Unity Sponsor Month Continues at Christian Paper Crafts


Happy Monday, everyone!! Counting down to Thanksgiving....YAY!!!

November is winding down, but we are still in full swing showcasing our sponsor, Unity Stamp Company, at Christian Paper Crafts. Though I had two cards planned for today, my 18-yr old Kitty was injured lastnight and I didn't get the second one finished yet.

When I started this card, I had something else in my head, and I'm not sure how I got here, but I kinda like how it turned out.....even though the copper embossing powder and I had quite the battle! This set is called "Simple Blessings". The leaves and sentiment were embossed with Ranger Copper Embossing Powder on Pumpkin Pie cardstock, then painted with Smooch pearlized paints. For MORE shimmer, I sprayed the finished project with "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist. (The ribbon I found in the $1 spot at Target!!! Score!!!) Click on the photo for a closer look!

I used a few challenges for this card also....love to kill many birds with one stone, ya know? Over at Splitcoast, the Ways To Use It challenge was to make a project with the theme of "Giving Thanks"; the Limited Supply Challenge was to make a "Long and Tall" card; and the Stamping Sisters In Christ Challenge was to make a Thanksgiving card.

For more Unity projects from our DT at Christian Paper Crafts, check out our Design Team Delights gallery. We will continue to post Unity projects there for the rest of the month. Thanks again, Unity!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a blessed day!!

What a lovely design and such gorgeous leaves and ribbon. I like those longer cards, and don't make them often enough. Thanks for participating in the SSCC this week.

Your card was well worth the battle! Keep us informed about your poor little kitty.
