Kit of the Month Monday: DECEMBER

Hello and HAPPY MONDAY before Christmas!

This can be one of the busiest weeks of the year as the crunch comes, meal planning is in the works, last minute gifts are bought, and for me, cookies are made.  Yum!

In case you need a couple of quick card ideas for a special friend, here are some ideas using Unity's December Kit of the Month, "Filled with Love".  There are so many great images to work with.  If you scroll back to each Monday this month, you can see what other designers have done with the kit.

This card was made by die cutting the image and sentiment from the DECEMBER 2011 Kit.  I used the same die template (Spellbinders S4-319 Lattice Rectangles) to cut a piece for the back, then used a thin strip of liquid glue for the top only to make "the fold".  The flower is a die template as well (Spellbinders S5-067 Anemone Flower Topper).  I used a Copic Marker for the chair and some double sided BoBunny Gabrielle paper for the flower.

Sisters by Heart
To make the bottom, I used the same die template as the first card (Spellbinders S4-319 Lattice Rectangles), only I ran it through only 1/3 of the way, then backed it out of the die cut machine.  I also wanted to frame the LOVE stamp and sentiment, so you could use any label stamp you have.  I used Spellbinders S4-290 Labels Fourteen).  I just layered some ribbons for texture, used Copic markers for color, and was missing some RED, so I used some Stickles to make my own little hearts.

Hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Your first card is so pretty, love the flower. And what a great idea on the second for the bottom border! Now I can have lots of borders on my cards! Thanks for the idea!
