GIU Day 1 - Butterflies!

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 1 of my Growing in Unity week. I hope you'll find something that you like here on my blog.


For today's card, I decided to use the Another Name for Love stamp set which was designed by Gina K for Unity Stamps. I stamped the butterfly repeatedly with the Brutus Monroe Sea, Oz and Cabana inks. I also used second generation stamping to get more colors. I die cut a circle out of dark Aqua card stock and stamped the sentiment from May Blessings Follow You stamp set which was designed by Graciellie Designs with Raven Ink. I adhered it to the lower right of butterfly panel and trimmed the excess. I adhered a piece of dark aqua card stock on to an A2 card base and then adhered the butterfly panel on to it.

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.

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.
