GIU Day 2 - Christmas Tree

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 2 of my Growing in Unity week. I'm so excited to be the Growing In Unity girl this week. This week, Monday through Friday, I will be sharing my cards that I have made with Unity Stamps.

Here's what I've made for Day 2:


I used the Christmas tree and sentiment from the From Our Hearts to Yours stamp set and stamped it with Memento tuxedo black. I colored the tree with Copics G99, YG67, YG63 and YG61. For the ornaments, I used BIC metallic markers silver, teal and pink. I cut out a oval window on a piece of white card stock of size 4.25" x 5.5" and inked it with Distress ink Antique Linen. Adhered it on to the stamped panel with foam tape, then adhered the entire thing on to the card base with ScorTape.


I love the vintage look and feel of this Christmas card. How do you like this card? Let me know in the comments. Unity Stamps has generously offered a prize of a grab bag of 25 random stamps to 2 people who comment on my GIU posts. You have until Sunday night to comment on all my GIU posts. I will pick a winner on Monday. In case you have not seen my previous posts, please click here - Day 1

I highly recommend you to check out my GIU partner - Crystal O. Minkler's blog. She's very talented and I'm sure she has a wonderful project to inspire us today.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please do visit me tomorrow to see a new project with Unity Stamps. Hope you have a great day.
