Sweet Birthday Wishes

While I was in Kentucky I saw this stamp set at the local Hobby Lobby store and decided it could make gender neutral birthday cards, and who doesn’t like ice cream.

I stamped the images with Altenew Inks: Ruby Red; Rose Quartz, Puffy Hearts; Volcano Lake, Mountain Mist; Dark Chocolate, and Jet Black.  Hobby Lobby didn’t have the matching dies and so I fussy cut the images and then stacked the scoops of ice cream on the cone using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

I felt that it was just too plain when placed on a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and so a rectangle of Mint Green Polka Dot Paper was cut from the Pebbles Front Port 6 x 6 Paper Pack with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle. A rectangle of Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller and adhered to the back of the patterned paper.  It was then adhered to the card front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then the sentiment was stamped in the lower right corner with Altenew Dark Chocolate Ink.

3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the ice cream cone and then it placed on the patterned paper.   Clear Wink of Stella was added to the scoops of ice cream and cherry and the card was done.
