Wishing you Peace and Joy!


Okay here it is - My First Christmas Card for the Year using one of my new Unity Christmas Stamps.  I am such a sucker for using Traditional Green and Red for Christmas Cards along with Clean and Simple Designs.  This Peace & Joy Itty Bitty Stamp by Unity was just perfect for me to achieve this.




I used the direct to rubber technique with my SU Stampin' Write Markers to colour/stamp the sentiment/image in the three colours Red, Green and Black, and I think my hand drawn black faux stitching frames this perfectly, don't you?

I have then simply mounted on Red Cardstock and added this with a Green Embossed Cardstock Strip to my White Card Base.  That's one card down and many more to go.  Because it's Friday I am joining in all the Unity Friday - Friends with Flair Fun.  This is a great spot to find some wonderful Unity Inspiration.

Wishing you Peace and Joy Today and Everyday.
