Growing In Unity - Day 2

Hello! Welcome back for GIU Day 2.
Today I am going to share with you a quick and easy, fun to make card set.
The Itty Bitty stamp I used is Hello Daisy. I just love this stamp! It is so adorable and so fun!
The cards are 1/4 fold size and came from those dreaded bins at Target. (One can get into a lot of trouble with those Dollar Bins!) 
First, I "Ink Smooshed" the cards with green and blue marker. I found this technique under the Unity Quick Tips and you can view this tip right here. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process. I stamped the image with black Memento ink, then colored the image in using my Prisma Color Pencils. After the image was colored, I filled in the image using Glossy Accents just to give it a little zing.

Oops! I got a head of myself. After the image was colored in, I stamped the sentiment on the inside. I'm not sure what kit it is from. I received it as one of the freebies that Unity Stamp Co. gives you when you place an order. Then I just simply cut a triangle corner piece and adhered it to the left side of the card.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can place in that little pocket. I decided on seed packets and am going to send them to friends to remind them how wonderful they are.

I will be giving away 2 prizes at the end of the week! 2 lucky winners! Unity Stamp Co. is filling grab bags with 25 of their awesome stamps! So remember, you must visit me each day and leave a comment to win!
And please visit my GIU partner, Amy Martin Jones at The Tigers Haven. Amy also has 2 Amazing Prizes to give away from Unity.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing day!
Hugs,

    1. Hi! I just used my tape runner on the 3 edges. The corner pocket is wider than the seed pack, so nothing sticks. Easy in and out.
