I used the sweet Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper, the fabulous Happy Thoughts stamp set – both from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the retiring Stitched Nested Labels dies to make this fun card.
Start with a Gorgeous Grape cs card base. Cut a Cinnamon Cider cs panel and an Ice Cream Corner DSP panel and glue them together. Wrap the panels with Blackberry Bliss Striped ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panel to the card base.
Die cut a Basic White cs stitched label with the Stitched Nested Label dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink on the stitched label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment stitched label centered on the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon.
Fussy cut an ice cream cone from the Ice Cream Corner DSP. Use glue dots and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it to the card front overlapping the bottom right corner of the sentiment stitched label. Add Wink of Stella to the ice cream scoops for sparkle. Add three Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles to the ice cream by first adding a small dot of Shimmery Crystal Effects as glue to the places you want the sprinkles to go. Then use your Take Your Pick tool to add the sprinkles to the dots of Shimmery Crystal Effects. I also added another dot of Shimmery Crystal Effects to the top of the sprinkles for extra sparkle (be sure to let the Shimmery Crystal Effects dry completely).
Tie a small bow with the Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon and add it to the top left side of sentiment stitched label using glue dots.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I fussy cut ice cream cones from the Ice Cream Corner DSP and glued them to the inside and back of the card. I also added a strip of DSP to the back of the card to pull the theme through.
