Last week’s Facebook Live had me scooping up an Ice Cream or two for cards and a Voucher/Money Wallet. Madagascan Vanilla, nutty Pistachio and sweet Strawberry stacked and topped off with sprinkles and a chocolate 99p flake. Oh yes, here in the UK a 99p flake is often enjoyed with in an Ice Cream.
I wanted to create a Birthday treat of a Gift voucher / Money Wallet by recreating a tri-fold card. Earlier last week I shared my You Can Create project, of a wallet of this kind using Hydrangea Hill. Creating a watercolour wash behind the stacked Ice Cream gave a background to anchor our image. Strips of coordinating papers pulled from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack helped edge each panel.
Adhering a strip of ribbon beneath the front panel allows the wallet to be held together. By adding an internal pocket you are able to add a gift voucher or money gift. Lemonade Ice Lollies were always a favourite of mine as a kid, so I added this with the sentiment ‘Treat Yourself’.
Selecting your flavours
The Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch was used to punch this cone from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. I’m a tub girl myself but if I were to enjoy a cone, it would be one like this and not a wafer type that we often see in the UK. I used the same stamping technique for the Ice Cream scoops on this next card.
By stamping off the Ice Cream scoops and stamping them onto watercolour paper, I softened them down further with a Water Brush. The Ice Cream Cone Punch was then used to punch each scoop out that I then layered up using Glue Dots. The Chocolate Flake was stamped with Soft Suede on Soft Suede cardstock. I think this image was designed for the wooden stick of the Ice Lolly. This was then fussy cut and added to the Ice cream … mmmm it was looking good enough to eat!
It was getting hot in my summerhouse cabin so the top scoop was starting to melt, which let me to the sentiment I chose.
Other than the cardbase and embossed matting layer, this card was made entirely out of scraps.
Using the Ice Cream Cone as a Pennant, I stamped and punched out cones to resemble bunting. A very simple little card to create that doesn’t have an Ice Cream in sight.
I hope you have enjoyed my share with you today and the inspiration I’ve shared with this suite.
