Unity and Brutus Monroe Hop + Video

Unity Blog Hop

I’m super excited for today’s blog hop with Unity Stamp Company. We are celebrating the new release of FOUR amazing new backgrounds co-created with Brutus Monroe. That’s right! I am so excited about this collaboration. I have a fun pair of cards to share today using one die cut and the fabulous Hit the Bricks background. 

Assemble This! Video

I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how this card was made. You can watch it below or on Youtube.

The Project

The Details

Don’t you just love a good background stamp? I’m so excited about these new stamps. I’m using the brick background and combined it with the Faith & Hope stamp set. With just one cut, I can get two beautiful cards.

Technically, it is two dies but they are combined together to create just one cut. Then I’m using the pieces to create two beautiful cards. With a bit of shine and color from some green foil cardstock, these cards are so elegant against the brick backdrop. 

The video goes into detail on how these cards were made. Hope you’ll take a moment to watch it. Plus, the cards look so amazing in real life. The photos don’t do them justice. 

Hop List & Prize

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog as you hop with us today for your chance to win one of FOUR Unity Prize Packages worth $100 each. Plus, join us on our INSTAGRAM (@unitystampco) hop as well for an extra entry.
