Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I’m sharing a trio of sweet baby cards – and since I like to have cards in my stash, and you never know if you need a boy, girl (or unknown!) color combo, I often make one of each to have on hand. I’m also sharing a simple way to coordinate your envelope to your card!
Here is the video for today’s cards:
I really like to have cards in my stash – ready and waiting for when I need them and don’t have time to sit and create one at that moment. Baby cards are one of those cards that are so nice to have prepared in advance. And…since you never know if you will need one specific to a boy or girl – or more neutral for those people that like to wait and be surprised! – I often make them in sets of 3 to cover one of each of those necessities. This design was perfect to create multiples of, especially with the help of a MISTI to make it easy.
It was also fun to use a pattern paper pad that was fairly specifically designed for fall, and re-purpose some of the more neutral and simple pages as backgrounds for these baby cards.
Heat embossing the sentiments on black cardstock to pop up on foam adhesive is the perfect bold pop to make those sentiments stand out, as well as give just a touch of dimension to these otherwise flat cards.
Leaving the image simple and uncolored also speeds up the process and makes it easier to whip all of these out in quick succession.
And finally – coordinating the envelopes to the cards is a super fun finishing touch. By combining the image with the colors for each card, you can make the entire card pull the envelope into the design as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
