Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Festive Flamingos

Hi crafty friends! Thanks for coming back for the second reveal day of Newton's Nook Designs holiday release! Today we're showcasing the new mini-set "Festive Flamingos." This is the perfect set if you have any friends and families that live in Florida or even for anyone living in warmer climates. I know I'll be using this set to make holiday cards for friends and family back in Southern California.
Since these flamingos are untraditional holiday critters, I decided to make a less-traditional holiday card. I stamped the flamingo directly onto a stitched circle panel. I colored the background with my YG41 Copic Marker. I then die cut the bottom portion of the circle using a happy script die. I selectively stamped the "holidays" onto a small pink banner and glued it to the "y." I hand drew the black polka dots using a "Swiss Dots" stencil as a guide. To give the cardbase some added interest, I die cut the edges using a stitched scalloped border. I then added some pink twine and Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish the card.

I just love how fun and trendy this card turned out. I tend to stick to the traditional holiday color scheme, so I really enjoyed just having fun with this card. These flamingos are just so cute and the set also includes some great sentiments too! I hope you were inspired by today's card and thanks again for stopping by!
