Home Is Where You Park It


Hello everyone.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.

Eyelet Outlet has some new Flamingo Brads and I wanted to get in on the fun using them.  I started going through my stamps and pulled out a set I purchased on impulse and wondered if I would ever actually use it.  Well, the answer to that is, YES, and it's all because of these flamingos!

Here's my card featuring this darling flamingo as yard art!


I stamped the image and colored it using Copic markers with colors to coordinate with the Striped Washi Tape, which I applied to all four sides of a larger panel and mitered the corners.  And, voila, a perfect frame for my focal image.

I placed my flamingo yard art front and center and used the Sun and Cloud Brads to complete the scene.  To finish, a greeting using the AlwaysHere font on a mat of Tempting Turquoise card stock; to match the card base.  Here's a closer look at the main attraction:



For the inside, I typed the sentiment using the same font and another flamingo for good measure.




I hope you enjoyed my card today!  I sure enjoyed sharing it with you.  See you next time. 


Who provided the inspiration for these cards?  Katy did!
