Unity Hip Hop {Dec 2nd}

This is my first Hip Hop with the Unity Design Team! I'm thrilled that you're here and I hope you like what you see. Today's holiday card focuses on the brand new December Kit of the Month - Just Be You but also features a couple of recent co-brand releases. Isn't that the sweetest little snowman?! If you're already a Kit Member, you'll be stalking your mailbox in a couple of weeks and if you're not, this just might be the set that entices you to join. ;)

I used the Jillibean Soup set Countdown to Christmas for the scalloped journaling circle in the background and I used the round flowers from the Bella Blvd set Bella Fiori as snowflakes which I stamped in watermark ink. The kraft panel (love that gridded frame), darling snowman and sentiment are all from the December Kit of the Month - Just Be You! I love that fun sentiment and I actually swapped the two "days". This Kit is so fun to work with and even though winter is just around the corner, so many of the images make me think of spring!

The next stop on the Hip Hop is the fabulous Julie Campbell!

A RED card, love it! Your snowman is just too cute. Now that you've switched the two "days" in the sentiment, it's hard to imagine it any other way. (btw, I know a LOT of teachers that would agree with that sentiment!) The felt diecuts are rather brilliant, too. :D Altogether, a fabulous card.
