Growing In Unity - Friday

Hi!

It's Friday and that means it's the last day of my Growing In Unity blog posts.
This has got me back into blogging after a long break and I think I will continue to blog more regularly again.

Today's project is a winter holiday card using Unity's Warmth & Winter Wishes stamp and matching die.




I love the little tree but the matching die is really tricky to place exactly on the stamped image! I also managed to give myself a paper cut from a piece of cardstock! So I've really suffered for my art today... ;)

Thanks again for all your comments this week, and please check back during the weekend to see who the lucky winner of two Itty Bitty stamps from Unity Stamp Company is! 

Have a great weekend!

Hi Julie, thanks for your comments this week! I think that stamp + die are still available on Unity's website yes!

I love matching stamps and dies, and this tree is adorable with those pretty papers!

Oh what a beautiful card. Yet so simple. Sometimes I think we put to much in to our cards and yet the simples is the most attractive. Thanks so much for all the ideas this week.

This is adorable; I just love that tree and die! Did you use a tiny bit of painters tape to hold the die in place? That's my secret trick. :)

Laura Jane said...

ACK! I didn't know they had stamps and MATCHING dies!
Thanks for suffering for us!
Lovely card.
