Card Challenge

I’ve been a bit slack on the card-making front lately so decided to make a few and looked to see what challenges were going on for inspiration.

I’ve used some colours from the Seven Hills Craft Challenge and the theme of ‘Kid’s Birthday’ from the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge.

Here’s what I came up with:-



I rounded the corners on the card and another smaller piece of card which I then coloured using Distress Inks. I used the unicorn stamp from Reverse Confetti’s Unicorn Wishes set and coloured it in using Promarkers. I don’t have the matching dies so hand-cut it out and stuck it on to the card along with some small die-cut clouds (I used foam squares on a couple of them to make them stand out)

I die cut some balloons from sparkly card and stuck these on with foam squares, adding coloured twine which I secured using some silver washi tape. 

I stamped some black ‘chalkboard’ labels using a sentiment from the Unicorn Wishes set and heat embossed using bright violet powder.

To finish the card off I used some star sequins and pastel-coloured sequins. I also went over the unicorn’s ears & horn along with the clouds using my Wink of Stella clear pen to give them some sparkle.


I made a few of these cards in various colours:-


I like how they all turned out 🙂

  1. I love Unicorns and all these dies create a wonderful scene. The Glitter balloons are also very eyecatching. Kids will surely love this card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper. Carolyn xx
