K1-957 - summertime - UNIKO Challenge #48 Reminder

Uniko Studio

Hey! Welcome to the reminder-post for the Uniko July/August 2018 Challenge!

Our current Challenge is a great combination of a sentiment from A.A. Milne: "It's so much more friendly with two." combined with a cute photo. There are many options to be inspired - the colours, the bugs and the young plant.
If you need an extra-inspiration, you may use the optional twist "for a child" - you don't have to use it, but we are excited what you might create for the little people in your life!

Hop to the Uniko Studio Blog to see the original Challenge #48-Post and also the #48 Reminder-Post with all the fabulous cards of the whole DesignTeam and our Guest-Designer Trina P. to get some nice inspiration!

Here is my card:

About this card:
I created a sunflower with my Uniko Mehndi Mandala Stencil and placed it "outside" of a "window".
First I dry embossed the stencil with an extra silicone shim into a piece of vellum. Then I coloured the embossed areas with my Stabilo Markers from the backside, just to avoid any smearing, cause on vellum some markers aren't always as dry as you think they should be...
After fixing the vellum between two layers of frame die-cuts I created with the Stax dies, I added one final "unframed" layer on the bottom, just to avoid to see the green cardbase through the vellum. Then I glued this stack on my cardbase.

With the big sunflower and the die cut  word summer, the front of my card was busy enough, so I decided to add the sentiment on the iside of the card.

In my card the number two is involved several times - although I havn't used a bug stamp:
2 different kind of papers (cardstock and vellum),
2 Uniko products (Mehndi Mandala Stencil & Spring Botanicals - Daffodil Stamp-Set)
2 dies (stitched square and the word summer),
2 times the word-die & 2 stitching lines on the frame-die,
2 ways I used the stencil (dry embossing and colouring),
2 shades of every colour (yellow, orange, green),
2 places with crafting (outside and inside of the card),
2 linings for the sentiment on the inside (black & white)
