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 my first card with the adorable new October 2021 Kit of the Month! This kit starts to transition into those cold and cozy days of winter – and I couldn’t resist putting this little giraffe with his cozy stocking cap to use right away!
I started off by choosing my pattern paper for this card. At first, I was going to use the layered strips as banners coming down from the top, and as I played with the arrangement, they fell into this place, and I knew it was perfect. I taped it in place with temporary adhesive, trimmed off the excess, and then mounted it with foam adhesive.
I colored the giraffe in coordinating colors so it matched with my pattern paper – I often do this, choose my paper first, then color to match. Sometimes it’s easier than coloring and looking for pattern paper to match afterwards!
I used a layered frame die to cut my sentiment out, and added a sprinkle of enamel dots as a finishing touch!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
