White unicorn in a snow storm


It's been a hectic few days, with too much work, sitting stuck in traffic and too little time in the good ol' crafting room. But last night I was left alone all night as the Culinary Consultant was out galavanting with his colleagues, so I thought I would make the most of the time and spent some quality time with my stamps and inks. I really wanted to play along with this week's Lawnscaping challenge where the theme is White on White. I thought this was the perfect challenge to combine with this week's Colour Me...! challenge where the colours are white and grey. I also absolutely loved the new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used a star die to cut the window in the card, and adhered vellum to the reverse side. I stamped the unicorn in grey, and cut it with the matching die. I stamped snowflakes in Versamark to the background and embossed using a glitter embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment and some more snowflakes in grey and cut in the shape of a banner. I adhered the unicorn onto the vellum and added glitter to the mane and tail. Last I added the sentiment banner using foam pads for dimension. This is one of those rare cards that turned out just like I wanted it. Very white, a bit glittery and a slightly different Christmas card. 

Card: Leonardo Stationery 300 gsm white card, Dovecraft 110 gsm premium vellum
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After, Critters in the Arctic
Ink: Tsukineko Versamark, Stampin' Up Smoky Slate
Other: Xcut star dies, Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After dies, Papermania Holographic embossing powder, Ranger Ice Stickles Crystal Ice
