A Summery Birthday Treat

It's time for another CCEE Stamper's Blog Challenge, and this week we were challenged to make a card/project with an ice cream image or sentiment since it's National Ice Cream Day July 17.

Well, since I don't own any ice cream images, I decided to make my own cone with a template by Linsey Rickett that I found on the Scor-Pal website. She calls them Ice cream cups.

See the sweet medallion I attached? I made it with a JustRite set called Elegant Charms. I love them. There are a variety of shapes and sentiments, and they come in handy for packages, or just to dress up a card. I got mine at Stamper's Dream.

To get the cone texture, I embossed it with the bottom portion of the Sizzix Embossing Folder Thank You Set #5, and lightly sanded it.

The ice cream portion of the cone was made with felt, and I added some Burlap String and a sweet little button.

Thanks so much for stopping. Be sure to check out the CCEE Stamper's Blog to see what summery treats the other gals are sharing.

Happy Stamping!

Oh, I wish I had seen this sweet little card before I created my brother-in-law's card. His last name is Cone and that would have been the perfect card for him. I will have to save this to make for him next year. That is by far the most darling little card. Thanks for sharing.
