Hello! Welcome to my second day of Growing in Unity! Today I'm sharing a card that I started off planning on giving my husband for his birthday...but as you can see, it ended up being a "bit" too girlie for me to do that to him! I did show it to him, and he liked it, but I don't think he would have been thrilled to get it for himself! Heeheehee! Anyway, here it is:
I just LOVE this groovy little van image from the Unity Ippity line of stamps! I vaguely remember having one of these vans when I was a little girl...although I am pretty sure it was just white - or at least cream colored! Anyway, I stamped it on an oval cut with my Nestabilities, and colored it with Copic markers, then inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink.
Matted it on a cardstock scallop oval, also cut with a Nestabilities die. All my pattern papers are from My Minds Eye, and inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.
I used a Fiskars postage stamp border punch for one of the layers underneath the main image, and tied some black jute twine from Ribbon Carousel behind it, with a PTI button in the center of the bow.
I used a MFT Die-namic frame to stamp the sentiment on, then trimmed off the bottom, and mounted it on a little more of the red cardstock, with rounded off corners. Added a couple of stick on pearls to finish it off!
I hope today's card made you smile! Make sure and leave a comment for a chance to win 2 Unity Itty Bitties of your choice (like this one for example!) And come back every day this week for even more chances! Hope to see you tomorrow - can't wait to share tomorrows card with you!!!
