This is one of the cards I included in my Ice Cream Corner Card Sampler last month and it’s one of my favorites. I started with a base of Poppy Parade cardstock and then added a layer of Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.
Using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I cut a rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink using the stamp set, Sweet Ice Cream. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.
Using the Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut a butterfly out of the same design of Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper that I used for the first layer of the card. I adhered the butterfly to the stitched rectangle by adding Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals down the center of the butterfly that I cut in half. I use our Paper Snips to cut my Stampin’ Dimensionals. The scissors can get sticky so I have two pairs. I use one specifically for cutting anything that might be sticky and I keep a piece of ribbon on them so I know which pair I shouldn’t use when cutting paper or ribbon.
To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones in Pumpkin Pie. Our Holiday Rhinestones are currently on the Low Inventory List which means they could go into backorder status very soon. Don’t let the name fool you, these pretty rhinestones are for every day, not just holidays.
You can find the measurements I used to make today’s card below the Supply List.
