Friends with Flair ~ Mod Birthday

Just how awesome are Fridays? Most of the time...pretty darn awesome! During the end of tax season...they could be just like any other day...except that it means its time to link up to Friends with Flair over at the Unity Stamp Company blog!

I'm on a roll this year with sending out birthday cards...actually on time! Well, mostly...;-)

So naturally, that means that I need to keep my stash of cards up so that I have one to grab and send! This card is a combination of a couple of the newer Stamp of the Weeks from Unity...I love the way their stamps are so versatile!

I used a book page from a thrift store book to stamp the dress onto...I think it is Korean...I love how it looks, and love to use it...but I'm always a little nervous too, since I have no idea what it says! 

Have you ever picked up a foreign language book to use in your papercrafting?


  • cardstock: Wausau(white), scrap(black)
  • paper: book page
  • stamps: Unity Stamp Company
  • ink: Versafine

Have a great weekend, and thank you for stopping by!

  7. You totally rocked the mono colour scheme, looks great!

  8. This is wonderful, Meredith, except I think that must be an X rated Korean book you picked up! (I'm just kidding -- I have NO idea what it says). I would never had thought of using a foreign language book like that, but I love the look of it!

    1. Ha, ha!!! That's what I'm afraid of!!! There is an English descriptive paragraph in the front...its supposed to be some sort of self-help book...but still...I don't know!

  9. Wow, great idea to recycle a book this way. Really fun design with the SOTW!

  10. Love this card great job with the black and white

  11. Meredith, this is a lovely card!! So much going on in that monochromatic theme. Love it!!
