Spellbinders | Grand Tropical Flamingos

Hello there and happy Saturday to you! I am here today to share a card I have made using the Spellbinders May 2024 Large Die of the Month Club Kit. It is called Grand Tropical Flamingos and you can see why! The kit has two flamingos plus lots of foliage and flowers. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by die cutting the dies from the Spellbinders May 2024 Large Die of the Month Club Kit from various shades of cardstock. I die cut the flamingos from Spellbinders Fruit Punch, Snowdrift and Onyx Cardstock. I added ink blending to the flamingos using Altenew Cherry Blossom and Rose Petal Inks. They were then assembled using Bearly Art Glue

I die cut the foliage from Spellbinders Peridot and Rainforest Cardstock and added ink blending using Altenew Green Valley Fresh Dye Ink. I cut the flower petals from Spellbinders Purple Mist Cardstock and added ink blending to them using Altenew Enchanted Garden Fresh Dye Inks. For the centres, I cut them from Spellbinders Beeswax Cardstock and then added ink blending with Altenew Golden Sunset Fresh Dye Inks

The pieces were assembled with Bearly Art Glue. For the background, I took a panel of white cardstock and added ink blending to represent water at the bottom and a sunset at the top. I used Altenew Sweet Dreams Fresh Dye Inks for the water and Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries for the sky. I adhered the flowers and foliage to the panel and then cut off the excess using Spellbinders Shears

The panel was then adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with tape runner adhesive. The flamingos were adhered using thin foam tape and Bearly Art Glue. I took the Spellbinders You Are Everything Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set and hot foiled it onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. It was die cut out and adhered to the card. To finish, I embellished with Spellbinders Silver Color Essentials Gems

This card is definitely brighter and a lot less CAS (clean and simple) than I usually go with my cards but I really like how it turned out! Thank you so much for stopping by today, it really is much appreciated. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
