Celebrate Everything!

In honor of summer my project for you today is an ice cream cone card.  I started with some Kraft card and made my card a portrait card by cutting my paper at 4 1/4" X 11 and scored it at 5 1/2". I then grabbed a couple of pieces of card stock from my Echo Park Paper Pad Summer Days. I cut the red mat at 4" X 5 1/4" and the patterned paper with the ice cream cones at 3 3/4" X 5". I used my corner rounder to round the corners of all the layers and the card base. My cupcake is cut at 3" from the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge. I used my Imagine to cut the image and the Bubblegum Stripes cartridge for the colors. For the shadow I used a black with tiny pink polka dots also from the Bubblegum Stripes cartridge. This cartridge is a special order cartridge from Cutter's Creek so if interested please be sure to contact Kim. I adhered my paper layers together and wrapped some yellow and white striped bakers twine around them and adhered the mats to my card with my ATG Gun (which I love by the way!!!) For my Ice Cream Cone I ran the cone part through my cuttlebug and embossed it with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I then used my Tea Dye Distress Ink to ink over the embossing to help it stand out. I layered my image and then added it to my card with some foam tape. To finish the card I added some iRock Hot Rocks Glitter Gems to add sprinkles to my cone.  To the drip I added some Glossy Accents to give it some dimension and shine so it looks wet. Finally added my sentiment stamped in some brown ink.
