Growing in Unity Day 4 - What a Pear we Make!

Happy Thursday everyone - welcome to Day 4 of my GIU fun! I'm the Growing in Unity gal this week over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog, which means I'll be sharing a project created with my Unity stamps with you every day. I invite you to come back each day and leave a comment for a chance to win your choice of (2) Itty Bitty stamps! Woohoo! If you're new to my blog, I'd love it if you became a follower and join in the fun over on the Caffeinated Papercuts Facebook page. :)

All right, today we've got something completely different - a CAS (clean and simple) card with no sequins. Yeah, I'm not sure how that happened either. I'd also like some applause for not going back and adding some later. ;)

And let the puns begin! I ran a second piece of white card stock through the Big Shot with my chevron embossing folder to create the background, making sure to stamp the sentiment first. (Trust me on this.) The pears I stamped on pear-ish colored card stock, then decked out with Glossy Accents and Distress Glitter.

I then let them dry a reeeeaaaaallllyyyy long time. We're talking overnight here, people. And no poking at it before morning to see if it's dry; been there, done that, got the fingerprints in a previous project to prove it.

Just look at that sparkle and shine! A bit of foam tape to hold it all in place, and you've got a really fun card for your stash.

Tomorrow is my last day as GIU gal! I hope you'll stop by, and in the meantime, Happy Crafting!
