Something fun and different.  I don’t normally use layouts to design a card from…this time I used the sketch inspiration from the Unity Be Inspired Challenge.


  1. Card Base:  Neenah Metallic – Copper, A2.  Opposing corners chomped.
  2. The ivory background pieces are watercolor paper.  I put Distress Ink (Corduroy, Honey, and Shutters) on a stencil, sprayed water, and then pressed the stencil on the paper.  Opposing corners chomped.
  3. Bird:  Unity Stamp, inked with DI – Corduroy.  Pop dots give this dimension.
  4. Pearl:  3 flat back
