Growing In Unity Day Two … Simple Cards with Unity Pattern Paper

Today I’m sharing tags and cards made with Unity patterned paper I’ve been collecting and not using because it is so luxurious. Most of my pattern paper stash came from my Whit Kit Membership. This idea began when I received my last Unity order I purchased the Dashes & Frills Heart Die set. Let me just say if you don’t have these in your stash add them to your next order.

The card layout it very simple a patterned paper background and a stamped image die cut focal point. I really enjoy coloring so I will stamp out a bunch of images and color them when I have time. Once I have a pile of colored images, I spray them with Thermoweb Ultra Fine Glitter Spray and die cut them out.

For sentiments I batch them usually pulling a few Sentiment kits out. I cut Neenah 110# in half and place it in my Misti then I place a bunch of sentiments in the Misti with enough room around them to I can die cut them. I’ll stamp 5 or 6 pages of these then swap out the sentiments and do it again. When I’m watching tv or listening to a pod cast I mindlessly die cut out all the sentiments and organize them in piles. Then I put them in 12 pocket sleeve in a three ring binder. Now I have cards ready to send but usually I will make gift sets and package 4-6 cards for friends or hostess gifts. I will usually give the cards without sentiments attached and then include various die cut sentiments for the recipent so they can decide what they need. I will add Thermoweb tear tape to the back of the die cut sentiments so the recipent can just pull off the release paper. Below are several examples one with sentiments and some blank. I’ve listed the Stamp sets i used under each picture.

  1. What an awesome array of cards and tags. The tags are just adorable. The cards are all beautiful. I really love the look of the sympathy card with the white & gray striped BG paper. It just speaks to me in a soothing way. Perfect for a sympathy card.

  2. All of your cards are wonderful! I love the simplicity. I’m going to dig out my paper stash, dies, & “heart of autumn” and get busy

  3. So many amazing cards. I also have “collected “ so much wonderful paper from the Whit kits. You have inspired me to use some! I’ll have to look thru my colored images to see what paper I can match them up with 😉.

  4. So pretty! I struggle using my patterned paper, so I love seeing how others use it. Your examples are so helpful and lovely.
