Just Because Cards, Summer Cards

Ice Cream


Hi there, I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

Today I’ve used the little ice cream truck from Catherine Pooler Designs again to create a shaker card using the beautiful Charleston Sequin Mix.  These sherbert-y colors are so refreshing!

The sweet stamp and the coordinating patterned paper are part of the new Hello Sunshine release, all of which is available at Scrapbook.com.

I began by stamping the truck from the I Scream You Scream stamp set in Midnight ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  Using the same color palette that I used the other day, I colored the body of the truck with RV00, RV11, RV13, and RV14, and used YG0000 and YG00 for its trim.  I colored the ice cream cone and signs with BG10, BG11, and BG13 and colored the cones with E33 and E35.  I used the same colors to color in lots of ice cream treats from the same stamp set and then I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Using one of circles from the Scrapbook.com Nested Circles die set, I die cut a circle out of an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White.  On the back side of the panel, I added double-sided 1/8″ adhesive tape around the border of the open circle and then adhered a piece of Hero Arts acetate to it to create the clear window for the shaker.

For the background that would appear behind the shaker window, I cut a piece of patterned paper, from the Sum-Sum-Summertime patterned paper pack, and adhered a few of the die cut ice cream treats to it so that some treats will always be visible in the window, even if the rest of the loose shaker elements sink to the bottom.  With this piece prepared, I added Darice double-sided foam sticky strips around the shaker window to create the well to hold the shaker elements and then poured in some of the pretty sequins, confetti, and seed beads from the Charleston Sequin Mix. I added the remaining ice cream treats, removed the release paper from the foam strips, and adhered the patterned paper background.

To finish, I used foam tape to adhere the ice cream truck to the front of the card and then adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for coming by!
