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

The real problem with this year's new Stampin' Up! catalog was there were just too many great stamp sets in it. And the other problem was that I bought too many of them.  LOL  I have been having a lot of fun with the "Sweet Ice Cream" set and I thought I'd play with it again today. I actually did put it away the last time I used it (shocker, huh?  LOL).

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of  Melon Mambo card stock. I was going to use Flirty Flamingo but I grabbed the Melon Mambo by mistake and didn't even notice until I was ready to stamp the ice cream. Anyway, this card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. You can always cut it in half on the 8-1/2" side so it measures 4-1/4" x 11" and then fold it in half. Then it will open on the right and the fold will be on the left. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the inside of the card and I taped it in place.

I die cut the second largest "Stitched Circle" die using Basic White card stock.  Cut the circle close to the corner because you will be using that 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece to stamp and punch the cone and ice cream, plus the words.

I then cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Blushing Bride card stock. I used the scalloped die that was just a bit larger than the stitched circle.  I die cut it from the center of the Blushing Bride piece of card stock. The 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock will hide the hole in the middle!  Fun to use the card stock so it's not so wasted. 

So the Basic White piece is taped to the Blushing Bride piece and the Blushing Bride piece is taped to the card base.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Ice Cream Corner" 12" x 12" package. The stripes on this DSP go up and down, so I had to turn the paper side ways a bit so I could get the lines at an angle. I cut the DSP at 1-3/4" x 5-1/8" and taped it to the bottom of the Basic White piece. 

The scalloped piece was cut using the die from the "Color & Contour" bundle. The dies in that bundle are wonderful. Lots of scalloped edge rectangles. I've used this scalloped die before and I LOVE it, it's very fun to play with. I taped the Melon Mambo scalloped die in place over the DSP. Make sure you don't let the edge of the DSP show where the scallops swoop up.

I taped the circles together and then set them on top of the card. I didn't tape them down yet. I needed to see where the ice cream was going to go and the words.

I stamped the cone using Cinnamon Cider ink and the lines on the cone were done using Early Espresso ink. I punched out the cone using the matching punch.

The ice creams were stamped using Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride inks. I also stamped the sprinkles using the matching colors.  

The words are from the same "Sweet Ice Cream" set and were stamped using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I fussy cut them out. I thought it was so cute on yesterday's card that I had to try it again. I'm not a fan of fussy cutting but when it's something fun it doesn't seem so bad. I really like this look.

I decided to add Dimensionals to the back of the taped circles. I set them in place on the card making sure I had room for the words at the bottom.

Then I set glued the top part of the cone in place. I chose glue so I could move it around if I needed to.

Then I added the Blushing Bride ice cream using Dimensionals. And I did the same for the Melon Mambo one but I made sure I didn't get the Dimensionals on the bottom part where they would end up on top of the other ice cream. 

The words were set in place with Dimensionals and some sprinkles were added using mono glue. Those sprinkles are from the "Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles" embellishments container.  They are SO fun and cute!  And the card was done.

I thought it was such a sweet, cute and easy card to make. I like it too because it's for an adult, teen or child.  Though I think it's a bit too pink for a guy card. 

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