Hope Today Is All Rainbows & Unicorns
Hello, and happy hump day! Today's card was created for the latest The Paper Players challenge. As you know, I struggle with clean and simple cards but I knew as soon as I saw this challenge that I could make this one happen. My friend Becky gave me a piece of fun cardstock that she had created a fun pattern on using a stencil and some distress oxide inks and a glitter brush. I die cut the panel down into two hearts using a heart die from the Folk Hearts by Essentials by Ellen die set. I then added some black dashed lines around the outer edges of them both. I then stamped and colored the adorable little unicorn from the Greeting Farm's Magical Day stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock and colored the image using my alcohol markers. I fussy cut the unicorn out and popped it up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I cut a panel of white cardstock slightly smaller than my white card base and added some black dashed lines around the outer edge. I then adhered my heart panel directly onto the focal panel and stamped the sentiment and the butterflies from The Greeting Farms Magical Friends stamp set. I popped the whole focal panel up off of the card using some inexpensive fun foam I picked up at Hobby Lobby. To finish my card I added some pretty shimmer and shine to the unicorn's mane and tail and the butterflies using my Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. I loved how adorably this card turned out that I created a second. I hope you like them both and thank you for visiting my blog today!
