A Rainbow Unicorn Card


I am up on the papermilldirect blog today with a sweet unicorn card.

I have made a bright and colourful unicorn birthday card today. I think it will be lovely for anyone who loves anything magical and bright.

The products I used are:

I also used:

  • Unicorn stamp (Hero Arts)
  • Birthday Greeting (Uniquely Creative Stamps)Out of this world stamp set
  • Oval dies to make a rainbow
  • cloud die
  • Die cutting machine
  • Pink embossing powder (WOW)
  • Copic Markers
  • Nuvo Drops


pmdunTo start with I used a piece of Pale Turquoise Plain Card 240gsm which I trimmed and scored to make my card base. I then cut down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and adhered this onto my base with Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to stamp and colour my unicorn. I trimmed this out and started to make the rainbow.

For the rainbow I used some oval dies and stacked them onto Dark Violet Plain Card 240gsm, Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm, Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm and Daffodil Plain Card 290gsm.

I ran each colour through my die cutting machine and once this was complete I made a rainbow. I adhered them onto some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm and adhered the complete rainbow onto my card. I then die cut some clouds using a piece of Ivory Card Linen 255gsm and added these and my unicorn to the card. I then heat embossed its your birthday greeting onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and adhered this to my card.

To finish the card off I added some nuvo drops but feel free to add extra embellishments if you like.

Thank you for stopping by today!



Pop up unicorn box


I am up on the papermilldirect blog today with this pop up box.

I love making pop up cards and the great thing about this pop up box is that it lies flat so its super easy to post.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Pop up box die (Spellbinders)
  • Unicorn stamps (Hero Arts)
  • Acetate
  • Copic markers
  • Memento ink
  • Heat gun
  • White embossing powder (WOW)
  • Pattern Paper (Paper Addicts)

Pop Up Unicorn

To start with you will need a couple sheets of New Lilac Smooth Card 240gsm to make your pop up box. You will need to adhere all the sides together and the pieces of card that go across the box. I used Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm.

I then stamped and coloured the images onto some White Card Super Smooth 250gsm. I trimmed these out and cut some strips of acetate and adhered the bottom of the acetate along the middle pieces of card in the box. I then adhered the images at the top of the acetate using Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm.

I then cut out four smaller squares of pattern paper and adhered these to the box flaps.

Next I heat embossed the greeting onto a piece of Pompelmo Nettuno Linen Effect Card 280gsm. I adhered this using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

The pop up box is now complete.

This will certainly make someone happy especially when they pull this out of an envelope and it will pop into shape.

Thanks for reading!
