Glitter Unicorn Card

Sometimes I feel simple is best in card making. This simple card design relies on glimmer, shine and glitter and really shows off this adorable unicorn SVG file.  I made this magical card using this week's new SVG release from Sanqunetti Design - Unicorn SVG.

Glitter Unicorn Card designed by Janet Packer on CraftingQuine Blog. File from Sanqunetti Design.

The only additions I made to the unicorn design are the child's name and the cloud/rainbow element from this Rainbow Sloth card.

Supplies Used

Silhouette Cameo® and Colour Printer
6" circular card blank (cut on Silhouette Cameo®)
Off-White Pearl/Glimmer Paper (printable)
White heavy-weight Cardstock
Silver Glitter Paper (for the rainbow)
Double-sided Adhesive Paper (apply over mane, tail & star)
Semi-opaque Glitter (applied to the adhesive paper)
Black Vinyl (unicorn's features)
Silver Brushed-metal Vinyl (for name and horn stripes)
Grey Marker (or scrap of grey paper for the horn)
Card adhesive
Dimensional adhesive pads

I cut the majority of the unicorn pieces using the Silhouette's Print and Cut facility and then paper-pieced it, added the glitter (on machine cut pieces of double-sided adhesive), and then vinyl, and finally popped it up on dimensional adhesive pads.

The Unicorn cutting file is available from the Sanqunetti Design website and at Judy's Etsy store.

I made several versions of the card, but I really like this one, the simplest, best of all.
