional!

I was drawn to the happy colours in a 12 x 12" sheet of Tag Cut Aparts, and used the ones that said 'thank you' to make a couple of thank you cards that will be posted next month.  Then I chose these two for my card today.

The pink palm tree was inspired by one of teammate Helen Cryer's cards - I wouldn't have thought to make a pink palm tree. Since then I have noticed lots of different coloured palm trees on cards - I guess since the silhouette is so recognizable that anything goes and it still looks like a palm tree! For my palm tree and flamingo, I used Karen Burniston's new Beach Charms and simply snipped off the hanging hole.

I added sequins for sparkle and shine, and added some Wink of Stella over the beaks and word flamingo. Man, I'm loving flamingoes these days.

Inside I added another one of the tags and a rectangle as an area to write a message and sign our names.

I still have several of the printed tags left and hope to get them onto cards and not hang onto them for months and month.
