GIU Day 4 - Joy To You and Yours

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 4 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 4:


I once again decided to use the From Our Hearts To Yours stamp set. It's one of my favorites for Christmas cards. I colored the pine cone with Chameleon marker BR4 and the rest with copics - R59, R29, R37, R35 and R32 for bow and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 for the pine needles. I inked the surrounding area with DI Antique Linen. I'm kinda obsessed with this color ;) I die cut a oval window on another cardstock and adhered it on top of the image. The sentiment is also from the same set.


 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 visited my previous posts, please click here:

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.

Wow. Truly beautiful! I love the simplicity of a focus on one image and the way you've inked the background makes it look like there's a beautiful glow from behind the pine cone.
