How to make a flamingo handmade card

I started with an A5 off-white hammered card and then creating a two-tone background by mixing two papers from Dovecrafts’ fabulous Kiss & Makeup 6×6 inch paper set.

One of the great things about using paper packs is that all the colours coordinate in the different pattern designs so you can mix-and-match them on your card to create a lovely effect.

Iris folding instructions

The iris folding flamingo was completed following the free pattern which you can download from the box at the bottom of this page.

Flamingo card embellishments

Adding all of the finishing touches to this flamingo card was really fun.

I *may* have gone a little bit overboard with the feathers… but… really, can you EVER have too much pink on a card? 🙂

Two shades of feathers, satin butterfly embellishments, silver peel-off stickers and pink flat-backed gemstones were all used to create my finished card.

I hope that you enjoy it, and I hope that this flamingo card making pattern comes in useful to you!

Happy crafting,
