Guest Designer Mitsyana Wright

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone has had a great start to their weekend! I am Mitsyana Wright, from Up On Tippy Toes, and I am so excited to be guest designer for Lori Whitlock. I’ve always been a big fan of her unique and whimsical designs. And I am over the moon thrilled to be able to share with you this adorable Unicorn Card I made using her Center Box Card Unicorn.

I’m a card maker and obsessed unicorn lover, so this unicorn card was just up my alley! I started by opening the card file in my electronic cutting machine software. Because Lori Whitlock’s files are SVG format I am able to use them in a number of electronic cutting machines.

When I open the file in my software , all the shapes are grouped together like this…

I like to separate my shapes by like colors. Then I can place several different colored papers down on my cutting mat and cut them all at the same time.

Here are all the pieces for the card cut out…

These pieces go together very easily and you simply adhere them to the card base… this is totally cute as is but I like to add personal touch with shading and more dimension.  I like to add shading with a bit of airbrushing. It’s a great alternative to shading with ink pads and sponges.

After my pieces were all airbrushed I started on building the card…  I folded the card base on the score lines, making the center panel recessed.

For added dimension, I added embossing to these background panels, then distressed the top layer of the embossing off with a sanding block. This exposed the white paper core everywhere the embossing was raised.

Because of the added texture of the embossing, I ran my panels through my sticker makers for maximum adhesion to my card base.

Then attached them to the card base.

 I used a glue pen to piece the smaller parts and pieces together.

I folded the little score lines on the unicorn base and attached them into the inside fold of the card. and then attached the hills over top.

I added highlights with a white gel pen onto the unicorns main and tail, as well as the rainbow.

Then place my sentiment onto the lower left corner.

This card turned out fantastic! My only problem would be which one of my unicorn loving friends to give it to!  Hope you all enjoyed this project!!  Have a MAGICAL day!!

Happy Day Fabric by Lori Whitlock

 

Hi Everyone! I’m so excited to be the next stop on my blog tour for my new Happy Day fabric collection from Riley Blake! As you know, my work is typically whimsical, fun, and cheerful. This fabric is no exception! This collection is made up of a gorgeous floral, whimsical butterflies, kites, sunshine and lemonade. I simply love this collection, as it reminds me of spring and summer, my favorite seasons!

This fabric collection was inspired by my paper collection that is available in craft stores called Happy Summer. So, if you’re looking for coordinating paper you’re in luck!

Here’s a sweet baby quilt using the Happy Day fabric.
