C4C – 424 A Sweet Desert

A fast and easy encouragement card.

Today is national Dessert Day!  Who knew?  My favorite dessert is ice cream.  So my Design Team card features an ice cream cone.  This card is intended to be a card to cheer someone up that needs it.

Let’s make this card!

Step 1:  Using the die set below 1031 – Ice Cream Cone.  I cut out all the pcs. of the ice cream cone.  I cut them all out of white cardstock but you could also cut the pcs. from colored cardstock and omit the coloring step.  Either color the pcs. or assemble the ones you cut with colored cardstock:

Step 2:  Using the largest die in set below cut out a pink cardstock oval 1173 – Dotted Scalloped Ovals:


Step 3:  Cut out a white oval using the second largest die using this set above, 1113 – Stitched Ovals:

Step 4:  Create the sentiment for the inside on your computer and print it on 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock.  Make a base card from this printed white cardstock.  Score at 5.5″ along the long side.  Fold over and trim to 5 x 7″.

Step 5:  Cut a pc. of designer paper the measures 4.75 x 6.75″ and adhere to the front of your base card.

Step 6:  Adhere the white oval to the pink oval and adhere them to the front of the card as shown.  Put a large foam circle under the “ice cream” and attach to the center of the ovals.  Glue down the bottom point end of the cone.

Step 7:  I used a Silhouette file for the sentiment but this could be a card for any occasion.

I also put the same plaid designer paper on the back of the card but it’s an optional step.
