You’re Sweet, Cool Treats

You're Sweet, Cool Treats

The Cool Treats bundle by Stampin’ Up! is such a fun collection of ice cream and popsicle images combined with great phrases in typestyles you’ll love.

Today I’m sharing a sweet little card you can make with a few supplies and lots of layering. This 3-inch by 3-inch card would be a great attachment for a small gift no matter the occasion. There are actually eight layers here, which seems like a lot, but you can cut all of the various shapes at the same time using a Big Shot. The platform easily handled all of the pieces at once.

After cutting all of the layers, use Multipurpose Glue to attach the pieces. It doesn’t take much and you’ll have a little time to slide your shapes in place before the glue dries.

I love how the scalloped square mimics the shape of the ice cream. Pretty cute, huh?

Silver Metallic Thread is bundled up and attached behind the ice cream cone using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the Dimensionals first, then randomly pinch the thread onto it before attaching to the front of the card. A few sequins help bring out the shine in the thread.

Global Design Project #GDP069

Inspiration for the card comes from the Global Design Project #GDP069, a Color Challenge. This week, we’re trying something new by letting you choose one of the colors. How fun is that? Delightful Dijon, Silver and your free choice is sure to inspire a wide variety of projects.
