Fringed Flamingo Card with the Free File of the Week




Hiya! Today I'm bringing you a quick card using the FREE file of the week form the Silhouette Design Store. I did challenge myself to make something with the free file every week, but I'm ashamed to say that the last one was back in March. Shame on me!




This week's FREE file is a Fringed Flamingo from Simple Stories. It accompanies an offer of 25% off all Simple Stories designs in the Silhouette Design Store.

I made most of this card with Print & Cut, printing the flamingo layers in different shades of pink on white Silhouette Vellum.  The flamingo body and sentiment were a Print & Cut too.  The cut pieces are shown in the photo below together with a sheet of patterned paper and a square card blank.




The card was a quick make, but I decided not to use the line around the original print and to add a fringe at the base from vellum scraps with a scrap of paper from the patterned paper.



I'm not sure if want to add a little more to it. I'll think on it and let you know!

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
Make My Monday: #49 Summer Brights

  5. I think it's adorable as it is, but a lovely turquoise hibiscus or two would also look fab - turquoise and coral are so HOT!
