Unity in the Twilight

I joined a Twilight swap at SCS, and these are the cards I made (and shipped off today). Sorry for the awful pics...something about the combo of all the black and the embossing and the rhinestones wigged out the camera, so they're VERY washed-out.

I started with a 4 1/4"x 11" card base in Riding Hood Red, folded to make an A2 sized card. On top of that I layered a panel of 4" x 5 1/4" textured black card stock, then a 3 7/8" x 2 1/8" panel of DP and a 3 7/8" x 3" panel of textured black card stock that was stamped with Royal Day and heat embossed with clear EP. I tied a piece of 5/8" black grosgrain around the layered panel before adhering it to the card base. To finish off the Twilight-y goodness, I stamped 'together forever' from Unity's January KOTM onto a piece of Riding Hood Red CS, rounded the corners, adhered it to a scrap of textured black CS, and then adhered both to the case base with foam tape. Three little self-adhesive rhinestones completed the card...
I hope my swap group enjoys them! It's not a literal translation of the books, but more an interpretation of the romance and black, red and white color scheme of the covers.

I'll be back with more, including the USC card I made for yesterday's Unity Addicts challenge, MOPS projects, and CHA PHOTOS! *wink*
