And tell me that Sweet Ice Cream is always in season! Hee. One of my team members posted an inspirational photo. We are then to use this photo as inspiration for a project. Here was the photo she submitted...
So fun and patriotic...and perfect for July since America celebrates our Independence Day in July! So I stuck with the "red, white, and blue" theme and used shades of those colors. 😉And then just copied the popsicle theme! I loved making this card and I LOVE the different stamps in the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set that makes it so easy to get the shading on these popsicles! Here are the images in the stamp set:
Then to create the greeting, I actually embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder on Vellum Cardstock. Then just cut it out and adhered it to the popsicles. I LOVE the look of this!
Also a fun tip...see the little "scallop" below the greeting?! Well...I used the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch for that! Just punched one out, trimmed off one of the ends of the scallops, and adhered it behind the greeting! Easy, peasy!
I love this polka dot background also. I used the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder for this...and I'm swooning! 💕
