This is my last Growing in Unity day, and it's been a really fun week! I've loved hearing from so many new people -- thanks for stopping by! Today, I have a whole set of cards to share:
It all began with this card here:
This one just so happens to be a publication reject -- I think I submitted it for two or three different calls, actually. I guess I like it better than the editors, though, so here it is! I decided it needed a friend:
Same design, different details. And here's another:
Ooh, I flipped the design! And then I needed one more, a vertical format, just for kicks:
I might re-make this one with the sentiment positioned higher, but you get the idea. Anyone else have a tough time getting good photos of side-folded cards -- or anyone have tips out there?
All four cards use sentiments from Unity's fabulous She did it Anyway (a Melody Ross co-branded set) and I think they'll make a lovely little gift sometime in the future. Encouragement cards can be hard to make without going hokey, y'know? I think these would do the trick for me.
Each card follows the same pattern: a stamped sentiment (thank goodness for the stamp-a-ma-jig!)with negative die-cut images popped up on a white A2 background. All the colors are Paptertrey Ink -- in the order of the photos: aqua mist, raspberry fizz, sweet blush, and hawaiian shores. The dies are PTI, too, except for the last one -- the swallows are from Amuse Studio. Ink is Basic Gray from Stampin' Up. If die-cutting isn't your thing, punches would do the trick, or any of the great images from this set would fit in just fine instead.
Don't forget: comment every day this week for a chance to win your choice of the following Unity sets:
I'll use our friend the random number generator to choose a winner Saturday -- everyone who posts a comment by midnight Eastern time tonight (Friday) will be counted. Good luck, and I hope to see you next week...I might not post daily (whew!), but I'll have some awesome Amy Tangerine projects to share -- oh, how I love that line! I feel so lucky to have some of it in my possession before it hits stores!
Have a lovely day!
