Majestic Unicorn

Sometimes, we just need to quietly remind our friends that they are majestic. And sometimes, they need a glittery card with a rainbow unicorn!

Rainbow unicorn on glitter background freakin majestic card

I originally tried creating this fun card with only black and white to let the rainbow unicorn stand out, but it didn’t have the bold look I was trying for. Of course this card needed glitter! So I whipped out a few colors of glitter paper, and the blue really made me smile, as I hope this card does for you.

What pops in real life but my camera had a hard time capturing are the gold stickles on the horn.ย I stamped the sentiment (so perfect!!) and heat embossed with a matching blue glitter.

I’m playing along with these challenges:

I don’t know if I’ll ever not be excited for unicorns! The Lisa Frank epidemic of my childhood also reminds me that OF COURSE they have rainbow manes. Is there something fun from your childhood that keeps popping up in your crafting? Let me know below in the comments– I’d love to hear about it!!

Window Wedding Card — From Basic to Extra!

Hey Crafties!! How about a quick wedding card today? Some pastels and some delicate vellum pair nicely with an embossed wedding dress. But the window takes the card from basic to extra.

Wedding Window Card

Supplies:

How-to:

  1. Cut your cardstock.
    1. Pinkย 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ for cardbase. Scrap (1″ x 3/4″) for sentiment on front
    2. Very Vanilla 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside, 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ for the window frame
    3. Vellum 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the front
  2. Fold your 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ pink cardstock in half.
  3. STAMP!
    1. On the inside Vanilla piece, stamp the wedding dress with versamark and sprinkle with gold embossing powder. Heat until it melts.
    2. Using blushing bride ink, stamp the inside sentiment below the dress.
    3. On the small pink scrap, stamp “congratulations” with versamark ink and sprinkle with gold embossing powder. Heat until it melts.
  4. To create the window:
    1. Place (but don’t adhere yet) your vellum AND the small vanilla piece towards the top top of the pink front (card open!).ย Using the 2nd largest Stitched Shapes Framelits, run these 3 layers through your machine to cut the windows.
    2. Take the small vanilla piece again and run it through your machine again with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits. This creates the frame for the window.
  5. Dry emboss your vellum.
    1. Adhere the ribbon around the front of the vellum.
    2. Adhere your Congratulations sentiment on top of the ribbon.
  6. Adhere your pieces!
    1. Adhere the vanilla piece with the dress to the inside.
    2. Adhere the embossed vellum to the front using glue dots. Be careful to line up the windows.
    3. Adhere the vanilla window frame over the vellum.
