Unity December Kit of the Month

In case you need a couple of quick card ideas for a special friend, here are some ideas using Unity's December Kit of the Month, "Filled with Love".  There are so many great images to work with (see complete kit below).

This card was made by die cutting the image and sentiment from the DECEMBER 2011 Kit.  I used the same die template (Spellbinders S4-319 Lattice Rectangles) to cut a piece for the back, then used a thin strip of liquid glue for the top only to make "the fold".  The flower is a die template as well (Spellbinders S5-067 Anemone Flower Topper).  I used a Copic Marker for the chair and some double sided BoBunny Gabrielle paper for the flower.

Sisters by Heart
To make the bottom, I used the same die template as the first card (Spellbinders S4-319 Lattice Rectangles), only I ran it through only 1/3 of the way, then backed it out of the die cut machine.  I also wanted to frame the LOVE stamp and sentiment, so you could use any label stamp you have.  I used Spellbinders S4-290 Labels Fourteen).  I just layered some ribbons for texture, used Copic markers for color, and was missing some RED, so I used some Stickles to make my own little hearts.

Hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS week!
