GIU Day 5!

Where has this week gone?
I've had a great time sharing my Unity cards with you this week!
I've really enjoyed every one's wonderful comments, I am sad to see it come to an end.
I hope you will continue to stop by my blog every now and then.

Today I have two cards to share, both were made with Unity's Winter Greetings set.

First up is a fun little Christmas card.


I used the sketch from this month's Be Inspired Challenge.
After coloring this fun little snowman, I added some glitter to the trim on his hat and jacket.
I also added some Smooch Pearlized Top Coat to the die cut Christmas lights and the stand of lights the snowman is holding, to give them some glimmer.
Here's a closer look at the shimmer on the lights.


My second card is a Thank You card, made with the snowflakes from the same set.


I stamped the snowflakes repeatedly with Versamark ink.  After heat embossing with clear EP, I used Distressed ink to color the snowflake panel.  Die cut the Thanks from silver glitter paper and popped it up with foam tape.  Quick and easy thank you note for all those Christmas gifts!

Remember to leave a comment.  I will draw a name from all the comments left this week.  The winner will receive two Itty Bitty stamps of their choice.

Thanks for such for sharing in my GIU week!  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!

God bless!!
