Two Cards for the FWF

So it's Friday again.  When this week started I was so tired just thinking all the work I had in the office... and I was so longing for Friday...  It's finally here!  And it felt sooner than I expected.

I also thought I was not going to be able to post for FWF this week but had the chance last night and even though I am going to bed kind of late, it was worth it.

I made two cards.  For the first one I used three Unity stamps.   The sentiment, the leaves and the flower.

The leaves were stamped three times... two directly on the base, and one separately and cut for dimension.


 The flower was stamped on red cardstock and then I used Glossy Accents and glitter for a really special touch.


I stressed the border and inked the white cardstock to go on top of black cardstock.

I also made another one with embossed and painted background.  I used Distress Stain for this one.  Then stamped the sentiment and added some baker's twine.  The two coupons are also stamped and cut images, in which I also stamped other two messages and applied powder that was heat embossed. I used five Unity stamps in total for this card.


I promise both the flower and the coupons have nice finishing effects that are not really appreciated in the photos... but if you are a scrapbooker, you've got the idea...


I'm linking this to Unity's FWF so don't forget to leave a comment for the opportunity to win great stamps such as the one I used for these cards.

Have a great weekend.

(As a separate note...my husband and I celebrated 15 years of marriage yesterday... pretty awesome, right?  Come back this weekend to see the card I made for the occasion.)
