Flamingo Shaker Card

Hello lovely peeps

I'm back with the second shaker card that I started at cardmaking club on Thursday.

This was as far as I got initially :o)

The flamingo die was from a Chinese seller on ebay and I used it to cut an aperture in one of the papers in the First Edition Paradise Crush 8x8 paper pad.  I backed it with acetate and cut a slightly larger mat of a matching paper to frame it. It looked a bit busy with the pattern behind the aperture so I added a rectangle of white card before adding 2 layers of foam tape and pink sequins.

I picked out some more of the gorgeous papers to layer up a 7x7" card and cut flowers out of one of them to use as embellishments.

There are a couple of other papers in the pad that have butterflies and flamingos on, so I cut some of those out too. To match the lovely turquoise colour around the flamingo I cut some Bonnets and Bowties Solids paper with a Memory Box 'Tropical Leaf' die.
