Hey there friends. Katie here today with a fun birthday card. February is the one month of the year that I don’t have many family/friends birthday’s in my life, so it is a good time to make and stock up on birthday cards. I was so excited to get and work with the new Concord & 9th Birthday Scoops Stamps and Die set.
This set is so fun and magical. When I first started making this card, I intended to use the sentiment, but then I got a bit carried away with ice-cream and didn’t use the sentiment after all. I will just put that aside for another day and another birthday card!
Here is how I made this one. I started by using my Misti and Distress Oxides to create various types of sorbet and their accompanying cones. For the ice cream, I used Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina & Worn Lipstick. I added the sprinkles to my pink ice cream with Ground Espresso. My cones are made using Scattered Straw and Frayed Burlap. I also came back around and stamped out a heart using Abandoned Coral.
Once I had the images stamped, I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I added glossy accents to the sprinkles on my pink cone. In hindsight, I should have done this after the fact since I ended up smearing this one all over (LOL)! Doh, so I made it again, cut it again. I set these aside. Next, I cut out some white using the Catherine Pooler Scallops and Dots Die Set. Then I decided how I wanted to arrange all my pieces and mounted them all on the white using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I stamped one of the sentiments on white with Momento Ink and then cut it out using the LF Extra Seentiment Banner dies. I mounted this on my white portion with more foam tape. I set this portion aside and die cut the background layer to 4.25 X 5.5. Initially I intended to use blue cardstock (in the pic below) but then I decided to use a Cantaloupe color instead. I die cut this using the Concord & 9th Stitched Stripe Card front.
I mounted my cantaloupe cardstock on my base using Scrappy Tape. Then I mounted my white section on using foam tape. I added more glossy accents after the previous debacle. Lastly, I used some glue dots and added some incandescent sequins to the mix for a little flair.
