Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours - Unity Stamps



Hello everyone!  WOW!....my button card from yesterday certainly got a lot of likes on Facebook, comments on my blog and on Instagram.  Thank you so much!!  Who knew buttons could make so many people so happy?  LOL

Today I have another cute card using my favorite new snowmen set - Snow Way by Susan K. Weckesser for Unity Stamp Co.  Susan has an awesome Christmas Love Campaign that you should check out.  Canadian Scrapbook Magazine is one of her sponsors and they are having a contest....go check it out.

I wanted to make a "from our family to yours" type of card and was looking through my stash when I found another set, also by Susan called Insta-Cute. One of the images in the kit is a film strip and I just pictured each of the snowmen in the frames....and it all came together after that.  I think it's a really cute card and I hope you agree too!  

Since I do not have a stamp with the phrase I wanted, I typed it up on the computer and printed a few sheets out.  I knew I was going to use the 2nd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Stax by My Favorite Things, so I did make sure there would be enough space between each phrase to get at least 3 cuts.   


I placed the filmstrip stamp down on the cardstock and then placed the die down to make sure I got it all centered the way I wanted.  Then I secured the die with a piece of tape and cut them out.  


I also used the largest Stitched Rectangle die from the same set and cut a bunch of pieces of red cardstock.  



Then I stamped the filmstrip above the phrase using a stamp positioner and Onyx Black Versafine ink.    


Then I stamped each of the 4 snowmen, 1 in each of the frames.  I started by masking off the first frame with sticky notes and then stamping the image in the frame, also using a stamp positioner.  I did this with each of the snowmen and each of the frames.  




This is what it will look like when all 4 snowmen have been stamped.  Come on...they are adorable...no?


After this I colored in all the images.  I cut a piece of white fun foam and adhered it to the back of the white cardstock, which I then adhered to the red cardstock, which I then adhered to my A2 top folding card base.  


I used these guys this past Saturday also and, I am happy to report, they will be in my blog post tomorrow too.  I promise after that to stop until next year.  LOL.   

Thanks for stopping by my blog...until next time -
