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.


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.
