Vera Lane Studio: Unicorn Shaker

Hello, crafty friends!

Today I'm sharing a DT project for Vera Lane Studio.

There is a new VLS release today: Unicorns and Pegasus ... how magical!

I love unicorn's expression! Doesn't he look cheeky?

I made a 6 x 6 inch tent card.

I used a wooden frame, heat embossed with holographic embossing powder, to house the shaker element. Acetate was taped to the underside of the frame and foam tape trimmed to attach the frame to the cloudy paper. I haven't quite mastered the technique of getting the stickiness off the tape edges, so some of the sequins tend to stick to the sides :(

My unicorn is coloured with alcohol markers and has Glossy Accent eyes to make them shine and he has glitter in his mane, tail and along his horn.

I felt that my monochromatic unicorn card needed plenty bling, so I found some silver mesh which I cut into strips.

The unicorn was adhered to the outside of the shaker box using a double layer of foam pads over the acetate and ordinary tacky glue over the frame.

You can see the dimension to the shaker card below:
