My Sheri Crafts Challenge #90

        I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!!!!

 Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month?  Hooray for July, right?!!!  Over at My Sheri Crafts we are celebrating National Ice Cream Month by using Ice Cream on our projects.  Here is the card I made:

Isn't that fun!?!?!
I started with a bright yellow card base from Wal-Mart and added a strip of scrap paper from DCWV Nana's Kids pack.  The ice cream cones are from the Doodle Charms cartridge, border function, 2 sets.  I chalked up the "cones" with brown chalk and use my Cuttlebug to emboss the ice cream with swirls.  The buttons are from Wal-Mart and the purple lace strip is a gift from a sweet, generous friend.

The sentiment is computer generated and printed on Saf-Mat clear sticker paper. 

The Saf-Mat is fun to work with because it almost disappears on the card, making it look like you printed right on the card.

I pop dotted the cones so there is LOTS of texture on this card.  I really like how it turned out and hope you do, too.  Please let me know what you think!

Hop on over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the DT inspiration along with our winning Guest Designer, Mary from My True Blue Creations!  Then join us this week for a super fun challenge!  Can't wait to see your creations!

  1. Oh wow, Sarah! This is so cute! I love all the mini ice cream cones all in a row. I especially love the use of buttons here. Yummy yummy project

  2. Hi Sarah,
    Oh just how cute is this card. First of all, you could not have a better sentiment!! And the embossing of the ice cream is wonderful. But, what really carches my eye is that you added those cute little buttons to the tops of the ice cream cones. Great idea!! And that trim is so cute on the card.

  3. SCRUMPTIOUS card, Sarah, with all the dimension of your cones and your purples & yellows with that fun BG paper! That lace it the perfect finishing touch too!!!

  4. Sarah, all these mini ice creams are just so adorable! What a fun card, and I just LOVE those buttons on top! :)

  5. What a great idea to use buttons as cherries! Plus, embossing the swirls. A couple of the girls used that trick...don't know why I didn't think of it! Hugs!

  18. Sarah, the way you positioned the ice cream cones suggest heaps of fun! It seems like they're "partying" :-D I love how the purple trim also draws the eye to the dots on the designer paper.
