Ice Cream Card


Hello from Paris, France!  My husband and I are on holiday to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!  We'll be spending the next couple of weeks touring around Europe so all my posts will be pre-scheduled.  I'm afraid that I will not be able to comment on things while I am away - but will look forward to visits upon my return later this month.  I'm off until September and my M.Ed. is finished so I'm very excited about a break from the busyness that has been my life for the past few years!!  It seems surreal! 


This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is "Yummy! Yummy!"  We are challenging you to make a project with any type of summer dessert (ice cream, popsicle, fruit etc.).  I chose to make a card using the ice cream cut from Fast Food.  The "pistachio" ice cream was embossed with my Swiss Dots folder and I added a bit of doodling too.  The base is from Elegant Edges - but I trimmed the bottom in order for the card to stand upright.  I did a bit of embossing and added Crackle Accents to the dish.  I also added Glossy Accents to the cherry.  I punched a border and then stamped a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Inside & Out Set #2. 

Please head to Fantabulous Cricut to see what the rest of the design team has come up with!!

Also, remember that the My Craft Spot stamp release party begins today!  All week long, I'll be showcasing projects with the new stamp sets and on Saturday, the entire design team is taking part in a blog hop - with a NEW release stamp set to be given away at each stop along the way!!
