Festive Flamingos–MFT October Card Kit Release


Hello and welcome to MFT’s October Card Kit Release! Festive Flamingos Card Kit is now available for purchase at the MFT Online Boutique! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to get all the details!


For this card I created a scene using a couple of the ice-skating flamingos—can it get any better than ice –skating flamingos?? I started by sponging the background, then added a frozen “pond” using Whimsical Waves Background stamped with Versamark on Stone Gray card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder to imitate skate marks. I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, elements from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics, trees from Cool Christmas, and stamped the sentiment.


The flamingos were stamped on No Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on the card front with foam tape.

And there you have it for MFT’s October Card Kit Release! I seriously LOVE this kit! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Festive Flamingos Card Kit so go shop! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
