Kissing Flamingos Happy Anniversary card
If you follow my blog, you will find out in a day or so why I had to add "Happy Anniversary" to the title of this post and not just leave it as Kissing Flamingos.
When I saw the Lawn Flamingo die by Frantic Stamper, I noticed the neck on it had more of a curve to it than most of the other more expensive flamingo dies on the market. When you pair two together as a mirror image, the necks form a natural heart. The feet on the flamingos also touch each other which I thought was really cute. It's almost like they are holding hands, but with their feet.
I raised up the wings on the flamingos after cutting out a spare and just making two simple cut lines to separate the wing from the rest of the bird. This will make a great anniversary card for my parents who will be married 56 years this September.
I also used the Grass Edger and Wavy Banners and Greetings Clear Stamp set. This stamp set has both the banner stamp and the greetings which are already made with a curve to them to fit right inside the banner. However, if you want to have a straight stamp instead of the wavy look, you can just position it straight on the stamping block since it is a clear stamp and bendable.
