The Last Unicorn

Welcome to my new follower, Rachelle, the owner of the Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge blog. 

  The Allsorts challenge this week is 'Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes'.  My card is based on the story of The Last Unicorn.
I covered a 7 x 5 card  blank with pink card.  I embossed a piece of the same pink card with a Cuttlebug 'Christmas Stars' embossing folder.  The frame was made with two square wonky stitches dies.  The unicorn is a die I bought on eBay using a snippet of silver, holographic card.  As usual, not much luck in photographing the holographic card! LOL!  I raised the framed image up on foam tape.  I used a Martha Stewart double-edged 'Doily Lace Trim' punch for the panel across the middle and added tiny, punched, holographic stars.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  10. This unicorn is a lovely die and really does look magical using the holographic card Liz and love the wonky stitch square around it, and the pink background and the stars embossing go beautifully. The punched doily lace strip across the middle is a great finishing touch especially with the holographic stars. x

  14. The unicorn is such a delicate die, and the hologram paper was perfect to add just the right touch of shimmering magic to his graceful stride. This is one of my fav MS punches, and you've placed the scallops on each edge perfectly aligned. That is not always easy to do. So pretty! TFS & Hugs

    1. I'll let you into a secret, Mary. The MS punched strip was cut into two pieces so I could easily place the scallops exactly where I wanted them. The image covers up the small gap between the two piece. 😉 xx

  25. Such a pretty card Liz - and the unicorn is beautiful, very magical in the holographic card. And that's a really clever idea to get the punched band perfectly aligned at each end as well.
