A TASTE OF SUMMER!




Good morning all
For this week's challenge over at the Cuttlebug Spot Nilda asked us to to do a card based on end of school or beginning of Summer. I chose beginning of Summer and decided to make an icecream card as my childhood memories of Summer were that when I had ice creams I knew Summer was here!
It's quite a large card (white base) and I designed the card with DS and my cricut by simply welding some rectangles from Plantin School and the ice cream border feature on doodlecharms. I cut the border ice cream in a creamy pearlescent card and cuttled the cones wit QK Diamonds and dots folder and the cut the layers twice in pink, mint and lemon pearlescent card. The mint and pink are embossed with elegant swirls cbug folder and a portion cut away of the top layer to insert the chocolate 'flakes' I made which are just a strip of brown card embossed with cb distressed stripes. I cut some teeny squares of brown for the choc chips on the mint choc chip ice cream, swiped some red ink over the pink ice cream for the rasberry ripple and covered the lemon sorbet in diamond dust. The gingham and dotty paper are Making Memories and the little labels on the ice creams and sentiment are computer generated. The cherries on the tops are clear dome stickers with red card,
This was a fun challenge! Pop over to the Cuttlebug spot and see the great ideas everyone came up with and we'd love you to join in and see your ideas too!
Have a great day everyone
