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 brownrectangular 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!
