I've mentioned my newfound love of all things from the Unity Stamp Company, right? Their stamps are absolutely fabulous!

A couple of days ago, I pulled out their January 2012 Kit of the Month, and picked a few of the stamps that called to me. This was the result:

I started with a piece of pattern paper from the Alla-Prima 6x6 pad. I love the wonderful colors and designs in that pad, and I never know which one to choose! I settled on this one, because the pattern would work with the stamp I'd selected.

From there, I stamped the flower and the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and then masked both in order to add the flower stem without going over the top of either element. I trimmed the cardstock down to the size I wanted, then went around the edges of the panel and paper-pierced them.

I colored the flower using Copic markers and Glitter Markers from Martha Stewart in Basic Spectrum Colors.

I colored the sentiment with Copic markers as well, and then adhered the panel to the front of the card. Finally, I wrapped some twine from my stash around the bottom of the card, and added a cute button from Jillibean Soup's Christmas collection in a matching color.
