Ice Cream Corner Thursday - Fun Kid Friendly Cards


 

For this fun card, I arranged the sprinkles and polka dot DSP with a 1/4" strip to So Saffron cardstock onto my white card base. I then cut out some cute ice cream scoops and a cone out of the designer series papers. Then I assembled my ice cream cone. If fussy cutting is not your thing, there's a punch available to make it easier to cut out the cones and scoops consistently each time. I'll have it listed in the supplies below.


Here's a list of items used for this card. (Click on images below to order the material through me).

Ice Cream Corner Wednesday - Fun Kid Friendly Cards

 

Playing with asymmetry for this card. The coordinating DSP makes all the pieces blend together very well. I did choose to emboss the sentiment and double up on the cardstock for the sentiment to give it more dimension on the card.

Ice Cream Corner Tuesday - Fun Kid Friendly Cards

 


Today's sweet treat is a simple card using just the designer paper. Add a little texture with the subtle 3D embossing folder and some embossing powder to the sentiment. I upcycled a paper string (like the kind found on paper bag handles) to add some interest.  Now, it's ready for nice note of appreciation to someone who brightened your day!
