Hello and You Rock

Wow, that week sure did fly by!  I'm here today to share the last two cards that I created for my week as the Growing in Unity girl.  For my last two cards used the December KOTM sketch again as my starting point and opted for the clean/simple and graphic look.  Just a reminder to leave a comment on all my posts this week for your chance to win a Unity Stamp set.  I'll leave the comments open until 11:59 pm on Sunday (January 1, 2012) and pick a random winner early next week.

My first card is masculine and simple with just a touch of fun (love those moustaches!!).  I'm thinking it would be great for either a man's birthday or father's day.  I used stamps from the July 2011 Kit of the Month.  In order to make the "You Rock" sentiment work with my card I stamped it and then cut it into strips before adhering across the card.  I really had to resist the urge to add some baker's twine to this card but I did it LOL!

I like to call the style of this second card "Paper Crafts (magazine) style".  It's a simple graphic card with a hint of bling.  I stamped the chevron stamp from the December KOTM with a rainbow ink pad and pieced two of them together to form the image panel.  Then I matted it onto black cardstock before adding it to a white card base.  I added some black glitter letters and a scallop die cut glitter strip (created by adding Stickles to some plain black cardstock) and a piece of black ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
