Welcome to my first official post as part of the Uniko Design Team! I’m here to tell you about challenge #65 that goes live today and the theme is ‘Anything Goes’ with the optional twist of using die cuts.
As always there is a generous prize for the winner chosen by the Design Team as well as Uniko loyalty points for the top three. There are extra prizes for randomly drawn winners who chose to use the optional twist and those who used Uniko products. The challenge is open until 25th June so there’s plenty of time to join in!
For my card I used one of my favourite Uniko products, Beautiful Blooms I stamp set and coordinating dies. I started off by cutting the small bloom into a triangle of white card stock followed by cutting the two leaves either side. I then used this as a stamping guide by laying it over another triangle of white card and lining up the small bloom. I removed the die cut triangle before stamping the bloom in fuchsia. I covered the bloom with a mask (stamped onto a sticky note and fussy cut for closest trim to edge) and replaced the die cut triangle to help line up the leaves. I removed the die cut triangle again but left the mask in place and stamped the leaves. Then it was just a case of layering the stamped triangle onto teal and fuchsia card and adhering to the bottom right corner of the card front. I used foam pads to attached the die cut triangle over the stamped triangle. For the top left corner I stamped the Uniko Sentiments Outlined stamp in teal onto a white triangle which I layered onto teal and fuchsia card stock.
Here is a close up of the bottom corner so you can see the dimension and the die cutting.
It wasn’t until I had completed my card that I realised I had used the Uniko brand colours!
