Today I have a Unicorn Shaker Card for The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge design team. The theme was “favorites” and I was able to incorporate several of my favorites.
- Bright Colors
- Simple Design
- Shakers (which I love, even though I realized I do surprisingly few of them)
- It also incorporates fun folds, which I also love and didn’t even realize is also included until I was typing this.
The main image was provided to me by Scribbles designs and is the cute but funky and fun unicorn. It’s listed as Unicorn 3 on their website and is $3 for the digi.
How I made it:
I printed the digital image out on a clear plastic sheet which made for an easy shaker card. The card itself is a die-cut easel card from colorful paper. (The paper is from Spellbinders and is no longer available) I cut an oval for the unicorn shaker and added the clear plastic as the front.
I also added a simple “thanks” stamp on a scrap of paper (that stripe is the back of the green polka dot, it’s a double-sided paper) and also cut a scrap from the die-cut and glued it to the top. The top mirrors the scalloped edge that the die puts at the bottom (because it’s the remainder of the same piece!)
The card itself is an easel and is done in two parts. So when gluing the parts together I added the shaker ingredients, glitter in pink, white, and blue.
The card folds flat for mailing and putting in the envelope and then has flaps that fold out to help it stand up. (As shown below) The die is from Artful Impressions, but I don’t think it’s still available. I can’t find it on their website. I got it used from Scrap B-More so I’m not sure when it was sold. The packaging doesn’t match their current stuff, so it may be kinda old. It’s a fantastic die if you can snag it somewhere!
