I made a very colorful birthday card featuring an ice cream cone! I used Stampin' Up colors - bermuda bay, watermelon wonder, and peek-a-boo peach.
The stamp is from Studio G, stamped in watermelon wonder, cut out with a 1-3/4" circle punch and then layered onto a slightly larger scallop circle die from the Stampin' Up Layering Circles Framelits Dies.
I used a retired Stampin' Up stamp set from 2001 called Two Step Stampin Perfect Party for the ice cream cone and background. I love the current Cool Treats stamp set by Stampin' Up, but I remembered I had a similar one from years ago, so I dug it out and made this card! I stamped the cone onto crumbcake cardstock, then cut it out by hand. I stamped the two scoops of ice cream onto watermelon wonder and peek-a-boo peach cardstock, and cut them out by hand as well. I used one of the stamps from the stamp set to stamp the background on the bermuda bay layer.
The watermelon wonder card base is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2", side folding, I layered bermuda bay cardstock on top that I die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Bunch of Stitched Shapes. I also die cut some flags using the same Simon Says set to add to the right of the cone. I use this die set a LOT! It's one of my all time favorites.
I didn't have a rectangle shaped stitched die the right size, so I die cut two of the largest stitched squares from the Stampin' Up Stitched Framelits and layered them together, hiding the seam with a piece of watermelon wonder patterened paper.
After attaching the cone, scoops of ice cream and other pieces to the card, I decided it needed something else, so I added a tied yarn bow on the left side and added some enamel dots. I didn't have the right colors, so I colored some white dots with a couple Sharpie markers in similar colors. The "happy birthday" greeting is from the And Many More Stampin' Up stamp set (now retired).
Here is a matching treat bag I made to go with the card. It uses the same measurements and directions as the Easter Treat Bags from my March 31 post. Finished bag is 3-1/2 x 5 inches. I stamped the same star background onto the bag as I did on the card. The "FOR YOU" is from the Stampin' Up Perfectly Wrapped stamp set and I cut it out using another die from the Simon Says die set.
I have several spring and summer birthdays coming up and I think this card and treat bag will be just the thing! Who doesn't love ice cream, right? Actually, the bright colors of the ice cream remind me more of sherbet!
