Uniko February Release - Intro Big & Bold Happy

I am delighted to be back as GD for Uniko, most especially as it is their 7th Birthday. For any company to get to 7 years is a huge achievement, and most especially for a small company. My hat is off to Bev and all that she does. Having started a small business last year, it's hard, hard, hard, hard work, but so rewarding!



Today we are introducing Big & Bold Happy, a stamp set with coordinating dies:




I've used the dies that coordinate with the stamp set to add some big & bold writing to this birthday card.


I've die cut the happy word from some scrap cardstock in shiny dark blue and the bigger outline in vellum to add contrast.

The balloon bash stencil was ideal to add something into the corner of the card and I used some distress oxide in mermaid lagoon. The seeing stars stencil I added on top again in mermaid lagoon oxide ink and as it was a second layer, it looks darker - a tip I got from a blog post of Lisa's.
 

The die is so bold and eye catching, it didn't need anything else on it other than the word birthday. Such a useful and quick and easy set - another card for my stash!

Stick around for more sneak peeks this week and definitely release day on 11th. There's a fab blog hop and an amazing prize! Happy crafting everyone!
