Uniquely Unity ~ A Friend Like You Card

Today, I am up on the Unity blog with this project using the new Uniquely Unity membership kit for November 2017.


Sentiment:  A special friend like you is a gift.

This is perfect for a friend for lots of occasions like birthday, thank you and more.
I thought she looked perfect for a bright and cheerful floral pattern.

This card incorporates patterned paper, die-cuts, Copic coloring and a touch of glitter.

I made a quick tip video for this girl card.


I have been showing how I color in the stamps, because sometimes when I have skipped that particular step, I would get requests to see how it was done.  These are quick tip videos and so, the process shows quick techniques at a faster pace than the actual live process.
Feel free to request a particular technique or style for an upcoming video.


Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. A Friend Like You Uniquely Unity kit for November 2017, Copic markers, dies by My Creative Time and Simon Says Stamp, BasicGrey paper, glitter glue, foam tape and twine.
