Welcome! Did you get to do the Unity Hip HOP yesterday? If you've never done one, you should! There's so much great inspiration from the design team, and there's also a chance each week to win some Unity goodness! Just start at the Unity blog and the next blog will have a link to click for the next one. Then head over to the Unity forum on SCS to chat away and get in on some more chances to win some Unity!
Today I'm sharing with you a 6x6 thank you card using Unity's Dream Tree and Just Plain Gratitude stamps. If you look closely, you can see some details that are subtle, but I love them. I started with a brown card base, then layered over that a piece of kraft cardstock that I watermarked with the gratitude stamp. Then I stamped gratitude again in brown. On some parchment paper, I used the same brown ink to stamp the dream tree and glued it onto the front.
On the inside, I used the same parchment and kraft, but this time I just stamped gratitude in brown ink and adhered the kraft to the bottom. Can you recognize the pattern on the kraft inside the card? It's the swirly part of the dream tree that I watermarked!
The envelope carries over the same theme. Gratitude is watermarked on the kraft paper envelope, and more of the brown cardstock base forms the flap on the envelope. If you look closely, you'll see the swirly part of the dream tree watermarked on the the flap, too!
I had never done watermarking before, but I really like the end result! Thanks for stopping by for a look; make sure you visit the other gals showing off their Unity! You can get a list of all the links on the Unity blog.
