I had a quick glance through my stamps, trying to see which ones jumped out at me to showcase Flirty Flamingo. What jumped out was some cards in the Santa Express Memories & More cards which feature some pinks in the designs.
The Memories & More Cards have such a lovely range of greens, complimented by the cheerful pink.
The first card I made was a bit of a disaster. The background had some text on it which I covered with the Merry Christmas label. But to my eye, the position of the label is really unbalanced and leaves a lot of plain white card and uncertainty about what the image is supposed to be. Sad, but the label couldn't have gone anywhere else on the card. I think I might gently peal it off and stick a whole heap of die-cut foliage underneath in Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaroon.
The second card was heaps better, just because the background card was SO gorgeous!
This is probably one of the simplest cards I have ever made. I trimmed the Memories and More card down to fit nicely on a card front. On a scrap of Basic White card I stamped a Christmas sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink. The greeting was die-cut using a die from the Painted Labels dies, and then a piece of ribbon was looped underneath.
One other little finishing touch, was running around the groove in the die-cut with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Write marker. I like that extra touch.
Don't you love the colours and tree pattern in the background?
