Cards to Die For

Happy Friday, from Jules of Paper Gems by Jules! What an insane amount of sales, right? Well, now let's talk about what we can do with all these new crafty goodies! Today I'm sharing two similar cards with fun differences!

This month has been filled with so many awesome new stamps, dies, stencils and foils! So let's use it all to make these holiday cards that need to go out soon (no pressure). Let's start with the Happy Holidays card.

For this card, I used the following Unity supplies:

  • Say It Big Holiday Dies

  • Ornamental Pines Coordinating Dies

  • Polka Dot Stencil

I started with the background and used Rustic Wilderness and Crackling Campfire with the Polka Dot stencil. I thought it would be fun to mix and match the colors. Next I die cut the two layers of "Holidays" from the Say It Big - Holiday die set. The background I did only once and once again used Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink to color it in. The actual Holidays I die cut 3 times and stacked them together, making the top red using Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide Ink and glued that to the background. Last I die cut "happy" from the Ornamental Pines die set and stacked that on top. Using some red yarn... I packaged this card up to look like a gift. Now, let's try it with a little more sparkle.

For this card, I used the supplies above along with these supplies:

  • Deco Foil Duo Transfer Gel

  • Deco Foil Red Transfer Foil

Oh yeah!! To start this card, I secured the Polka Dot stencil over the card stock and applied the Duo Transfer Gel evenly over the card stock. Next, I gently removed the stencil and let the piece dry overnight (but it dries in an hour or when it's clear). The cool thing about the Duo Transfer Gel is that it dries sticky so you don't need a laminator to use it... and I didn't. I cut some Red Foil and placed it over the piece and rolled it in my Big Shot. Boom... we've got some bling on this card. Using different dies and the same process as above, we've got another fun card for the holidays.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you found some inspiration! Please make sure to share your Unity creations on our Facebook page: Unity {Show & Tell}. Until next time...

Happy Crafting!
