Growing in Unity, Day5


Wow, I can't believe it's the last day of my week in GIU. It's been a lot of fun and I'm glad I'm back blogging. I don't think I can commit to every day but I'll be back 2-3 times/week.

This is another card that the pic doesn't do justice to. I absolutely love the fonts and sayings in many of the Donna Downey kits from Unity. Here are the deets on the card: Cardstocks used are SU Crumb Cake and SU Naturals Ivory (hope that is still the name). Inks used are Versamark Dazzle Champagne,
Brilliance Graphite Black, and Versamagic Hint of Pesto. Ribbon is PTA Terracotta Tile Grosgrain. Rhinestones are BasicGrey.

The focal piece is die cut with a Spellbinders Labels 4 die from SU Naturals Ivory and then sprayed and misted with Glimmer Mist in an orange and yellow color (can't remember the exact names and can't find them on the glimmer mist site--think it's pineapple and tiger lily). The sentiment and leaves are from Unity Store Kit that I can't find on the website but here's the bigger version: http://unitystampco.com/stamps/2454-UK438A_The_Artist_in_You Sentiment is stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black and the tree/trunk image is stamped and stamped off wth Versamagic Hint of Pesto. The cardbase is stamped with the bigger image in Versamark Champage and I thought about clear embossing it but was going for a softer look.


I punched a slot out of the focal piece and spine of the card to thread the ribbon through and as much as I love PTI and it's grosgrain, I wish this ribbon was a wee bit smaller.

Thanks for visiting and be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a Unity Kit.
