Unity Hip Hop {Jan 6th}

This is my second post of the day.
For the Pink Cat Studio Valentine Release,
please scroll down or click HERE.

It's Hip Hop time again! Be sure to start at the Unity Blog so you don't miss anything! My card focuses on the January Kit of the Month - To The Moon And Back which is loaded with gorgeous images and amazing sentiments. I used the two adorable snowmen, the journaling box and one of the sentiments.

I coloured in the snowmen with Copics and cut them out. Then I cut out the journaling box and used an X-acto knife to cut a slit across one of the dotted lines. I slid the base of the snowmen inside and taped them in place. Then I sponged over the sentiment and popped it on the journaling box with dimensionals. I used the lovely scrolled border from Be Still to create a pale blue background on the bottom half of the card base before attaching the scene with dimensionals.

Here's a closer look at To The Moon And Back:

If you're already a Kit Club member, you'll be receiving bonus chipboard letters from Cosmo Cricket with your January Kit! If you'd love to have the January Kit, visit the Unity Store HERE for information on how to sign up.
