For today’s card I used the soon to retire Stampin’ Up Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set again.  Can you tell this is one of my favorite stamp sets.  I also used some of the soon to retire Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper.  I absolutely love this paper, I’m really going to miss it.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This DSP will also be retiring as of June 3rd.

On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the 1st part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I then stamped the 2nd part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I stamped the last part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies, that will be in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, I cut the flamingo image out.  I cut a mat out for my artwork using the next size larger of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies in another pattern of the Tropical Escapes DSP.  I adhered the artwork to the DSP mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of Black Bakers Twine around the mated artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork and card front.

On the inside I stamped the 3rd step of the flamingo image from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the flamingo.  I sponged Shaded Spruce Ink around the edges of the Whisper White panel using my Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tropical Escapes DSP mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Tropical Escapes DSP to the envelope flap.
