Post #2 Unity Thursday

If you are here looking for the Flourishes sneak of Lets Have tea, scroll down to the next post



Here are a few cards using some of my favorite new releases from Unity.  Both cards are Get Well Soon cards, maybe because I am under the weather?  Who knows?  Anyhow, both cards are clean and simple or graphic whatever term you like :)  To me a get well card, should be happy and make the receiver feel good and special.  
The first card I used stamps from the Stitched Greetings set, it will make the paper piecer and copic colorer very happy, its line art, so you have lots of options and I like that!  I decided to color the flower in, and what you cannot see because I covered the center with a button, but the stamp center is actually a button.  Does that make sense?  When you stamp the flower, the center looks like a button without having to put a button there lol.  I hope you all understand that :)  

For this card, I used the stamp set Treasure to me.  Its the set with the cute dress and purse with the flowers, vases and cute sentiments...yeah that one.  The base of this card is Prism textured paper...which I love and could use on every card, except I have to hoard it because no store near me sells it...sigh.  To make the card appear not so simple I used a border punch at the bottom of the card to make it a little more interesting.
