Glue it onto the bottom of the card we just made. Trim the edge of the card with the edge punch again.

Next, pick the 3x7cm horn and 3x4cm unicorn ear, trace them onto the top part of the cards. The big horn is right at the middle, and the 2 ears are symmetrically placed at 2 sides. Cut off the upper part outside of the drawn line. We finally got a card in a unicorn head shape.

Trace the small 2x3cm unicorn ear on the pink cardstock and cut out 2 pieces of the same size. We also cut out 2 circles of 3cm diameter from the pink paper as 2 pink cheekbones of the unicorn. Trace the big horn (3x7cm) on glitter paper and cut. Glue 2 small pink ears inside the big ears of the card, and the horn right at its position we just created on the card. Stick 2 pink cheekbones at 2 sides of the purple rectangle.
