Do you like ice cream? Do you know anyone who likes or should I say loves ice cream? If so, this is a perfect birthday card just for them! Doesn't it look yummy? When I was working on cards for my open house that I had in January, I saw this card on Pinterest, which was created by Kylie Bertucci, and knew I had to make it. I changed it up a little bit to make it my own. Isn't it a great birthday card you could use for an adult or a child?
To make this card you will need the following products:
Peekaboo Peach Cardstock #141417
- cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
Watermelon Wonder Cardstock #138334
- cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper #142779
- cut at 4" x 4 1/2"
To cut the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper you are going to measure up 2 3/4" on the right hand side and make a little mark. You will then go to your trimmer and cut from your mark to the opposite corner. This is going to give you the diagonal cut you need.
Here is a little tip for doing the embossing so it lines up where you would like it. Lay, don't adhere, your designer series paper on the Watermelon Wonder cardststock where you would like it to be. Then using VersaMark ink stamp your image, centering it between the two pieces of designer paper. Once you have it stamped take off the paper and put the white embossing powder over the stamped image. Make sure you do this quickly as you don't want your ink to dry before you put on your embossing powder. Then use your heat gun and heat up the embossing powder. It is so striking the white against the Watermelon Wonder paper.
When you are finished embossing you can adhere your Watermelon Wonder paper to your Peekaboo Peach. Then put on your designer series paper and finally your ice cream cone. I used stampin dimensionals to pop the ice cream cone off the card.
On the inside of the card I used a piece of the Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape on the bottom of the white piece a paper. I used the tape that has the popsicles design on it. Then for my envelope I used the washi tape that has the Peekaboo Peach design. When you adhere washi tape on to an envelope make sure you cut off your tape even with your envelope. You don't want any over hanging that could get caught in the machines at the post office. You can use any of the washi tape that you would like on your card.
I think we are finally over the stomach bug at our house. Thank goodness, that stuff is awful. Yesterday was the first day that I could finally eat something beside toast and soup. It was wonderful!
Today we should be finishing up with all of our plumbing issues. I don't think I told you all the issues we have been having. They finished up with the pipes, the ones we originally had planned to fix, on Thursday. While they were working we found out we had a leak in our main shut off valve and they were scheduled to fix that today. The plumber also told us that we would need to have our hot water heater replaced shortly as it is going to start leaking very soon. My first thought was great, I better start saving money for that now. Well, when he said shortly I don't think he might today. Yep, that's right, we haven't had hot water since Thursday afternoon.
Thank goodness we have wonderful friends that have opened up their home to us to take showers. I tried so hard on Friday morning to take a cold shower and I just couldn't do it. Man, that was cold. Maybe if it was 90 degrees out, but not when it is winter. I will be very grateful tomorrow afternoon when we have hot water. You know, you don't realize how much you use something until it is gone. I will be very thankful for hot water.
Thank you for stopping by today and have a fantastic week!
