Another Unicorn Birthday Card


I am in a roll on Unicorn Birthday Cards. My 7-year old requested another Unicorn card for his friend in class. Who I am to say no to my sweet boy.  
If you follow my blog, you know that my last post is on a Unicorn card, too. If not, just click the previous post and you will see what I mean. 
I am using the Pink Fresh Studio Magical Unicorn stamp and die sets. I stamped the horn on gold cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet. I used the Misti Stamping Tool to achieve a blended multi-colored horn. The good thing about the oxide inks is that it stays wet long enough to apply embossing powder to it and heat emboss it. I used Judi Kins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. I die cut the horn using the matching die.
I also die cut the ears on gold cardstock. I die cut a brown fun foam and adhered it to the gold die cut ears. I ink blended the a white cardstock and adhered it to the back of the ears.

I die cut the flowers and leaves on white cardstock. I inked these die cuts with the same THDO inks adding Spun Sugar and Antique Linen. I heat embossed the flower centers and the leaf spines using Versamark ink and Judi Kins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder.  I spritz some of the flowers with pearlized water so I can curl the petals. I set this aside to dry. I also die cut some leaves using gold cardstock. 
I die cut a white cardstock panel using a stitched die but I end up trimming off the stitched edges later on. I heat embossed the eyes with Recollections Charcoal embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Simon Says Stamp Jumbo Stripes stamp set. The ink I used is Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. I die cut the recipient’s name using Lawn Fawn Cole's ABC die and a Recollection pink mirror cardstock. I adhered that to the white panel. 

This is when I made a mistake in stamping. I was trying to create a multi-colored background of stars and dots for unicorn. I traced the horn and ears on the white panel to avoid stamping on these areas that will be covered. I did not use the Misti since I am using really small stamps. The first attempt I made was a fail. I did not made a good star impression. I tried re-stamping it by lining the stamp with the stamped image but I messed it up some more. I did not want to put this panel to waste after all the work. I trimmed off the stitched edges and trimmed off a part of the top. I adhered the horns, ears, flowers and leaves to this panel. I also added flower sequins and Nuvo drops on some of the flower sequin centers.
On a top folding A2 white note card, I traced the top part of the unicorn panel. I stamped the stars and dots to this area using the same color combination. I adhered the unicorn panel to this note card. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
