For June, we are playing with the Whittle dies by Poppy Stamps. Have you see these yet? Check out some of the ones that are in stock at Scrap 'n Stamp HERE. They are tiny little dies and they are super adorable! I have four and I have my eye on a few more!! This weekend, June 4th to 7th, all Whittle dies are 20% off!
My card is super colourful and fun.... and perfect for a summer birthday! I took the ice cream die and cut it a few different times. It is one die but the ice cream scoop is separate from the cone by about a 1/4 inch so I was able to not waste cardstock when I cut it first out of Sandy Beach cardstock to get the cone and then out of Turquoise Sea, Lovely Lavender, Passionate Pink and Jelly Bean to get the scoops.
I started putting the card together but realized it needed "something".... so I pulled out some Lemon Drop cardstock and my A2 Layers dies from Waffle Flower (any rectangle dies would do) and I chose two dies so I could create a frame. I didn't choose two that are side by side in size but rather skipped the one size to go one bigger. I taped them together on my cardstock so that they wouldn't move before running it through my Big Shot.
I added the frame to the front of my white card base with glue as I find glue has a bit more "play time" when trying to get something in the perfect place. I then added the cone to the bottom of the framed area and then added my scoops of ice cream using foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips in Versafine Clair Nocturne and then cut it out use the Simple Strips Die and then used a piece of Passionate Pink to cute out the Simple Strips Backer. I adhered the sentiment just above centre, just in the middle.
And there you have it... a fun, colourful, summery card!
