Christmas Memories


Hey guys! I am getting into the holiday spirit already! I think that's a record for me! I mean, I only have one card done.... but it's a start, right? ;)


This card uses one of Unity's new releases called 'Embellished Season'. It's such a pretty set & makes creating holiday cards SO easy! The images are nice and large, so all you have to do is stamp and go! It's hard to see, but this sentiment is so fun! The words 'memories' & 'shine' have that classic Unity polka dot print in them! Cute stuff!
