Day 2, Growing in Unity 2019

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Good Morning!
Today is my day two for sharing with you a card I made using a Unity Stamp. This card was made for a family friend who celebrated turning 90 years young! Since he has such a great sense of humor, I thought Brian Guy would be a great image for his card.

I did a bit of paper piecing for the shirt and pants by stamping the image on some bits of design paper I had in my scrap box. Then I trimmed them up and attached to another image stamped on white card stock.




Supplies for 5 x 7 card

  • Image “Brian Guy from Unity Stamp Company
  • Card stock from Stampin Up and American Crafts!
  • Design Paper from my Scrap box
  • Fresh Sage Silk from Fun Stampers Journey
  • India Ink from memories
  • Medallion from my stash
  • ProMarkers
Sketch: My Favorite Things MFTWSC58 (flipped)



Here are links to the Unity Stamp Company Store and Social Media Sites!

Great use of this image. I am sure the 90 year old will appreciate the sentiment since growing old certainly happens more quickly than we imagine it will.
