Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy that I will be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I’m also using some of the gorgeous new pattern paper that Unity released this past week to create a torn oval window card! This uses the new Rustic Textiles paper pack:
As always, here is this week’s video showing you how I created this card:
This was such a simple and fun technique to get a torn edge – but in a window shape! I was so excited at how well it worked! And these new pattern papers tear like a DREAM!
Heat embossing the image on vellum in white adds such a soft and ethereal effect – I always love heat embossing on vellum when I have the chance.
I die cut an oval in the front of my card so that I had an entire window going through from the front to the back of the card. I mention in the video at the end that I didn’t think about how the foam adhesive from the sentiment on the front showed through the window on the back. I wanted the card to look as nice on the inside as possible, so I grabbed some gold glitter washi tape, trimmed it into thin strips, and used it to cover that adhesive. Adds a fun detail on the inside, and covers my oops all at the same time!
Cutting the sentiment into 3 pieces allowed it to fit along the side, which fit the design of my card better than a long thin strip – great way to customize your sentiments! And the bit of black twine on the bottom was the perfect finishing touch to pull all that black together on the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
