Ice Cream Cone Card

It sure is a beautiful day for an ice cream cone here in Clovis, it was a balmy high of 67 today. I was inspired to make this card when I saw Cindy Walton's card in the Sept. 2008 Stampers' Sampler Take Ten magazine.

I used the scallop punch to make the ice cream scoops: the pink one I used the piercing tool; the middle scoop is patterned paper; and the chocolate scoop has pearl rhinestone stickers I found at Michael's (had 3 different sizes in the packet). For the cone I painted the diagonal lines in chocolate ink with a small paint brush. I crimped the lime green background and attached it to the chocolate cs. I tied the pink ribbon around the background cs and added the white lace ribbon for the two bow look.

The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped in chocolate ink on pink cs and attached to chocolate cs. I used dimensionals on the sentiment and bottom part of the ice cream cone. The great thing about making this card is the ice cream scoops can be any "flavor"you want. Enjoy!
