Sweet Ice Cream, Blossoms in Bloom, Art Gallery, Birthday Card

I took out my "Sweet Ice Cream" set today and then looked on Pinterest for a cute card to make with it.  I ran across this one but the link was a dead end so here's how I made the card. You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I didn't have enough Purple Posy card stock to make a full card with it, so I just cut it down and used Basic White card stock for the base.  It's a great way to make that card you like with limited supplies.

I cut the Purple Posy card stock 4" x 5-1/4" and taped it to the card base.

What is fun about a layout like this is that you can use scraps and make them work. My scrap Designer Series Paper (DSP) measured 2-1/2" x 4".  It looked pretty close to the size of the DSP on the original card so I just went with it.  I also cut a 4-1/8" x 2-5/8" piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock for the layer. I taped the DSP to the gorgeous Grape piece and set it aside.

I stamped the cone using Cajun Craze ink that was stamped off once.  I'm guessing that Spiced Cider ink was used but I didn't buy the in-colors so I needed to work with what I had. I uses Early Espresso for the lines on the cone. I punched it out using the matching punch.

The cone was stamped using Highland Heather that was stamped off once. My Highland Heather sees a bit dark so to make it match or closely match the Purple Posy I stamped off once. Then I took the sprinkles image and Early Espresso ink and stamped it on the ice cream. And I punched out that piece too. I glued the ice cream top to the cone and set it aside.

The words are from the "Blossoms in Bloom" set and were stamped using Early Espresso ink. I trimmed the card stock very close to the letters.  The piece was 1/4" when I was done trimming.  I could have cut a 1/4" piece of card stock and stamp on it but I wasn't feeling all that lucky, plus I wasn't sure of the exact size at that point.  I snipped the ends on the words. Then I die cut the layer using the die from the "Art Gallery" bundle. That DSP is from the same "Ice Cream Corner" 12" x 12" package. I taped the words to the die cut piece. 

I die cut the largest oval die using Basic White card stock.  I taped the ice cream cone to it and then glued on some of the fun colored sprinkles. 

I taped the DSP layer onto the front of the card. Then the oval was set in place using Dimensionals. The words were added using Dimensionals only where the piece would touch the oval.  And that was it.

This was a very fun and easy card to make. I am sorry I don't know who designed this card but if you do know, please let me know so I can give them credit. This would be a great card for kids and adults alike.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time today to see this fun card,
