Unity stamps shaped card challenge

Unity had a challenge linked on their FB page today to make a shaped card (no squares or circles, either) and so I decided to use my newest Nesties.

I won these Unity Stamps from a contest on Ellen Hutson's blog back in October and decided to use them tonight. I love how they look with the black, white, and red combo, especially with some of the stamps heat embossed. I use the oval and scallop oval Nesties to frame an image in the center of the card. I tied on a red heart paper clip as a charm using some plaid Offray ribbon.

I sent my Valentine's Day cards to OWH today, so this one won't make it this year. Maybe I'll send it to someone special. ;-)

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 12/5/11): 1695


  1. Kathryn, I love this. I think I need these Nesties, I've seen several cute thing made with them. I love the white on black, what cute stamps you won!

  2. Love the black and white with pops of red, and that heart clip is so sweet!

    BTW, the embossing folder you were asking about that Pam used in her card for OWH is a Cuttlebug folder. It's one of the first ones I bought and I love it!

  3. This is totally cute!! I love the colors, unique shape, and especially that red heart clip! Great card, and congrats on getting so many of your cards into the loving hands of OWH!! You ROCK!!

  4. I don't think I've ever met a black/red/white card I didn't love--and this one's no exception. Very cute, Kathryn. I've enjoyed your other valentines, too, just haven't had a chance to comment. We are providing hospice care for my MIL and there's just so many hours in the day. But wanted to let you know I do look, and appreciate the inspiration.
