Bridal Bloom Blog Hop!


Welcome to a very special blog hop to celebrate a special lady on her special day! This is a bridal shower, blog hop stylee! The sweet Chaitali (of Iron Craft fun fame) suggested that we celebrate the owner of Uniko Studio, Bev's, forthcoming nuptials in this fun way and we, the Uniko Studio DT, jumped on board straight away!

We decided to keep the theme of the blog 'beautiful bridal blooms'. Well you know me and my infatuation with the graphic flower die; me and that die were meant to be together! So it got yet another crank through my Cuttlebug for this special card. :)

I couldn't resist adding a panel of Hawaiian Shores card behind the aperture I cut with the die. Not only does it add a splash of colour to the design, it also symbolises the destination of Bev's wedding: Hawaii! Lucky thing!

tips and tricks
  • I originally wanted to place a mega-sized piece of bling to the centre of my flower but didn't have anything big enough. (Note to self: purchase mega sized bling!) So I gathered a few different sizes of bling and arranged them in this little circular pattern. 
  • To add a bit more depth to the leaves around the flowers I stamped them twice on each side without reinking my stamp (aka Generation Stamping). 
Now this bridal blog hop would mean so much to the bride-to-be herself if you popped on across and left a sweet message for her. And it would be fabulous if you could join in the hop and see what we've created to surprise Bev with:

Uniko Studio Blog (Leave Bev a message here!)
Aimes (You are here!)

Bev, no doubt you are giddy with excitement in the sweet sunshine right now. If you do read this before your big day - I want to wish you and your guy the most wonderful day ever! Sending you big hugs, friend! xxx
