Growing in Unity Day 4

Helllllooooo again! I can’t believe I’m already typing up day 4!! This week has flown by for me and I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out those lovely stamps and use them!! Creating so many cards was a huge undertaking, but if you start early enough and limit yourself to just a few designs, you can do it too!

Today’s card is brought to you by the November 2021 KOTM {Kinda Sorta Love Ya}. This set has a great buck wearing a scarf and I loved the idea of having a simply stamped buck with a colored scarf. Initially, I was going to paper piece the scarf, but that’s a lot of cussy fussing for me…not a fan!

I started out stamping the buck with my ground espresso Distress Oxide ink. Next, I stamped it on a scratch piece of paper and then cussy fussed the scarf out of the image. My image didn’t have to be perfect because it will literally go into the trash once I finish my cards. (If you look really close, you’ll see my furry helper in the background – he approved my card!)

I pre-treated my paper with an anti-static powder tool and stamped the sentiment and scarf portion of the buck with VersaMark. I have a large stash of embossing powders in various colors, I believe these are Hero Arts. There was a beautiful red that I thought would really pop that I decided to use. I noticed there was a part of the scarf that didn’t get covered by the VersaMark ink, so I pulled out my VersaMarker to be sure it didn’t look like I messed it up!

After heat embossing, I mounted my card front onto a piece of red cardstock, then onto a card base. I also stamped an inside sentiment.

I now have 4 quick and simple designs that I’m able to quickly get completed and mailed out! Thank you so much for stopping by again today. Be sure to leave a comment for a chance for some Unity goodness!!

  1. Wonderful card! I donated almost 300 Christmas cards this year so started working on them in September. I did a lot of batch cards to make it quick.
