Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.”We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My family has a bunch of birthdays in the Spring, so it’s birthday celebrations galore! Why not celebrate with a quadruple-decker sorbet cone?
To accommodate my tall ice cream cone, I used a slimline card design; Thick Basic White Cardstock 7″ X 8″, folded at 3 1/2″. Then, I layered the card front with True Love Designer Paper, 3 1/4″ X 7 3/4″. Next, I cut a layer of Thick Basic White Cardstock, 1/8″ smaller, giving it a 1/16″ black & white border. I used “thick,” so the black & white print wouldn’t be visible through it.
Prior to gluing the layers together, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments in Stazon Black Ink. “Happy Birthday” and “treat yourself” are from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set.
Now, for the really fun part, stamping the sorbet. I used the stamp, from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, to stamp the scoops in four, fruity colored inks: Flirty Flamingo (strawberry), Granny Apple Green (lime), Daffodil Delight (lemon), and Pumpkin Pie (orange). Which flavor do you like best?
After stamping, I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch for cutting; so easy, and so fun! The cone was made with Crumb Cake Cardstock, the tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, and the same Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.
The last detail was finding some coordinating colors of Sequins to add some sparkle to my birthday card. I’m ready to celebrate!
Now, all that’s needed is a slimline envelope. I’ve been using regular, legal-sized envelopes, but decided to try making one with designer paper.
I cut 12″ X 12″ True Love Designer Paper into a piece, 9 1/2″ X 10 1/2″. Then, I scored the bottom at 4″ and the top at 2 1/4″. I added Stampin’ Seal along the two sides of the bottom portion, and closed it, making a pocket. I’ll add Stampin’ Seal to the top flap, when I’m ready to seal it.
TIP: Score gently, so you don’t cut through the paper. This same design could be used for cards of all sizes. Just make sure there’s enough width, so the card will slide in and out easily after gluing the sides, and the pocket is tall enough to cover the card.
I used an address label on the back. The pretty paper makes up for the lack of fancy angles, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy celebrating with your family!
