Flora & Fauna Unicorn Trio
Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! You don’t want to miss this magical trio of inspiration by Lara Di Re of Flora and Fauna! Read on for tips, tricks, and supplies! Enjoy!
Hi! This is Lara from Flora and Fauna and we are so excited to be guesting here at Simon Says with some new cards ideas from our latest release. This spring we have been inspired by unicorns, mermaids, rainbows and VW cars.
Our first card features our Life is Magical and Texture 5 clear sets and distress oxide inks in squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, and pickled raspberry sponged across the top of the card. We then stamped our texture 5 large background in Avery Elle’s green celery and the flowers in Versafine Black Oynx. For the unicorn, we used Versafine Black Oynx and then colored it in with a light pink colored pencil and used the Sakura glue pen to apply glue and then glitter to the top of the card. To finish we cut out the unicorn and attached to the card using the wobble spring and stamped our Life is Magical greeting underneath. So fun to watch the unicorn wobble!

For our next card, we used our Texture 5 and Texture 1 sets to create a background with Avery Elle’s conch shell and raspberry inks. We then cut out a mask and used a sponge dauber with Avery Elle’s conch shell and mustard seed ink to create a magical unicorn trail.
To make the trail glossy we spread out glossy accents over the colors and sprinkled glitter on top before it dried. Next, we stamped the unicorn from our Life is Magical set in Versafine Black Oynx and colored it in with a light pink colored pencil, glue, and then glitter. We then cut out the unicorn and attached it with 3D mounting tape and stamped our create your own magic with black ink to complete the card. We love using glitter!
Glitter rainbow card supplies:
Our final card is our Unicorn Bike Slider card featuring our Life is Magical clear set, colorful Distress Oxide ink, and mini star sequins! To make this card we first used Distress Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Cracked Pistachio.and dabbed them onto plastic and then used the Tonic Watercolor brush set to paint a rainbow. We then die cut the slider using Memory Box’s slider die. We stamped the unicorn riding a bike with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and colored in with a light pink colored pencil. To make the flower bouquet we created tiny tissue paper flowers using a tiny circle punch out of pink tissue paper and scrunching it into flower shapes. We attached those using glue and cut and attached the unicorn to the slider die. To complete the card we glued mini star sequins and stamped the create your own magic greeting in black ink.
