Good Morning Fellow Stampers ~
Happy Thursday. It's time for my next installment of the "sneak peak" of the birthday cards my group will be making this coming Saturday at the Annual Birthday Stamp-a-Stack. We're going to take a turn from yesterday's masculine birthday and we're going to create some fun, summery and just for the kids!
Today's card design is a little simple, and geared for a young tween or teenager.
I played a little bit, and discovered that that our Layering Ovals framelits fit PERFECTLY inside the oval created with the Confetti textured impressions embossing folder.
Isn't that "cool"!! (LOL - pun intended!)
I took some of the extra layering out of this design that I might normally do, and cut one 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" piece for my embossing folder and am allowing the ice cream sundae to be the focal point of this card with the simple fun background to set it off.
Stitched Shape Framelits and a scalloped Layering Oval make the perfect background for my cute sundae.
I used a Pool Party card base; and Tangerine Tango for the background oval.
The ice cream bowl is cut from Early Espresso; and my cute ice cream scoops are Cucumber Crush, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight, with a Chocolate Chip chocolate coating (mmmmmm - almost good enough to eat).
A few rhinestones for "sprinkles", a silver foil spoon, and a strip of Party Animal Washi Tape on the bowl - look how cute this is!!!
I knew when I started playing with this set I was going to love it!!!
Now the neat thing about the sentiment on the front of this card is that it's really pretty "generic."
You could use this card as a note of encouragement for your child, or to congratulate them on a job well done (how about that "A" in math class ?)
Or, as in this case, it's a birthday card!
How fun is this?
I used the sprinkles image in the Cool Treats stamp set to create some "fun" around the sentiment inside the card.
Using the different images in your stamp sets can help you create a fun and easy look to the inside of your cards.
They don't need to be bland or boring -- remember that! Kind of like my mantra for envelopes ("no naked envelopes").
Well, there you go!!! This really is a fun, simple card to put together. I think I had the most fun creating my ice cream sundae. You could really go "traditional" and make vanilla ice cream scoops with the chocolate drippings. Wouldn't that be cute? OMG!
