Ice Cream Card

It's a beautiful day today - Warm and sunny - FINALLY! So I thought I'd share with you a cute little summery card I made with the new set Sweet Scoops. The cone is stamped with Soft Suede ink. I stamped the ice cream top by inking it with Pretty in Pink ink and then rolling the edges on the melon mambo ink pad. This technique is called "rock and roll" and makes a cool two-tone image. You could also do this with markers. Just make sure that you always go from light to dark. You don't want to do the dark color first and then have it mess up your lighter colored ink pad or marker! To finish the ice cream cone I stamped a cherry on the top.

Then to make it into a card I framed it with some melon mambo card stock and tied a pink taffeta ribbon along the bottom. The sentiment "sweet" is actually from the sentiment included with the Sweet Scoops set. It says "Have a sweet celebration" but I just inked the word sweet with a marker and stamped it. Then I punched it with the tab punch.

The last thing I used on this card was a piece of patterned paper. I used a piece from the Razzleberry Lemonade pack that I punched the edge with using Eyelet border punch!

Sweet and simple :)
