Sweet Stack of Cold Yumminess
At the catalog launch open house and BOGO last week, we did a couple of make and takes, and one of them used the RMHC Sprinkles of Life stamp set. It's the same set that I used a couple months ago (has it really been that long?!) for this cute cupcake love note-sized card. The versatility of this set, and the greetings, is just a sure winner for anyone! Add in the fact that $3 from the sale of each set goes to Ronald MacDonald House Charities, and it's a win-win for everyone!
It's funny how I start out in one direction and sometimes end up going in a completely different direction before a card is finished. Does that ever happen to you? I had planned to use some sort of floral image, so I chose the background DSP from English Garden and cut eight of them for the open house. But before I could decide on which floral image to use, the ice cream started singing its siren song, so I ended up with a summery card with a stacked cone. Mmmm, raspberry, pistachio, and vanilla with pink sprinkles sounds yummy right about now, doesn't it?
5-1/2 x 8-1/2" Whisper White Thick Cardstock for card base, scored at 4-1/4"
4" x 5-1/4" English Garden DSP for background
2-3/4" x 4-1/8" Rose Red cardstock
2-1/2" x 3-7/8" Whisper White, embossed with the Decorative Dots folder
Scrap Whisper White to stamp ice cream in Sahara Sand, punch with Tree Builder Punch, stamp sprinkles in Rose Red
Scrap Mint Macaron to stamp ice cream in Mint Macaron, punch with Tree Builder Punch
Scrap Rose Red to stamp ice cream in Rose Red, punch with Tree Builder Punch
Scrap Crumb Cake to stamp cone in Crumb Cake, fussy cut with Paper Snips
3/8" x 2" Whisper White to stamp greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black (snip banner end)
Cone is adhered to embossed panel with SNAIL. To fasten ice cream, use three Stampin' Dimensionals under Rose Red, and only ONE dimensional at top of the next two layers. Use a dab of glue to fasten greeting between ice cream layers.
