Sweet Ice Cream, Framed For You, Birthday Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

I thought I'd make another card today using the "Sweet Ice Cream" set. It's such a fun and easy set to play with. I LOVE the larger "Happy Birthday" and "Thank You" words in the set too.  Not too sure why I would make a birthday looking card with the ice cream and then use "thank you" but maybe if it were for thanking someone for a birthday gift?  Not sure. I would definitely use them on a different card. So onto today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Blackberry Bliss.  This is a color I don't use very often. It's pretty but it's very dark. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Ice Cream Corner" 12" x 12" package has some fun darker papers in it. I was glad I was able to use the Blackberry Bliss card stock. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut my DSP 4" x 5-1/4" and taped it to the front of the card.

I cut another piece of the DSP from the same pack at 2-7/8" x 2-3/4". The ice cream cones on the DSP were SO cute. I then cut a 3" x 2-7/8" piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock for the layer.  Before I taped the DSP to the layer, I took the smallest scalloped circle die and cut out a circle from the center of this piece.  Then I taped the card stock and DSP together and I taped it to the front of the card. I tried to center it on the top and both sides.  

Next I cut a 2-3/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and a 2-7/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock for the layer.

The DSP has some fun designs and one of them had lines on it and once punched with the matching punch in the "Sweet Ice Cream" bundle, it looked like a cone.  I taped the cone to the Whisper White piece. I should have moved the cone up about 1/8" so there would be a little white showing but it's still okay the way it is.

I stamped the top part of the ice cream using Highland Heather ink. I punched it out using the matching punch.  Then I added it to the Whisper White panel using Dimensionals.  I set this panel in place using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Framed for You" set and were stamped using Early Espresso ink. They were cut out using the smallest Stitched circle die. I taped it to the scalloped circle die I had cut out and set aside. I set the circle in place using Dimensionals.

I glued on some sprinkles from the "Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles" container.  Aren't they cute?  I am seriously thinking of getting another container of them so I can make shaker cards.  Shaker cards take a whole lot more than what I put on this card.

And for the final thing, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and the card was done.  Cute, isn't it?

Thank you ever SO much for taking your time to see what I created today,                                              Wanda
