It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my team members have created for today’s challenge!
I used the Share a Milkshake Stamp Set and Dies and the Country Floral Lane 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for today’s Hop. These items are from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I had so much fun creating this card! (I am now craving a hot fudge sunday…)
Our challenge for today ‘s Hop is a theme challenge to create a fun fold card!
For this fun fold there are essentially two card bases. The first card base was cut from Mint Macaron cardstock and measures 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. The second card base acts as the center “flap” and measures 8-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ and is scored at 4-1/4″.
I selected two prints from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper pack – one in a Petal Pink flower and heart print and the second in a Sweet Sorbet stripe print. I cut two slender panels from the flower print paper to 4″ x 1-1/8″ and adhered these panels to mats in Basic White cardstock. These panels were adhered to the non-scored card base on the left and rights sides, leaving an equal reveal on three sides. The striped pattern DSP was cut to 4″ x 2-1/2″ and also adhered to a white mat, then adhered to the front of the scored card base. This scored card base was adhered to the first card base between the two slender panels.
Using Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the chocolate ice cream, strawberry ice cream, cherry and spoon and used the coordinating dies from the Share A Milkshake Dies set to cut out the images. I also cut out an ice cream cup in Mint Macaron cardstock and a scoop of vanilla ice cream from Very Vanilla cardstock. The ice cream sundae was assembled and adhered to the center panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and I fussy cut the image. The sentiment label was then adhered to the center panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and positioned above the dish of ice cream.
Hearts were stamped on the inside panel in Sweet Sorbet ink and the panel was adhered to the inside of the card.
The same heart image was stamped on the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap with the excess paper being trimmed away from the flap. Several Opaque Adhesive-backed Gems were adhered to the card front to finish off the card.
What’s your favorite ice cream? I’m a chocolate girl all the way!
