Uniko - Happy 5th Birthday ....

.... Hello! Today is Uniko's 5th Birthday! We are celebrating with a Birthday Card Link Up Party! And, as it's a party, there'll be prizes too, but more of that later. Here's the card I made to celebrate Uniko's 5th birthday:

Stamps: Uniko - Simply Said Birthday, Big & Bold Wish, Background Builders Chevrons, Explosion!
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Pool Party; Clear Embossing Powder; Spectrum Noir Sparkle - Clear; Copics


I like making cards for men, so I've opted for blues on my card, although I think it would work in reds and pinks too. I've used a few challenges in the making of this card:

I used my MISTI to create the chevron panel - this tool really makes it easy to line up the stamp perfectly each time. I stamped the large word wish at the bottom of the panel in black and embossed it with clear powder. On a scrap of white card I stamped the large explosion image which I embossed with clear powder. I stamped some words in the explosion and then carefully cut it out. I added some sparkle to the edge of the cut out image and used dimensional gel to adhere it to the card.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale blue card and on the white panel added a birthday greeting and some candles.

Fab lining up of all those chevron! Maybe I need to look into a Misti!! X

Wonderful alignment of the chevrons Deborah. Fabulous colour choices and yes it would look brilliant in pinks or lots of other colours too.

LOVE your colour and stamp choice Deborah :) The MISTI certainly does make building a stamped background a breeze. Thank you so much for being part of Uniko. Hugs Bev x

So impressed with your perfectly aligned chevrons; a charming backdrop for the 'explosion' and bold wish images! The candles inside add such a special touch! Love this, especially since a change in colours/sentiments makes this a most versatile design...

Wow, that background is stamped? It's so accurate I thought it must be patterned paper. You've finally convinced me that I NEED a Misti!
