Growing in Unity – Day 1

It’s hard for me to believe that this week is Thanksgiving. And I can’t believe my GIU week has finally arrived! I am so thrilled to get to share some of my ideas with you.

I thought I’d kick off my GIU week with some holiday inspiration.

This card was created using a kit of the month “Conspiracy of Love” from October 2017.

I stamped this pretty image in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers. I wanted to go with some non traditional colors for this card. Next, I went over the image with clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle and shine. I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger Watering Can embossing powder and then cut out the panel. My original idea was to make a slimline card, but then I changed my mind and went with a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2” top folding card base. The layering panel is cut from Tonic Mirror Card in Burnished Rose. Isn’t that cardstock gorgeous?!? I’ve been hoarding that paper for a while but thought it would be pretty with these ornaments. Before adhering my stamped panel, I glued some white craft foam to the back to add some dimension to my card.

If you look closely, you’ll see the Wink of Stella.

I liked how this card turned out, so I decided to make another card. I followed a similar process, but I just stamped my sentiment on this version. This image is from the October 2018 kit of the month “All Winter Long” and the sentiment is from “Shine Bright Girls.”

I really like the soft, non-traditional colors and clean design of these cards.

I hope you will create some holiday cards this week. I know I still have lots to make!

Did you know that just by commenting on this blog post you might win some Unity goodies? I mean, who doesn’t want some free stamps, right?!?

I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to see what I have to share!
