Just Because Cards

Have A Chill Summer!

20180617_194245

Hello there, I hope you’re week is getting off to a nice start!

Today’s card features ice cream cones from the Cone Building stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and a sentiment from Simon’s So Cool stamp set.  I’ve also used Alexandra Renke’s Snowfall stencil.

I made this card for a colleague’s daughter who just finished a tough early year of high school.  I learned recently that she like’s bullet journaling so I’m going to pair this card with a set of Arteza Fineliner pens. I can’t wait to give them to her!

I started by stamping the cone and ice cream scoop images onto Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock.  I used ice cream colors that matched colors from Color Throwdown Challenge #497 (#ctd497 #colorthrowdown), Altenew’s Citrus Burst, Rouge, and Bamboo.  I stamped the cones in Rocky Shore.  I cut out the scoops with a Brother ScanNCut2 and fussy cut the cones and set them all aside.

I used a foam blending tool to blend Tumbled Glass Distress ink through the stencil onto an A2-sized piece of the same cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink and then adhered the cones flush to the background.  I popped up and adhere the scoops with foam tape for a bit of dimension and finished up the card by adhering the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
