Chilly Treats 5 cents

I have to agree, yesterday was a hot day and all I could think of is getting cooler. How about an Ice Cream? . . . it's always time for Ice Cream!!!! This week I decided to do a winter door sign. I started with a 7" x 11" sheet of Chip Board. I used my Gypsy to weld an alphabet to create the work CHILLY, and gave it a little twist. I used a lot of Cottage Cutz Dies this week, including the Snowman Doll, The Doll Accessory Set #3 (Scarf/Hat). I also used the Spring Flourish #1 for the wind swirls behind the word chilly. The top and bottom edge of the sign I used the Cottage Cutz Rick-Rack Edger, yes the sign was longer than the die, but I pieced it behind the bow on top and the 5 cent disc at the bottom. Accented the wind, lettering (treats) and scallop edge of 5 cent sign with Crystal Stickle. Inked the edge of the sign in Lavender with a sponge.
Because I wanted my snowman to be a treat, I decided to use the Cottage Cutz Ice Cream Cone die from earlier this year. I have always loved the waffle cone. It make a great themed ice cream cone. O' and don't forget the cherry on top. Keep Cool!!!!!!
Colors may have been a little different, but White, Light Blue, Deep Turquoise, Lavender and Lime Green are a good color mix for Christmas. Cool and Bright!
