Hello guys and gals. I hope you're all well.

Today I'm showing you how to make this tactile, super cute card in a few easy steps.

The first step was to prep a card blank. I made a top fold UK A6 card blank using Baby Pink Plain 240gsm card.

The next step, was to cut down a piece of White Super Smooth 300gsm card to approx 4mm smaller round each edge than my card blank.

I placed a piece of low tack masking tape across the entire width of the card approx 1/3 of the way up. Above this, I blended some Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.

I removed the tape and replaced it across the same line. Below this, I blended some Weathered Wood Distress Oxide.

I 'splatted' the entire panel with some watered down white gesso. Like so...

I cut 2 Flamingos using Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm. I cut their legs using Black Card 240gsm. I adhered this using wet adhesive. Now, I attached a small feather to each of the Flamingos using wet adhesive.

I adhered the Flamingos to my panel using wet adhesive also.

I adhered this panel to my card blank using foam tape.

I finished the card by stamping a sentiment onto the same Baby Pink card 240gsm and attaching using wet adhesive.

The card is now complete!

I hope you like this card. I think it's super cute!

Until next time take care.

Love, Dani xx
