My little niece will celebrate her 7th birthday very soon and I had to get some inspiration for an unicorn loving little one. So The decision for the cute “Fairy Tale Unicorns” set from Clearly Besotted was the easy part, the rest of the design a bit more tricky. She loves pink, but only pink clothes, no pink things except stuffed animals. So, no traditional girly card needed. I got some inspiration from Pinterest.
I used the “Dragon Wishes” from Mama Elephant as sentiment, because it fits so well. The little unicorns got some pastel colours with my Copic Markers and of course some sparkle with the platinum coloured Stickles, which I used with a thick layer to get solid glitter on the critter and fitting for the Crafty Animals challenge.
The clouds are from MFT with some no name dies I have like for ages (and no brand names, they had one before I lost the packages) and got a bit “tumbled glass” Distress Ink on them. The background and the playing unicorns fit the AAA cards challenge “on the move” quite well.
I cut out one if my Crealies stitched circle dies and used a piece of vellum for a softer look (the circle was a bit big so I needed some filling for the card design). At first I wanted to add the little falling star on my card as well, but thought it could be a little crowded and choose against it. It is not a traditional birthday card and a friendship card would be another really good theme for this one. Perfect for the Papercraft challenge.
