Masculine Unicorns(?)

Unicorns are usually associated with fairy tales and therefore little girls, but what about guys who like unicorns? Are they out of luck? Not in my book! Here are three cards that use unicorns images in what I believe to be masculine ways.
The first one is the one from 2008 and actualy uses a photocopy of a unicorns from a book versus a sticker. The surround is made from gold sticker lines and corners (Starform) with a gold text (Stampendous).

The second card is made using a die-cut background (Sizzix - parchment) turned into a 3D image, antiqued with brown ink and mounted on some Florentine paper also edged in brown. The crest, laurel leaf crown and banner are die-cuts (Sizzix - Tim Holtz series). The text and unicorn are stickers (Mrs. Grossman's).

The third card is made using two concentric square gold sticker frames (Starform) mounted on an ivory and aquamarine blue shimering paper (Bazzill Bassics) and then cut out. The larger frame in ivory was mounted directly to the aquamarine blue card. For the smaller aquamarine frame the center part was cut out and then the frame was mounted on ivory paper and finally attached it to the card using raised adhesive dots. The unicorn is a sticker (Mrs. Grossman's) as is the gold text (Stampendous). The faux gems are also stickers (Stampendous Dot Sparklers).
