Ice Cream Cards

I love ice cream, obviously.  It seems like just about everyone does, which is why it's such a fun motif for a card.  I recently won Doodlebug's new "Fruit Stand" collection and decided to use it for some ice-cream themed cards.  I raided my cardstock scraps for browns, pinks, and whites and got to work. First, I used the edge of a brown rectangular ink pad to create a series of vertical and horizontal lines on tan rectangles to mimic the look of an ice cream cone.  I adhered the two pieces to each other, then topped them with a freeform scoop.

The first card I made was a simple chocolate cone with a colorful sentiment sticker.


I paired a vanilla ice cream cone with a bright and colorful floral background.


The strawberry-shaped brads are a fun touch.


For my last card, I cut tiny slivers of brown cardstock, put dots of glue randomly on the cone, and sprinkled.


Each card only took a few minutes to make AND I used up scraps in the process.  A definite win!
