National Ice Cream Month

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month?  Well, it is and I can't think of any thing better to celebrate this month.  The new challenge this week at My Sheri Crafts all about ice cream!  Make a project that includes ice cream.

Here is my card.  I used the Cricut cartridge SWEET SHOPPE to cut the ice cream cones.  Both cones were embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.



  The little mint chocolate chip cone has some little brown glass beads added for the chocolate chips.



 The larger Strawberry cone is a shaker cone.  I created it on mu Gypsy by inserting a smaller scoop of ice cream inside the larger scoop.  This created a frame.  I cut a piece of the clear plastic that a Cricut cartridge had come in, the size and shape of the ice cream.  I used used 3D Crystal Lacquer to attach it to the ice cream frame.  I then cut two layers of foam tape  and attached it to the frame.  Before attaching it to the ice cream cone base, I poured some little red glass beads in it.  I also used a little strawberry pink chalk on the ice cream.




The ice cream sundae is also a cut from  the SWEET SHOPPE cartridge. I added Glossy Accents to the hot fudge.  And to the cherry on top, I added red Stickles.  



The sentiment is a combination of stamps from K Andrew Designs.  I used a Momento Rich Cocoa ink pad for the sentiment.   I just thought it was perfect for this sweet little card with all these little goodies sprinkled on top.  I used the Spellbinder Classic Scallop Rectangle to cut and emboss the sentiment label. The edges were inked in pink and brown and the corners were topped with blue and yellow gems.  




The right edge border was created with a MS border punch.  I topped it with a lavender straight border and sheer brown ribbon and bow.  I also added a few multi-colored gems to the card.  So, that is it, my ice cream card.


Come and join me and all of the AMAZING DESIGNERS at  My Sheri Crafts for some yummy ice cream fun!
