We made it! It is finally Friday. We all made it through another week. You guys all hung out with me all week, so thanks for the support! I hope I provided a little inspiration along the way.
Today I leave you with 2 cards. Both of these cards use some of the amazing border background stamps that Unity has. These border backgrounds provide you with an easy card to create. I will take some time, every couple of months, to stamp out several of the border background images, color them up and leave them. Then, whenever I need a thank you card, a sympathy card, a just because or whatever themed card, I can easily add a sentiment and some bling and I’m good to go.
I chose this background because this is the time of the year here in Houston that we can go strawberry picking at a local farm. It’s something I enjoy doing with my mom every year.
I stamped the image and used Gina K Designs Detail Gold Embossing Powder I colored the image using COPIC markers. I cut out the thank you from red cardstock and the background using some vellum. The thank you die is by CZ Designs at Simon Says Stamps To finish it off, I added some red peal jewels to the card.
The second border background that I chose was this beautiful shell stamp. I spend several of my vacations on the beautiful island of St. John in the USVI. I had to color this up to give me a little beach time.
I also stamped this using Gina K Designs gold embossing powder and colored it using COPIC markers. I cut the word Beautiful three times from coral cardstock. I stacked them on top of each other to provide a thicker sentiment. Finally I added some coral jewels to give it a little bling.
And that’s a wrap folks. I truly enjoyed spending this week with you at Unity Stamp. I hope you enjoyed spending it with me. Last little reminder, leave a comment here to be eligible for a prize pack from Unity.
