Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to 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 had fun using this kit to create a bright and airy card – not what you would expect with such a fall theme kit, right?
Here is this week’s video sharing how this card came together:
While I have often seen strips of cardstock layered on a card front, I thought it would be fun to do something different and add some texture to each strip with a distressing tool. The edge of scissors works fine as well – and doesn’t it add something fun to this card?
Heat embossing the sunflower in white on vellum gives it a totally unique and dreamy effect – not at all what you would typically expect!
While it still has the feel of lots of dimension, it is nice and flat and easy to mail – bonus!
What color combo would you love to try with this technique?
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
