month and they have accepted Yay!! More the merrier!
Thank you for joining us
Our cue this month is
All Is Calm
Fitting for the month of December
I absolutely love making Christmas cards and sending to those who appreciate all the work that goes into making a single card, let alone 60 or more per year.
This is probably one of my favorites!!
For this card, I stamped the image onto PTI white cardstock. It is very Copic friendly, with no bleeding, or drinking up the ink in the markers!
Using poppy red cardstock as my base, I dug around through my pattern paper for some plaid!
Plaid just says Christmas to me! #madforplaid
See the top left corner?? I found a pine bough, and a mistletoe branch. I stamped, and colored them, then fussy cut them out to add some dimension to this card...at first, I was going to use the sentiment on the inside, but when I "tested" it out on front, I liked it right there!
(yes, it barely fit on that die cut)
I added some silver thread from Stampin' Up, and some Prima red flowers~
I also added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to the snow, the smoke, and the clouds.
Below is the kit I used and a link to Unity's website so you can check it out for yourself. I have to say, that since I joined Unity's Kit of the Month I have not been disappointed.
We don't get a preview of the upcoming kit before it is sent, but I know I'll just love it!!
Have you seen the December KOM?? It looks like Unity made that kit just for me!! It's perfect!!
Monday December 9th thru Friday the 13th starts
my Growing in Unity week
I'll admit, I am terrified!
I won't have techniques, or anything fancy, but I will share an array of cards, not just Christmas
I really hope you join me and comment, because I'll be drawing 2 winners for a grab bag of stamps from Unity just for commenting on my week..
