With love - |Unicorn in silhouette on fancy background A5 card

Posted on


Hi Craft addicts!

Today's handmade card is one I really enjoyed making as it combines a mix of dies, stamps, papers and Distress Crayons (for the background).

GC 2019 - Love and Friendship - Unicorn in silhouette on ornate frame and c

How I made this card:-

  • I had cut out the fancy background mat and layer (from a Die set by Paper Boutique, Creative Crafting World) in an ivory/cream colour for the mat and Kraft card for the layer.
  • I glued them together using some PVA glue and put it aside until I had finished all the other things!
  • I cut a panel of the brown and cream checked striped paper (to be honest I can't remember where it came from) to fit the front of an A5 card and stuck it down using PVA glue.
  • I cut a strip of brown paper (from the Browns Colour Families 8" paper pad) and glued it to the bottom of an A5 card which I had used on its' side.
  • I then cut a scalloped circle (to fit inside the frame) in black card (Lynda Chapman's World of Paper) and another slightly smaller one in white card and glued them together.
  • I also cut out the  Unicorn in silhouette in black card (it is a Crafter's Companion die) and placed it over a panel of hand coloured card which I had made previously using Tim Holtz Distress Crayons (the pastel shades). 
  • I cut around it trying to keep as close to the edge as possible.
  • I then stuck the Ornate frame on to the front of the card again using PVA glue and then added the black and white circles to that.
  • I added the Unicorn topper to the card, this time using foam pads as I wanted to have some dimension to it.
  • I also stamped the With Love sentiment from a collection by Hunkydory's For the Love of Stamps in black - it is in two parts - the scroll and sentiment) and I used Gina K's Black Amalgam ink to do this. When it was dry I stuck it to the bottom of the card in the middle.
  • Finally, I added 3 drops of Black Nuvo drops (from Tonic Studios) on either side of the sentiment and on some of the ornate frame.
