Happy Ice Cream Cone Day! July is National Ice Cream Month and it brings us three special days:
- July 1 – Creative Flavor Day
- July 7 – Ice Cream Cone Day
- July 23 – Birthday of the Ice Cream Cone, which was invented in 1904, is 111 years old!
I needed to make a card with a ‘Holiday Focus – Ice Cream’, so of course I used my favorite flavor, Mint Chocolate Chip as the flavor for the card. To get started, using Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake card stock I stamped the ice cream (cloud) and cone from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set with VersaMark and used Clear Stampin Embossing Powder. Once the images were heat set, I used Chocolate Chip ink and another stamp from the set to stamp the “chips”. The Tree Builder punch makes it easy to punch out the ice cream and used paper snips to cut out the cone. The cone & ice cream is backed with dimensionals for depth. To create the background I used the sun stamp from Kinda Eclectic. In the lower right corner using Chocolate Chip I stamped the word ‘Sunshine’ from Crazy About You stamp set. The word Celebrate is from the Expressions Natural Elements and is both adhered to the card with Crystal Effects and covered with to make it shine! I find it easier to cover with Crystal Effects first and let dry before adhering to the card, this avoids Crystal Effects were you don’t want it. Now doesn’t this want to you to go out and get some ice cream and cones!
