Yup, today is the day. I'm extremely happy to have had this incredible opportunity to design for such an amazing company. These past two months have been insane but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Unity has given me so much and I'm very thankful for all the fans, followers and friends alike who have supported me and cheered me on! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My first card uses the lovely tall flower image from To the Moon & Back, paired with a sentiment from She Did It Anyway. Sometimes I just need to make an easy one-layer card! ;) My Copics were also begging to be used and I added some sparkle to the "pixie dust" for visual interest.
This second card took me weeks to finish but not because it was labour intensive. I actually had the frame stamped and ready to go three weeks ago and forgot all about it. This is the same frame from Breathless that I featured twice last Monday without the sentiment in the centre! Versatile? Most definitely.
The background was created using Giving It All Meaning and the floral-text border from To the Moon & Back. While creating this card, I discovered that fussy-cutting two layers of acetate at the same time is much easier than fussy-cutting one layer of cardstock! Imagine that.
This last card uses one of my favourite Unity stamps of all time, the damask from Happily Ever After. I absolutely love using this image to create my own patterned paper (which you can see here, here, here, here and here). The focal sentiment is from When I Am With You and I framed it with whimsical red stitches and torn edges which are also sponged.
