Using Multiple Mediums on a CAS Card Design

When I first seen the “Believe in Unicorns” stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop, I knew it was PERFECT for my daughter! Unicorns are everywhere right now, and that includes my house! At this point I think we are up to 4 unicorn stuffed animals, unicorns on her bed set, two unicorn chairs, and I can’t even count how may unicorns there are on her clothes and jewelry and toys. Needless to say, a unicorn birthday card is a win! But I wanted to make this card sparkle and shine as much as I could, so I used a few different mediums, but still kept the overall design very clean and simple to let the unicorn have the spotlight! You can watch the video tutorial down below!!


Hot Foil Gel is one of my absolute favorite mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop. I love the look of foiling and being able to use it with my stencils is just so much fun! Today I used the gel medium with rainbow foil to add some colorful shine to the unicorn’s horn, mane, and tail!

I also used the Tacky When Dry Medium which is another favorite of mine! You could use this with the foil as well, if you don’t have a laminator, but just know it won’t be as smooth of a result. I added gold glitter to the stars for some added shine! If glitter isn’t your thing, you could try some modeling paste in it’s place!!

One thing I want to mention about using multiple mediums, you really need to plan your card beforehand, especially when using a laminator like I did. Some mediums will need to be put down first and it’s best to find out which order you’ll need to work in before you start your project!
