Create a Fun and Fabulous Summertime Flamingo Card with VersaMagic inkpads

It is almost Summer! It is time to start looking ahead for calming moments in warm weather, summer colors and holiday memories. In today’s cardmaking project, evoke the spirit of summer with this flamingo theme “chill” card. Keeping the whiteness of the paper as the basic background color, I emphasize the pastel colors and give a bright outcome on the card. The VersaMagic inkpads allow the metallic wire and beads to show even more by giving a chalk effect on all surfaces.
