Quick and Simple

Here is an easy card I created with my Unity Kit Of The Month for November.  I just love their stamps, and I finally took the leap!  They always give you such an assortment.  I have other KOM sets that I have gotten second hand, and I love each one.


This months kit is called "Take Your Time", and that is exactly what I am doing in regards to Christmas.  I started with a base of kraft and a layer of black card stock.  My designer paper is from My Minds Eye, Signature Christmas pad.  My sentiment and birds with holly are both from the kit.  I really like the distressed look of both stamps.  My sentiment was stamped in Versafine, and the birds were done with the marker direct to stamp technique.  I think the next time I use them, I will try the thumping technique.  I added a couple wraps of green and white bakers twine and a simple red button.  I lightly touched the berries with a bit of sparkle.

I would love for you to give the kit a look!  Hope you have a fantastic Saturday!
