Have I ever mentioned that I really love Unity Stamp Co.?

I really do.

You can read their blog 
Or shop for stamps 

They are so easy to use. I have this card layout. That I use for many, many cards. It is so easy to put together, in many different colors, and just keep around to add a sentiment to, as needed.

Here is today’s card:


On this card, I use a sentiment from …EVERYTHING COMES FULLTURN.

This is my blank layout:

How cute is this? It is a very simple. Card Base. Two strips of pattern paper in one color, approx. 4x2.5”. One paper in coordinating color/pattern, 4x5.25”. Apply the strips at the very top and very bottom of this piece. Sew (or faux stitch) where to back layer is visible at the pattern strips. Apply a circular “frame” for your sentiment. Mine is a gear shape. I love using that shape because if I use guy colors, it is still “manly” enough.

Then when I have occasion for a card. Say birthday, sympathy, graduation, get well, love, Valentines… I just get a Unity Sentiment – typically from one of the EVERYTHING kits – and I have a very simple, yet awesome card to give to someone special!


There are just a few of the Everything Sets!!!

Here are a few of my other cards made with this layout, and Unity Stamps –






Thank you for coming and visiting me today!

How clever of you to have those card bases all set to go so you can just add a sentiment. I love the different looks you get, just by switching papers and colors. Unity has so many great sentiments that you can always find just the right one.
