Sweet Dreams – Unicorn Edition

unicorn-sweet-dreams

Hello, Crafty Friends! I have this super cute card for you today! I incorporated two of my faves into this one… my enthusiastic love for unicorns and my love for easel cards!!

I used Pink and Main’s Magical Unicorn set for the unicorn.

The unicorn was stamped on white cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Then colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol marker in LG5 (body) and marker JG2 (mane). Then for extra detail and depth I shaded with colored pencils 057 (body) and 053 (mane). I also colored the inner ear with 034 color pencil. For the cheeks I shaded with hot pink dry chalk and added highlights with a white gel pen.

For the border strip at the bottom of the card, I cut a strip of bright blue jewel toned cardstock measuring 1.25″ x 5.5″ and layered a strip of polka-dot cardstock measuring 1″x 5.5″. I used my Mega Runner to attach the two strip together as well as attach the ribbon down the center.

I topped with a basic bow and attached both the bow and the button center with 3D lacquer. Then hand drew stitch lines with a white gel pen.

I cut the word “Sweet” twice. Once ,from a light green cardstock, and again from the same striped green cardstock I used to cut the card base. Then I used a glue pen to layer the two die-cut words, offsetting them just a bit , creating a shadow. Again, adding highlight with a white gel pen.

      

I die-cut several clouds from the Sweet Dreams Baby Dies for my unicorn to stand on and shaded them by outlining them first with a blue (Spectrum Noir color pencil 068) and then blending the color out using odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump. I die cut an additional cloud to stamp the word “dreams”, and positioned under the word “Sweet” to read out “Sweet dreams”.

And, here is my finished easel card…

This set has to be hands down my all time favorite to date!! I just can’t get enough of these UNICORNS!!!
