Welcome!  We are happy you stopped by.

Today we are sharing another ice cream card using an image from Graciellie Design’s latest “Coffee & Ice Cream” digital set.  We really had fun coloring this cone of deliciousness and practiced adding shading and texture with our colored pencils.

Focal Point:

  • The triple-scoop ice cream cone image was resized and printed onto Accent Opaque 80lb white cardstock.
  • The image was colored with alcohol markers to represent mint chocolate-chip, strawberry and chocolate ice cream scoops.
  • Colored pencils were used to add depth and shadows to the cone and ice cream.
  • The image was fussy-cut
  • The sentiment was resized and printed onto 80lb kraft cardstock.

Background Panel:

  • A card panel using kraft 80lb cardstock was cut to a size of 4 ¾” x 6”. The Pierced Plaid Cover die was used to add texture to this panel.
  • Using the Hemstitched Rectangle dies, a frame was cut from beige 65lb cardstock that measured 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”.
  • Using a medium brown 80lb cardstock, the texture diecut was created using the “Texture 2” die from The Paper Rose.

Card Assembly:

  • The texture diecut was cut into three pieces and adhered randomly to the kraft card panel, slightly hanging off the edges.
  • The beige Hemstitched frame was adhered to the center of the card panel on top of the texture diecuts.
  • A fishtail banner die was used to cut out the sentiment which was adhered to the panel.
  • The ice cream cone was adhered using foam tape to give dimension.
  • The kraft card panel was adhered to a medium brown 80lb side-folding card base that measures 5-1/8” x 6-1/4”.

This card was simple and fun to make.  As always, we are grateful that you stopped by.  Stay safe (and cool)!
