Ice Cream Truck Birthday (new die)

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have new dies in the online store. It's our Sweet Treats release with 13 new designs. They are so perfect for any card making occasion you may have. You can pick up the entire bundle for a limited time savings of 50%. The individual dies are currently 30% off.  

Today for your viewing pleasure I have created a birthday card using the new Ice Cream Truck die.  So, let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I cut the ice cream truck image using the packaging as a guide for the colors. I just loved the pink and purple truck. 
For my card layout, I decided to do a fun fold. I was looking on Pinterest one day and came across a double easel fold design. I thought it would work for my ice cream truck birthday card nicely. Here is a link to a video if you like visuals. 
white card base: 4 1/4" x 11" - scored at 5 1/2"
lemon-lime layer: 4" x 10 1/4", scored at 2 1/2" and at 5"
lemon-lime designer paper: 3 3/4" x 5" and 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
This is what the layer looks like after the score lines are burnished. 
Next, I attached the designer paper layers. 
Then this layer is attached to the white card base using double sided tape. 
I cut my sentiments in 2 shades of pink. They are from the sentiments w/shadows release. I used Sweet, Happy Birthday and Wishes
I attached the sentiments with glue dots. The ice cream truck is attached with dimensional adhesive. To finish off the card I scattered a few pink enamel dots.

That's my card for this week. See you again next Saturday. The DT will be showing more samples this week using these new dies.
