I think unicorns are making a come back from the 70's. This makes me happy....love rainbows, hearts and unicorns. I guess I'm still a little girl in spirit. Avery Elle has a delightful unicorn stamp set and matching die set which when paired with Doodlebug Designs 12x12 magical unicorns double sided card stock made this fantasy step card.
This side view shows the folds of the step card that was easily die cut using the Sizzix die shown in a previous post. The unicorn print on the card stock was so pretty I didn't want to cover it up. I chose to cut the inner panels from gold flecked vellum so the design shows but makes a softer background for the unicorns and rainbows. The sentiments from the Avery Elle stamp sets were stamped in gold and heat embossed with NUVO gold embossing powder (available at HM Ben Franklin Crafts).
Here is a close up of the glittered unicorns. I used Glossy Accents (Ranger) as the adhesive for the Martha Stewart (tinsel) and Queen & Co (pixie dust) glitters. The clouds were decorated with MS glitter flocking but sadly the photos don't show this textured effect. The rainbows were colored with Prismacolor pencils (form HM Ben Franklin Crafts) and then covered over with Glossy accents before die cutting.
I hope that this card made you smile and remember the sweet days of your youth. Let's encourage a new generation to believe in beautiful, magical images. Craft some smiles today!
