Ice Cream Card


This is Anja. We're showcasing some old dies this month and I decided to make a summer card, using ice cream cones.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Ice Cream Cones),
- Distress Oxides (Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Seedless Preserves, Broken China, Abandoned Coral),
- white card base (10,5 x 21 cm),
- water color paper for die cuts and background (10,2 x 21,7 cm),
- water spritzer,
- heat gun,
- Versafine Onyx Black ink,
- sentiment stamp,
- scissors,
- paper glue.

First I made the background. I used Distress Oxides and blended it together.

I used water spritzer to add some interest to the background. I dried it with the heat gun.

Then I cut and colored the ice cream cones.

I again used the water spritzer for the ice cream.

Then I stamped the sentiments and cut it out with the scissors.

And then I just glued all the pieces to the card base. And this is my finished summer card.

This is all from me for today. Have a nice week.
