Well, this post was supposed to be on Friday. Sorry! My youngest did not have school on Friday, so that messed me up big time! I had the card all made and last night I saw it on my desk, after cleaning up from making a commission, and BAM! There it is under a pile of cardstock, ugh!! Without further ado, here is Friday’s card.
To start off, I created the word background using a sentiment stamp. For the life of me I can’t do anything straight and the gaps were too big on my Stamparatus for what I wanted to do in order to use the Skip Method (which I will post a tutorial for soon). Therefore, my words are not in a straight line, but still came out cute. The colors I used were Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape. When I was done stamping, I cut the square down to 3-1/2″x3-1/2″ and used my blending brush to highlight the edges with Coastal Cabana.
Like the other cards this past week, I cut out the ice cream cone in white using the punch. Using the blending brushes I colored the scoops in Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape. The cone is colored in Crumb Cake and the waffle marks are in Soft Suede. Because I like pearls, I added 3 pearl embellishments colored with my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend to stand out a bit more.
Next, I stamped the sentiment onto vellum with a VersaMark ink pad and used embossing powder to bring it to the forefront of the card. Once that was done, I wrapped it around the sides of the card and secured it with regular old Scotch tape. Then I mounted it on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 3-3/4″x3-3/4″.
This card is a zig zag type fold. My card base measures 4-1/4″x11″. On the 11″ side I scored it at 4-1/4″and 8-1/2″.
The brown on the right side is the card front and has glue only on one side to hold it in place.
I highlighted the inside with a blending brush and Coastal Cabana. You can always add a stamped image, but I made this one blank to have more room for writing a short letter to a friend on her birthday.
I hope you enjoyed the last project for Sweet Ice Cream Week and I will see you on Monday for the beginning of Quite Curvy Week!
