Directions:

While Debbie has provided us with a highly embellished card using lots of die cuts this month, I'm showing a simple card made with just a few die cuts and allowing the stamped image to shine as the focal point.

  1. Cut the aqua paper to 6.5 by 5 inches and attach to card base.
  2. Cut the patterned paper to 6 by 4.5 and layer onto base.
  3. Stamp the unicorn stamp onto the Neenah card stock and color with Copic markers.
  4. Die cut both the stamped image and the other piece of patterned paper using the Label 8 dies.  I love how easy it is to create fancy mats for your colored images using dies.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  5. Attach to card base.
  6. Stamp sentiment in the corner.

And as easily as that you have a pretty card to send to someone.
