Can you believe it?! I’m back with a second Make It Monday post today! If you didn’t catch my first post, about the Christmas in July Bundle, be sure to check that one out too!
Ever since the spring, when my sister and her friends took a girls trip to Palm Springs, I’ve been smitten with pink flamingos! So when I saw that Top Dog Dies had a flamingo, I knew I was in for some fun!
This invitation was surprisingly easy to put together, primarily because of the great quality of the dies. They cut like butta! Here’s what I did to make the invite:
1. Took two different pink papers to cut the flamingo from, and I used an aged aqua/teal paper to cut the bit of water for the flamingo to stand in, as well as the banner.
2. Created the invitation in Photoshop, but I could’ve just as easily used Word to create it as it’s mostly verbiage. While creating the digital portion, I made sure to leave room to add the die cuts of the flamingo and banner.
3. I had some left over alphas from an old kit and loved how easy it was to add them to the banner. I trimmed the banner pieces just a tad to fit the limited space, but that just took a little snip on each side. Easy peasy.
4. All of the pieces were glued down on the invitation, and a little bling was added to the flamingo’s eye for the final touch.
I said it was easy! What do you think? I love it and hope you do too!
