<<<You can find it here.>>>

Welcome to the 3rd day of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

Today's card is a simple one to create, really. I think it looks more involved than it really is.
First, I placed some strips of washi tape on my card base. Then, I die cut a piece of cardstock (the same size as the front of the card) and saved both the positive and negative cuts. I adhered the negative die cut to the card front and then added the positive cuts as embellishments. It's all topped off with a bit of twine and one of my favorite new sentiments from Unity - this one is from the A Lovely Butterfly Day Itty Bitty.

(If you are interested in seeing a couple more cards created with the same basic supplies - see my post here.)
