It's the Christmas Eve edition of FWF Friday (and last chance to win my giveaway!!)

Merry Christmas Eve!  Just a quick reminder that today is your last chance to comment on this previous post (click on link please) for your chance to win a set of Tim Holtz embossing folders and some stamps.

And now onto today's business.....FWF Friday.  Today I thought I'd share TWO shaped cards.  I LOVE to make shaped cards.  For both of these cards I used my Mom's Cricut machine for the shaped bases.  When I make shaped cards I try to keep them less than 5.5" square so they will fit into some of the standard envelopes I have in my collection.

Just a reminder you can find the list of today's participants later today on the Unity Blog.  Look for the Flair blinkie and leave a comment for your chance to win some Unity Stamps.

For the first card I used one of Unity's Itty Bitty stamps:


Supplies:
Stamps: Itty Bitty You're a Real Fun-gi by Unity Stamps
Papers: October Afternoon, Bazzill, Pink Paislee, Jillibean Soup
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Cricut cartridge (Card), Fabric store trim, Cosmo Cricket mini letters, Copic markers

For this second card I created a paper pieced apple shape and if you look closely on the card base you will see that I stamped some apples onto the cardstock in red ink.  Then I added a tag with sentiment and some raffia to give it a rustic look.   All of the stamps are from Unity's fabulous Kits of the Month.



Supplies:
Stamps: Unity Stamps Kit Of The Month (apples-July, and sentiment-Sept).
Papers: Bazzill
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Barn Door Distress Ink
Accessories: K and Co journalling box, raffia, Cricut Friendly Critters cartridge

Jennifer, these are both darling! I love the shapes of both. The ruffly ribbon makes the first card and the apple stamps are a great background for the second card. Merry Christmas!!
