Sweet Ice Cream, Birthday Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I have not played with the "Sweet Ice Cream" set in a while and I saw this card on Pinterest and it made the decision for me on what card to make for today! You can see the original card here. There's a few minor changes that are mostly due to not having the same products, but it's close.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut the sheet of card stock in half on the short side so this piece measured 4-1/4" x 11" before I folded it in half at 5-1/2".  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

I cut two 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Ice Cream Corner" 12" x 12" package. I taped one piece to the top of the card and one piece to the bottom.

Then I cut two 1/2" x 4-1/4" pieces of Rich Razzleberry card stock for the strips that will go under the center piece of DSP.  That piece is from the same "Ice Cream Corner" package and it was cut at 3-5/8" x 4-1/4".  The Rich Razzleberry strips were taped to the DSP. I put the tape on the DSP and then added the card stock strips. That way you don't have to try not to get too much tape over the edge that will show.  This piece was taped to the front of the card. I measured a little over 1-7/8" from the top of the card. It was difficult to get it equal on the top and bottom but it's close enough that no one will notice unless they get a ruler out, and who does that to a card they receive?  Well, I guess I have but only to get measurements to make one myself, but never to be critical!  

I didn't have the circle dies that were used so I got out my retired stitched circle dies and used the largest one for the Rich  Razzleberry circle and I used the 2-7/16" circle die for the Basic White piece.  But I stamped the words from the "Sweet Ice Cream" set and were stamped using Rich Razzleberry ink before I die cut the circle.  Once the words were stamped and the circle was cut, I fussy cut three ice cream cones from the DSP in the same "Ice Cream Corner" package.  I taped the left and the right one in place and I used Dimensionals for the center one.  I added Dimensionals to the back of the circle and I set the circle in place on the front of the card.

I had some ribbon that matched close enough and I made a bow and set it in place using two large glue dots. I thought the ice cream part of the cone could use something so I added some Wink of Stella and the card was done.

This was a very fun and easy card to make. I love the look of it and I can see myself making more of these.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by today to see this cute birthday card,
