A Bunch of Cards

Hi. Today I thought it might be nice to post some cards I made for challenges which I've not posted on my blog before.  They are made with some of my favourite Unity stamps.  There's a card for every season and I've enjoyed creating them.

A sketch challenge
For this card, I used Graphic 45's tag & papers, with a sentiment stamp.  This is a really quick way to whip up Christmas cards.
This card was for a challenge where I used black and white with  a burst of colour.  The card is almost like a gatefold card with the top flap held closed by the embossed hearts.

This was a challenge where I had to create a card & envelope set.  I used scor-buddy to create some texture on the cardbase.

This was a really simple Christmas card with just one stamped image and embossed with White embossing powder.

This challenge was to make a card with a handmade flower.  I cut a strip of paper measuring 1 1/4" and used Fiskars Apron Lace border punch along one edge of the paper.  Scored the strip (every 1/2") and make accordian folds and adhere both ends of the paper strip together. Added a button to finish up the flower.  I love the sentiment by Mother Teresa.

This last card is a shaker card.  I placed the stamped image inside the shaker, just for some fun.  It's a fun card to make.

I hope these will inspire you to create this weekend.

Have a good one!

Hi Kary,

Wow, you've been going strong in these Unity challenges! Did you win something? Your shaker card is my fave of these, but they are all really pretty! Like Maxine, I also really like your style of cards making!
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday,
