Revisiting Big n Bold Wish, Blog Hop and Giveaway at Uniko

Good morning Uniko fans, its time to give a little love to a previously released stamp set.
This month the set we are revisiting is the Big and Bold stamp set and matching dies.
Here's my inspiration for you.


I've used the candles, 'Make a' and 'wish' stamps together with both the matching wish dies.
It's another idea sparked by too much You Tube watching earlier in the year!
Always on the look out for a different card idea I stumbled on this idea by the very creative Jennifer McGuire, a double Z fold card

So apologies for the next few paragraphs, hope you can follow all the instructions!

To start I cut a panel of bright blue card measuring 5"x 10" and scored it at 21/2" and 5", followed by
a second piece of white card cut at 4" x 9", scored at 4" and 61/2".
The blue panel was then stencilled using the Confetti stencil and a contrasting blue ink then put to one side to dry.
On the white panel a line of candles was stamped along the bottom of the large square section in Versamark and embossed with white EP, before colouring with my Zig water brush pens.

When dry, I stamped this greeting from Birthday Wishes in black on the middle panel, the last panel was kept blank for a handwritten greeting.


From a scrap of vellum I cut the largest of the wish dies and from a scrap the same blue card as the background, I cut out the second size wish. Placing the leftover outer from the blue in my MISTI, I positioned the 'wish' stamp in the space and then closed the MISTI door. The blue wish die cut was then placed back into the outer and stamped with Versamark and embossed with white EP. I find this the best way to ensure that the stamping is centred on the die cut. 
After gluing the two layers together I attached them above the candles and stamped the 'Make a' in black.

To complete, 2 panels of silver mirror card were cut measuring 41/4" by 21/8" and 4/1/4" square.
The small panel was glued to the top small blue section and the larger to the large blue square section.
The white section was attached, large square section to small silver one and small white to large silver.
