CAS Unity Tree

Published by at 7 17 pm under General Purpose Cards,Unity

A Clean and Simple Challenge, a Unity tree, ribbon, rhinestones, a bird and some Basic Grey — nothing more needed for this CAS card, and it was FUN!!! Today’s CAS challenge required that we choose a pair of baby shoes from a catalog provided as our inspiration. These are the baby shoes I chose — aren’t they CUTE!!! And here’s my card:

This card is 5.5″ square. The white tree panel is 4″ square. I JUST LOVE this combination of the sheet from Eva by Basic Grey with the pink and brown striped ribbon — LOVE it!!! I used that same combo of paper and ribbona couple weeks backon this card. This May Arts 3/8″ ribbon is available at My Ribbon Sale, in 10 colors and 2 widths! Fun stuff!!! And the rhinestones are pink — they look so very pretty IRL, but that seems to be lost in the photo.

Stamps: Growing in Unity by Unity Stamp Co.

Paper: SU Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, White, Eva DP by Basic Grey

Ink: Versa Fine Vintage Sepia

Accessories: May Arts 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, Kaiser Rhinestones, Martha Stewart Bird Punch, Glue Glider.

Shopping:

Joan’s Garden has Basic Grey paper, Kaiser products and the Glue Glider.

My Ribbon Sale offers this and other May Arts ribbons.

Thanks much for checking in!!! We had a beautiful day today and the snow is melting like crazy. That’s a good thing, for sure, but it sure makes for some muddy messes!!! Wishing you all a good week with beautiful weather, too!!! Be back soon — hope you can join me!!!

  1. What a lovely card, Sharon! I’ve always admired that MS bird punch but resisted buying it on the basis that I had no idea what to do with it. You have since changed my mind. This card is wonderful.
