Sandi MacIver – Stampin with Sandi – A Magical Day for Unicorns
Today’s card share is a Magical Day for Unicorns. What day isn’t magical when unicorns are involved and this plump little fellow is sure to melt any heart.
I created the card by combining two bundles, the Magical Day Bundle and the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle.
In particular I was very excited to see the Sunshine and Rainbows Bundle, for all the beautiful cloud dies in the set which I know I will use with so many other stamps in my stash.
I used the top long one to create the two layers at the bottom of my card, cutting two pieces of Whisper White 3-7/8 x 5-1/8, angled the die cutting and then sponging the edges in Pool Party ink before attaching them.
My rainbow is created in Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight. I know, not your regular rainbow colours but hey, this is my fantasy, haha.
For my little unicorn, the mane and tail are coloured in Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. I used my Smoky Slate Stampin Blends to add a shadow and then blended it with the colour lifter and whoo hoo, there is a die to cut him out in the Magical Mates Framelits set.
The “direct to rubber” technique was used on the sentiment, meaning I coloured with my Stampin-Write Markers directly on the rubber and then stamped it.
The gold stars and Berry Burst Sequins are from the Colour Me Happy Card Kit.
What started this card in the first place is that lovely designer paper in the background.
It’s part of the Myths & Magic Suite on pages 36 and 37 of the Occasions Catalogue, and included in this month’s Host Code Gifts with a qualifying order.
A further idea: you know how children love having their birthday number on their cards?
The Large Number Framelits make it super easy, and cutting them out in the coordinating GLIMMER PAPER (page 37), would be the icing on the cake!
