Sweet Ice Cream, Pansy Patch, Birthday Card

I haven't made a card using the "Sweet Ice Cream" set in a while. I have been too busy with other sets. This is such a fun one and can be used for kids and adults.  I'm not overly thrilled with this card, mostly because of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I used.  I couldn't find the ice cream DSP that went with this set. Then I found it after the card was done. The DSP that was showing through the plastic didn't look like it had anything to do with ice cream but had I looked inside I would have seen it.  Oh well.  You can use whatever kind of DSP you'd like at the bottom and make the card even better!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 2-1/4" x 4" piece of DSP from the "Abstract Beauty" 4" x 6" stack. You could easily make two cards quickly using this layout with that DSP. I only had to recycle 1" of it. I taped that DSP to the bottom of the card about 1/8" around each side and bottom edge.  

I die cut a scalloped rectangle using the dies from the "Color & Contour" bundle. 

Next the ice cream was stamped using Pool Party ink. I stamped the sprinkles using Early Espresso ink. Then I punched it out using the matching punch.

The bottom of the cone was stamped using Cinnamon Cider ink and the lines on it were also Cinnamon Cider ink.  

Dimensionals were added to the back of the rectangle piece and it was set in place on the front of the card. Then the cone was glued in place. I thought it would be more difficult to press it down if I had used tape. Had I used tape before I added the Dimensionals, tape would have worked just fine.  And then the ice cream was added using Dimensionals.

A few "Genial Gems" were added to the front of the card and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. It's such a fun and cute set!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's birthday card,
