Hello! I’m back for the second week of the New Beginnings Challenge. Have you had a chance to make a card yet? Unity Stamp Company has so many perfect kits for this challenge you are sure to have some in your stash.
Today I am featuring a New Beginnings card for a new home owner. It is surely and exciting time in a person’s life when they buy a home and this card is a perfect way to celebrate with them.
This card features the Cozy Cottage stamp set. I decided to use some of the paper from Unity’s Rustic Wood paper pack to paper piece the cottage. The cottage itself uses the small brown wood planks from this pack and the roof, window and door uses a white wood grain paper.
I stamped the cottage on white card stock twice and colored the tree, grass and sky on one of them. I colored the bushes and rocks on the second one and cut them out. Tip: if you have some of the first Unity paper packs, the paper is shiny, just use StazOn ink to stamp on them. You can even shade them with your alcohol markers but you need to give them a minute to dry before touching them.
The entire month of January is the New Beginnings challenge. Just head over the Show and
Tell board on Facebook and enter your cards into the challenge album. I am so excited to see what you create.
