Sparkly Unicorn

September happens to be my Mom’s birthday month and I wanted to make her a special card.

I found this Unicorn Hug Gift Card holder from the Silhouette Design store that I had acquired at some time and I thought it would be perfect. I had purchased a couple pairs of earrings from Mags Bonham at our TJC Curio Intensive Retreat last weekend and thought I could slip them inside the gift card pocket.

I created this card using the following supplies:
Unicorn Hug Gift Card Holder by Jennifer Rush from the Silhouette Design Store
CTMH Cardstock – White & Pixie
CTMH Pink Glitter Cardstock – retired (but they have other new colors)
CTMH Dual Action Glue Pen Z553
CTMH Stamp sets: Birthday Sparkles (B1537) and Happy Heart (A1192)
CTMH Bitty Sparkles Z1263
CTMH Archival Black Ink, Bashful Ink, Raspberry Ink, Blossom Ink
CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush Z3293
**All CTMH products can be found on my website HERE

This was a very simple card to cut & put together. You can read more of the instructions on how to put it together on the designer, Jennifer Rush’s blog HERE.

This is definitely a card that I could create again!

Little Dreamer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Little Dreamer Blog Hop!
We will be showcasing items from our new Seasonal Expressions II catalog with various projects created by talented Close to My Heart consultants.
If you are visiting from Gerri’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start at the beginning with our hostess Carol.

I loved playing with this Little Dreamer kit and made several cards from it, but one of my favorites is this one.
I was inspired by another card I saw on Pinterest and I had to tweak it to fit on my folded card.
Pinterest is my #1 go to for inspiration and learning new techniques.
You can find my CTMH Pinterest board HERE, where I save anything I see that is created with CTMH products.



I love creating this folded card.
With just a few score lines, you can create a card that WOWs!

I used the Little Dreamer Paper Pack, Little Dreamer Coordinating Cardstock, Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts, the Marvy Journaling pen and the Clear Shimmer Brush to create this folded card.
You can find all the supplies on my website at

Each month I create a card kit, with 4 different designs using a current paper pack & stamp set. For June’s kit, I used the Little Dreamer coordinating supplies.
You can find more information on my kits HERE.


If you have not started at the beginning, you can swing on over to Carol’s blog where it starts for more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!
