Hello friends! I am on the Unity Blog today, with a set of holiday cards made by my son. I made a sample using a solid reindeer stamp, but he wouldn’t have it. He went through my stash and picked out his own stamps and made his cards. We spent several hours playing with Unity stamps, Lindy’s Magicals and Distress Inks to make 22 cards for all his friends at school. Before I dive into the card designs, I would like to remind you about the year-end clearance sale at Unity Stamp Company. One last round of shopping before Christmas (wink wink). So we started by cutting down 9″x12″ watercolor sheets into 8 pieces. Next, Shrikar picked out Sparkle All the Way stamp set. I helped him arrange it on the Misti and he stamped it out in a bunch of panels using Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. Then, we had a spritzing party with Lindy’s Magicals as a team. Shrikar would pick out colors, I sprinkled them on the ornaments and he spritzed them with water. And so on we went till we had several panels ready for their card bases. For the next card design, he chose Winter Blessings and then a Christmas greeting from Holly Time. He used Rustic Wilderness Distressink and Gingerbread dye ink to stamp the images and sentiments. Because we stamped on textured watercolor paper we used the spritz and stamp technique where he spritzed the stamp with a quick mist of water after inking them and then stamping. Next, Shrikar used the snowman and sentiment from Love Into Giving for kraft envelopes. We broke out a pack of kraft card bases with matching envelopes that we purchased from Hobby Lobby. Shrikar patiently applied glue to each panel and adhered them to the card bases. Then he wrote his friends’ names and signed each card. This took several hours and made his tiny little hands pretty tired. But this mamma’s heart kept swelling with pride as he refused my offer to write names and slowly and carefully got through all his cards. Do visit my Instagram today to see him in action.
