Our theme for August is...
So many ideas running through my head, as I love Fall, Halloween, and Christmas.
So my biggest challenge was deciding "what" to use.
Follow along as I continue with my "New Years Resolution" to use Unity stamps I haven't ever used before.
So far, I've done it every month this year and it's been wonderful to use these stamps and show them some love!
I combined these holiday stamps with a few of my favorite things, like heat embossing, colored/kraft cardstock, and ribbon. And here's what I came up with...
Shhhh... nobody tell, but this card is for our daughter and her groom to be who are getting married in October with a Masquerade Ball theme. As we ALL love Halloween. Fun, right? We can't wait to celebrate!
So I wanted their card to be a little spooky, but elegant with lots of embossing and I think I achieved that with a classic "gate fold" card, with a band, and using a few of their wedding colors too! I hope they like it!

I got this amazing deer in a grab bag, but it's actually part of a past monthly kit, and I had to use it. Then I discovered I hadn't used this sweet holiday word background either, so I knew I had to use them together.
I've been wanting to create more with kraft cardstock, combined with some more heat embossing, a few embellishments and this will be ready to mail for the holidays!
