Floating Unicorn -- Star Struck at Crafting with Dragonflies

Our theme this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies is Cards with Stars. I made a Shadowbox card featuring Bugaboo's Unicorn set.

I printed the images on two pieces of printable acetate. I also printed the rainbow, stars, and unicorn on regular cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, fussy cut them & glued them onto the acetate. I used glitter glue to fill in the clouds, and also on the unicorn's horn & hooves. I added blue glittered flocking to part of it's body. The larger stars are punched from striped paper. The sentiment (freebie from a magazine) is stamped in a bright pink (Lawn Fawn) onto a shiny paper & cut out with a Latina Crafter die. I doodled the frame.

I actually used just one piece of double-sided designer paper for the base. The middle piece is secure by gluing two of the accordion-folded pieces together on each side. The acetate naturally bows but it still closes completely flat. I added a message section on the back; I could have attached the piece to a traditional folded card base, but I wanted to show off the other side of this pretty paper!
