It’s time for another post on the Unity Blog and today I am sharing an artist trading card with a matching envelope. The Accept, Let Go, Have Faith stamp set that released last week inspired me to make this set. Be sure to check it out along with the awesome new releases that dropped last week at Unity Stamp Company. Standard ATCs are 2.5″ X 3.5″ in size. So I started with a pieces of watercolor paper cut to size. I embossed it using a Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder and ink blended to create the base of the ATC. Then I stamped and watercolored the butterfly image using Lindy’s Magicals on a piece of watercolor paper. Next, I stamped another sentiment from Dreamin’Daze and cut it into a little fishtail banner. I added a piece of lace for layering and attached everything on my ATC base using my sewing machine. I went around the ATC edges with distress inks to increase the grunge factor. I stamped the Wings and Petals Ledger on some glassine paper and die cut it to make the envelope. I created little ephemera using stamps from Soul Mail and the sentiment from Accept, Let go, Have faith to decorate the envelope. Finally, I added some twine with a butterfly charm to make a wrap around closure. Visit me on Instagram to see my reel showing how this works.
