Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Hippo & Friends Dies

At Card & (Your) Cuppa, I regularly ask the attendees to suggest projects they would like to make.

One of the recent responses has been a unicorn. So for last week’s card, we entered into a fantasy world.

All of the pieces are cut using the Hippo & Friends Dies, apart from the sentiment.

Quite a number of colours, Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam make an appearance in this project. I wanted it to be colourful, yet not too brash.

As the unicorn horn is a rather fiddly piece, wet glue was my preferred choice for sticking it to the body. It’s easier, and less messy, to pop some glue on the body, then add the horn.

This is then repeated for the balloon string.

With the layers stuck together with the unicorn on top, it was time to finish the project.

I chose to use the sentiment from the co-ordinating Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink. The end is shaped using the Banners Pick a Punch.

The large piece, with the unicorn on top, is attached using Dimensionals to raise it off the page. Another Mini Dimensional attaches the balloon.

Three flowers, coloured with Wink of Stella are then scattered around using Glue Dots.

Finally, a tiny Gold Glitter Enamel Dot creates the eye and adds a touch more sparkle.

There aren’t many more Card & (Your) Cuppa sessions left for 2020, so make sure you book your place to join me. Head to my Class Timetable for full details.

Happy crafting
