Unity Birthday Chic!

I am SO happy to have made my first Unity stamp card! I used Birthday Chic (See http://www.redcardcorner.blogspot.com/p/my-stamps.html):
(The "teal" background is looking a tad blue ... )
I first stamped the sentiment and one of the gift images with embossing ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I shaded the card stock with Tim Holtz Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade. I stamped the main gift image twice. Once on a grey-ish piece of scrap and once on a piece of check scrap paper (love using my scraps!). Both were then cut out. The top image is popped over the bottom one with dimensional foam tape.
I didn't cut out the ribbon on top of the dimensional image but twisted some baker's twine from The Twinery (Honeydew and Butterscotch). I made a separate bow for the top. I love how this came out and the bold and clear image from Unity!
