Unicorn and Rainbow Pop Up Card + Video



Unicorns, rainbows AND a pop up!  How cool is that?

I have to tell on myself.  When I was designing this card, I could not figure out the pop up part.  I glued the tabs to the rainbow and glued it to the card and 


IT. WOULD. NOT. POP. UP!


I took it off and put it on about four million times.  Pulling my hair out ensued.  While that may be a slight exaggeration, it was still frustrating.


Then an accident happened.  I got the angle right and it popped up!  Who knew an angle could be so important.  If you're thinking that I should have known, I bet you're a math genius or an engineer.  Or at least it makes me feel better to think so!



As long as it took me to figure out, this was still a fun card.  And now I know how important that angle really is.



The background on this card is made with Copic inks.  I used my refills and a small paintbrush.  I really like the subtle color.  



Here's the video on the unicorn rainbow pop-up card (including that all important angle):





Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Aww these are some of the best unicorns I've seen and I love the subtle colours you've chosen, much prettier than the heavy primary colours normally used. I know it's frustrating getting something to work but your perseverance paid off because it's just gorgeous x

  3. Wow! What a great card. So cute and whimsical. I think most of us have experienced that aggravation factor. It does make you want to pull out some hair. Glad you got the angle figured out because it was worth it.
