FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY

Thanks for stopping by on this Friday before Christmas.  I made some cards to give as Christmas gifts this year.  I purchased some boxes of My Minds Eye card bases and then went to work dressing them up.  Of course, Unity Kit of the Month stamps are fabulous for using on cards.  I used some tag die from Spellbinders and a 6 x 6 paper pad from My Minds Eye to create the sentiment tag.  The sentiment stamp is from the September, 2011 kit of the month.  I love those little banner sentiments in the kit of the month.  The butterfly is from a kit of the month that is no longer available, but Unity has lots of butterflies on kits that are currently available for purchase.
This is another card that I made from another boxed set of My Minds Eye card bases.  The script paper is from Bazzill and I used a Fiskars border punch on each side.  I used another of the tag dies from Spellbinders to cut out the tag for the sentiment.  The stamp is August 2011 kit of the month--love it!.  I finished the card off with a couple of rhinestones. 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity goodness.  Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I've toyed with getting those boxed sets, but there's sooo many in a box. You gave me great ideas of what to do with them, if I ever break down and buy them. Beautiful cards.
