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

While I was looking for something else on Pinterest, I ran across this card and there was something about it that caught my eye and I had to give it a try. I didn't have enough Bermuda Bay card stock so I improvised. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. The original card is done using a half-sheet of Bermuda Bay card stock. I did like that look so I just scaled down the layers to make the Basic White card base work.

The Bermuda Bay layer was cut at 4-1/8" x 5-3/8". And the Pool Party layer on top of that was cut at 4" x 5-1/4".  There, now I got the colors that were used on the original card and could have a Basic White card base. I taped the two layers together and then I taped them to the front of the card.

I cut a scrap piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Ice Cream Corner" 12" x 12" package. My scrap measured 1-1/2" wide and I cut it to 4-1/2" long. I was glad I was able to use that strip of DSP. You can make your DSP piece wider if you'd like. I just went with the piece I had. I cut a 1-5/8" x 4-5/8" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock for the layer. I taped those two layers together and then I taped it to the left side of the card.

The focal piece is cut from a piece of Basic White and it measures 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" and the Bermuda Bay layer was cut at 2-3/8" x 3-3/8".

I took the Basic White piece and I stamped the dots using the image from the "Sweet Ice Cream" set using Pool Party ink. The words were added next. They are from the same "Sweet Ice Cream" set and were stamped using Soft Suede ink.  I taped those two layers together and then taped it to the front of the card.

I stamped the ice creams using Petal Pink, Crushed Curry and Soft Sea Foam inks. I punched them out using the matching punch. I stamped the sprinkles using Soft Suede ink.

The cone was stamped using Cinnamon Cider ink and the "texture" was stamped using Soft Suede ink. I punched that piece out.

I glued the Soft Sea Foam colored ice cream to the top of the cone. Then I glued the Crushed Curry ice cream to the Soft Sea Foam ice cream and then the Petal Pink ice cream was glued in place.  I added Dimensionals to the back and I set the piece in place on the Basic White focal piece. 

I had some pale yellow rhinestones so I thought I'd add them to the focal piece and the card was done.

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make. I SO love this ice cream set. I saw another fun and clever card made using this set and I'm thinking about giving it a try since it involves images that I have not used yet. I'd like to say that I used every image in this set before it retires (whenever that is)!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop by and see this fun ice cream cone birthday card,
